After a long hard think about all the products and designs I would like to create we’ve been asked as part of our brief to reflect on whether we will be a printer, stitcher or both for this project and I have very much decided that for this brief I will take the role of a printer. Roughly knowing what my colour palette will be, I feel the colours will be best represented through print, either hand printing techniques or digitally printed. I want to create a graphic like style and throughout my last couple of years of print and stitch I feel this will also be best achieved through print techniques.
The idea of working with print for a gift wrap collection seems to be an obvious choice for me, the techniques I intend to experiment and work with are,
- Flocking – for added texture and a raised effect
- Digital print
- Screen printing
- Lino print
