We offer a cutting-edge experience in which you can explore and experiment as you grow in confidence as a designer.
You’ll be immersed in hands-on creative projects very quickly. Through visual research you explore colour, pattern construction and mark making and become proficient in digital production and digital media. Alongside craft projects in print, weave and knit you’ll also use techniques such as CAD embroidery, digital print and laser cutting and software including Illustrator and Photoshop.
Your professional understanding is supported through exhibition opportunities at New Designers, London and Premiere Vision, Paris. Work placements have recently included Dazed and Confused Magazine, Liberty, Jonathan Saunders and Margo Selby. Graduates have gone on to work for Zandra Rhodes, Cath Kidston and DKNY.
The course team are all practising designers and will support you to develop the confidence to be independent and create original work that pushes your ideas and techniques. We welcome applications from enthusiastic students who want to learn, explore and be challenged.
