Here are a few of my personal favourites from the Illustration, Graphic Design and Textiles shows.
Firstly BA Illustration and Gary Hunt:
Interesting mixes of imagery, contrasting flatness and depth of colour
Nice broken surfaces of what looks like mono print and/or screen print and collage...?
Harking back to the lino prints and colour sense of the 50s and 60s - Sophie Douglas:
Lovely flat gouache paintings with an element of repeat through print
Some ex-students of mine graduating this year...
Clean accurate well chosen text and nice layout
Lauren has a knack of simplifying information and had a skill with photography when on my course
I like the fun play on tools and equipment to create flowers for a re-design of the Chelsea Flower Show logo; rendered skilful by assured placement
Adam's work is mature and sophisticated, maybe he will be freelance - he has a good website
Full of fun and colour, Katie's work is happy and accessible
From BA Surface Pattern and BA Textiles, starting with cut outs from Yijing Gao:
I taught Stephen when he was doing his First Diploma in 2006! It's really great to see how he has progressed from then, through the Textiles National Diploma and on to NUCA to create a bold graduation show.
Lovely drawing sits well with a good sense of pattern and sensitivity to colour
From stencil cut outs that provide a refined delicate line to digital responses, Vicki can pull an accomplished variety of pattern repeats from simple classic subject matter, creating something new yet seemingly familiar.
