Are you thinking of entering the SDC International Design Competition 2017? The theme for 2017 is ‘design for a circular economy’. As always, the focus is on colour and its use in the design process, and you will need to analyse and justify the resources used. This includes the dyes, chemicals, materials and processes used to commercially produce your product within a circular economy.
The SDC International Design Competition challenges students’ creative and imaginative use of colour in fashion and textiles. With high levels of interest within the UK each year, five regional heats are held, each selecting a winner to go forward to the UK final.
Each year the SDC International Design Competition attracts hundreds of entries worldwide.
However, not everyone who is interested in the competition is eligible to enter. We were therefore excited to be contacted by tutor Claire Concannon from Belfast Metropolitan College who had read this year’s brief ‘Making it Personal’ and thought it a great project but her students were too young to enter. Claire asked if we would consider supporting an ‘in-house’ competition working with the brief.
