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.
Students from Ireland once again demonstrated outstanding talent at the Irish heat of the SDC International Design Competition. Hosted by the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in Dublin, we welcomed students from Galway Mayo Institute of Technology, Belfast Met, University of Ulster and NCAD for a day of keynote presentations and competition judging.
