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.
One of the key concepts you’ll need to consider is ‘Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.’ In this blog we take a look at what this means.

SDC EC in association with the B D Somani Institute of Art and Fashion Technology in Mumbai, India organised this event which was attended by faculty, students and invited guests.
The author and motivational speaker Tony Gaskins said “If you don’t build your dream someone will hire you to help build theirs.” The message was create a niche for yourself and be the best in your field.
We first met Matthew Lenehan at Belfast Metropolitan College when he took part in their in-house competition, using the SDC International Design Competition brief, and where he was announced as the winner. Matthew went on to enter the Irish heat of the SDC International Design Competition. On both occasions the judges were impressed with the standard of his work. We asked him to tell us about his SDC journey so far.
