In this student textbook, Amanda Briggs-Goode looks at the practicalities of printed textile design and the role of the printed textile designer. The book describes the fundamentals of how to design, including an exploration of the basics of colour, drawing, composition, repeat and the transference from flat textile to three-dimensional product, the design process, and the impact of using digital and hand printing methods. The book also places printed textile design in the context of the market and manufacturing. Finishing with a discussion of career paths, the book will help demystify the design process. Illustrated throughout, the book will feature specially commissioned photographs of print processes. It will also include case studies and showcase work by contemporary print designers, providing an invaluable guide to the study and practice of textile design.
