I'm currently half way through my two week placement at Muraspec design studio in Kent, I've really enjoyed my time in the studio so far and have been creating new designs mainly based on tribal and African patterns aswell as producing professional mood boards. The studio is lovely, set in a small village outside of Maidstone and it's a really friendly studio environment with loads of space and the staff are lovely! On the second day there was a site tour, which involved being shown the whole factory and how it operates - and given some not so pretty details of accidents that involved workers losing fingers!
Next week I've got to think of a new theme and create designs based on this as well as oversee my winning design from the student competition being put into print! I'll report back when I've completed my placement & will hopefully be able to share some pictures..meanwhile time to get my thinking cap on for some new ideas!
