Judge's comments:

A bold project that explores colour and texture and their relationship. The judges praised the deep of design thought and process as well as the beautiful execution.


‘Chroma’ is a collection exploring the relationship between colour and tactility, analysing how these elements interconnect with one another in the physical world. My project is derived from the historic colour theorist Johannes Itten and his seven colour contrasts. ‘Chroma’ focuses on rebelling against the flatness of colour in today's digital society and reintroduces the three dimensional form of colour. Using colour theory and Itten’s colour contrasts, this collection generates diverse perceptions of colour which encourage the user to interact with the surfaces of my textiles.
