WINNER NAME:

Alys Gilbert @alys_ruby_studio 

UNIVERSITY:

BA (Hons) Textiles, Edinburgh College of Art

TITLE OF WORK:

One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure

DESCRIPTION OF WORK:

My graduate collection tells, through print design, the narrative of my discovery of pottery fragments on the edge of Loch Fyne. It taught me to embrace the lesser expected moments in life. I wanted to celebrate an immersion in memory and the heritage of design through a contemporary lense.

AWARD BRIEF DESCRIPTION:

Liberty asked the designers to take them on a visual journey from initial idea or concept, through creative development, to their final design.
