Level 4 BA (Hons) Textiles student Yana Sealy-Bell completes a two week placement at Bay & Brown, Print Design Studio.

“I recently completed a two-week placement at a textile design studio in London called Bay & Brown.

Throughout the placement I completed a variety of different tasks which included drawing and creating textures for the in-house designers to use in Photoshop, preparing fabric samples ready for trade shows and assisted on sales appointments with clients.

It was a great experience and has given me an insight into the textiles industry. The team at Bay & Brown were welcoming and encouraging in developing my own particular interests and push creativity and passion.

This placement has been hugely beneficial to me and I strongly recommend taking up any opportunities to gain these experiences.

It will teach you more about textiles and the industry, but also about yourself in revealing key interests, strengths and weaknesses.

I am excited and looking forward to other placements opportunities in the future!”
