Level 4 BA (Hons) Textiles students complete a 4 week Live Brief with Tigerprint.

The summer term involves Level 4 students going out on placement to gain industry experience. Students either go to work directly with textile, fashion or interior companies or work as freelance designers on a live project.

Elaine Field and Heather Williams from Tigerprint, a renowned stationary, card and gifting company came and set a project with a choice of two briefs – ‘Christmas’ or ‘Female Luxury’. Over four weeks our students responded to their chosen brief and produced a collection of research, drawing, design development and final outcomes including card designs, wrapping paper, and 3D stationary accessories.

Three lucky students – Bethany Coggins and Sarah Hewland from Level 4 and Ellie Nixon-Hill from Level 6 won the opportunity to work with Tigerprint and are currently on work placements at their studio in Bradford.
