Digital Printing Textiles Designer Bridget Beth Denson

Bridget Beth Denson takes her inspiration from tribal backgrounds like Yinka Shonibare and Textiles Company Dagama fabrics based in South Africa. Here, we showcase her work in digital printing and textiles design, which she completed her degree in at UCLAN.

“I would say most of my work is very different to commercial designs, when working to a brief I like to look outside the ‘norm’, to create individual and diverse surface pattern prints. I have a big love for tribal art and patterns, in past projects I’ve tried combine a mixture of cultures creating a world where organic and geometric shapes work together. My inspirations are mostly from tribal backgrounds like Yinka Shonibare and Textiles Company Dagama fabrics based in South Africa.

 

In other work such as my florals I also try to make my designs abstract looking using exotic and tropical plants for a different approach. A big influence in my florals has to be Marimekko because of the use of big block colours and patterns. I’ve loved art from a very young age in school I received an A* in my gcse’s after that I went on to college to study a BTECH national diploma in advanced art, this is where I found my love for textiles.

After college I spent 2 years at the University of Huddersfield exploring textiles design in fashion and interiors which combined knit weave and print. After realising that wasn’t where I wanted to be I then transferred to The University of Central Lancashire where I did a final 2 years specialising in more surface pattern and digital printing, in which I gained a 2:1 with honours degree.

My future dream would to have my own range of printed fabrics but I want to learn and experience so much more about the textile industry first, not just in surface pattern but have a dabble in other sectors too.”
