In this project, the brief focused on developing skills in dyeing and printing whilst designing to convey a particular ethos of a company. I chose to explore designs for Pixar Animation Studios, as I was drawn to the positive energy and people-centred company values. This allowed the ability to pursue interests in bold and playful printmaking.
Due to the element of inclusivity that Pixar demonstrates, it was important to consider a gender-neutral “uniform” design. The pant-choice of culottes allowed a large canvas for featuring the various fabric designs. The techniques featured in this project are silk painting, marbling, devoré, tie-dye, screen printing and corn block stamping. Each fabric design is unique and shows an abstract design based on various different Pixar films.
