In this year’s Design of Distinction competition hosted by Kravet, Inc., students in the Materials and Methods course were challenged to design an original textile. Utilizing the aspects of a mythical creature of their choice, students were required to not only design a textile and detail its specifications, but also to provide a graphic representation of the pattern both as a 2D image and applied to a piece of upholstery from the Kravet line in a 3D rendering. Students used a variety of media to complete their designs. The top 11 entries, as determined by faculty judging, were sent to Kravet for a final decision.
Kravet awarded First Prize to Harrison Franke. The Runner Up was Kristen Rushlow.
