Design Stars!

I’m super excited to announce that I’ve been booked on the judging panel for the 2011 Design Stars challenge organised by the wonderful Design Initiative. I’ll also be running lots of workshops along with holding a print masterclass weekend.

Design Stars is funded by Liverpool City Council & the Arts Council & has a number of great sponsors. It really is a great opportunity to develop & nourish young talent.

Here’s some further information:

Developing the design stars of tomorrow…

Design Stars
is a project by Design Initiative for young people aged 11 to 16 years old.

Open to all secondary schools in Liverpool, the competition seeks to nurture and encourage young local design talent in its early stages, and is free to enter.

Following on from last year’s success we are delighted to be back with three top designers to bring you three NEW exciting competition categories to enter:

  • Product Design: in association with ReThinkthings
  • Surface Pattern Design: in association with Rachael Taylor Designs
  • Video Games Design: in association with International Hobo

All three design teams will be offering their support and guidance throughout the competition, from setting the briefs, delivering workshops in schools to judging the entries and running winners’ master-classes.

I feel very honoured to be running the Surface Pattern Category & I’m really looking forward to getting started in the new year.
