British Ceramic Tile supports the next generation of designers
British Ceramic Tile, has proudly sponsored the 'Live Design' project as part of The Flooring Show 2014.
Developed to bring insight to the flooring industry, the 'Live Design' project, which formed part of the trends hub, showcased the next generation of designers, who were tasked with producing inspirational flooring designs over the three-day period.
During the event, five students from the Art & Design School at Huddersfield University competed against each other to design a pattern for a flooring product that would appeal to the Millennial age group.
Mark Rigby, business development manager at British Ceramic Tile, was tasked with the job of choosing a winner. Mark said: "Supporting young, British designers is central to British Ceramic Tile's values and vision, as it is this generation who will continue to drive forward design innovation within the industry.
All five students set the bar high with their designs and choosing a winner proved difficult but Briony Ramsden's designs stood out for her fusion of floral and geometric elements, clever use of scale, repeating pattern and her interpretation of color, combining both elements of the trends brief and making them her own. Her presentation skills were also second to none; Briony has a very bright future ahead as a designer."
To incentivise the 'Live Design' project, British Ceramic Tile offered £150 to the winner Briony, while Alice McBride was announced as the runner up and given a £50 prize.
