The Inspirational Rachael Taylor!

It's been a while since I've posted, I recently graduated and once you’re out of uni it’s strange but you feel as though there is no net beneath you anymore.  You've been thrown out into the world and as a young designer fresh out of university it is extremely daunting!

This post is on the amazingly inspirational Rachael Taylor.  She gave a couple of lectures to my Textile Design group whilst I was at uni and I can still remember the feeling I had after her first talk.  I was filled with excitement and it was the pivotal point in my life where I knew roughly what direction I wanted to go down with my designing.  I went from wondering if I was on the right course and having no idea at all of where I wanted to go to being full of confidence in my work and I can't thank her enough for helping me figure this out.

Her work is bright and bold with beautiful colour combinations and a uniquely quirky style.  She is an inspiration and will continue to be throughout my career, I just hope someday I can make an impact on new designers the way she has on me.

I would also like to add that Rachael’s and Beth Nicholls Surface PatternDesign Course is amazing and for anyone wanting to delve into the world of pattern design it is a perfect place to start!
