Pentland Brands Internship

2019
Pentland Brands
Creative Talent Internship

During my time at Pentland Brands Ltd I worked on a 4 week self directed project. The project brief was to create SMU’s for S/S20 Canterbury for ASOS. At the end of the internship period I presented the four different concept themes I had developed. This required me to research trends keeping in focus the heart of rugby as well as appealing to the 16-25, gym lad, festival young target man audience.

Classic Floral

The Classic Floral is inspired by traditional floral patterns from Japanese tattoos and woven interior fabrics. I focused on Japanese style tattoos to link with the 2020 Rugby World Cup being held in Japan alongside the increasing amount of young men who are interested in tattoo’s.

 

This floral design revamps menswear florals designs by creating an instantly classically cool print for men’s active wear. Using block colours and black outlines creates an illustrative intricate intertwined cherry blossom print design.

Origins of Canterbury

The Origins of Canterbury all over print designs are inspired by the natural landscape of Canterbury, New Zealand. The imagery has been inspired by the grassy plains which dominate the local environment in Canterbury.

 

For these designs I have focused on the shapes and texture of specific plants native to the region; The Norfolk pine, Aciphylla, and its many grass varieties. I also looked at the native  Kiwi bird used in the Canterbury logo for shape and colour inspiration. From this I created a layered grassy repeat, a trending camo style graphic and an animal skin style design. Camo and animal prints continued to be a key features for S/S20 men’s athletic wear.

Twickenham Geo

Geometric prints were a future trend for S/S 20 particularly prominent in men’s sportswear. They are a ‘nod’ to the technical advancement in athletic material technology.

 

Twickenham is considered to be the home of England rugby. The geometric shapes are inspired by the architectural structure of the stadium both inside. To inform the colour palette I have used the mixture of the materials which make up the stadium from the metal structure, grass field concrete steps and plastic chairs.

 

The Twickenham Geo is a bright tessellating geometric design, ideal for both the confident gym lad and a necessity for the fashionforward festival goer.

Bright Futures

Liberty
Design Competition Entry

Inspired by my own experience of graduating with an uncertain future I created a series of head scarf designs, showing how my thoughts look on the outside and I started to explore the idea of navigating labyrinths and mazes. In the artwork I have depicted colliding blockage style shapes which are curving and bending representing new obstacles at every turn.
