Emerging Design Talent: Victoria Robinson

Today I am introducing new and emerging design talent which has become a regular addition to Creative Sketchbook. Victoria Robinson's country life inspired designs instantly grabbed my attention when she exhibited at New Designers 2012. Victoria has just graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a Ba (Hons) in Textile Design.

Victoria's collection below is called 'Country Pursuits' and her inspiration was taken from the North Yorkshire moors and the rugged English countryside. Originating from North Yorkshire myself with a family upbringing deeply rooted in the countryside, I just fell in love with Victoria's choice of traditional imagery with a modern and fresh approach. Victoria cleverly combines strong hand drawn game birds and natural foliage with an innovative colour palette of mustard, aubergine, raspberry and stone providing a contemporary twist.

This collection beautifully illustrates and captures English identity through a broad range of techniques including digital print, hand print and jacquard to create a versatile and appealing collection. I can't wait to see what Victoria creates next!
