The Textiles and Business Studies at University of Brighton chose a superb print spec for their self promotional portfolios. Each of the five students opted for the same technical print, a Colorplan Smoke Grey cover punctuated with white ink printing to the outer. This high end combination produces a stand out publication which really marks the students apart from their peer group. Any agency of creative director receiving a copy could not fail to be impressed.
If a group of fellow students on your course are all considering where to print a self promotion booklet or project then joining forces and agreeing on the same print spec is a great idea. It means we can print them all at the same time and help reduce your combined costs. White ink printing onto Colorplan is more expensive than standard CMYK printing on our house papers but it does create a very illustrious aesthetic.
The established textiles degree mixes creativity with commercial insight. It has a strong track record of successful graduates who send fantastic work through to Ex Why Zed for FMP, dissertation and degree show catalogue printing. The talented students then continue their careers across the breadth of the textiles industry, including in fashion, art and interiors.
During their time at Brighton, they explore printed, woven or knitted textiles and specialise in the area that most suits you. Students are encouraged to experiment with materials, reconsidering what textile design and production means in a world where issues of sustainability and ethical manufacture are high on the agenda.
Expert lecturers and technicians help develop skills in drawing and in concept and design development, using both traditional craft and digital techniques. A practical approach to business studies is integrated into every aspect of the course.
