About the Art

Following a design brief from FolioFocus, classmates used their own perspective of 'Waves & Washes' to create these works of art.

Abstract, vibrant and playful colour palettes were the focus on week 4 - the classmates captured the surf and swell within their designs and created beautiful soft furnishings with some added charm.

Open Call for Features on Rise Design & Shine: Submissions Now Open

Rise Design & Shine was born of the idea that we are stronger and more motivated when we work together. I'm on the hunt for creatives to join our Rise Design & Shine Contributors! From moodboards, to doodles, artist takeovers to your news... If you have something you'd like to share with the RDS community I'd love to hear from you. I'm looking for both one-off contributions (see below for more info) and people who are interested in doing a regular feature.

Designer Takeover (one week stretch)

We're looking for members of our design community to takeover our Instagram account for a week at a time, showcasing their design process, WIPs, studio/working space (warts and all) and give us an insight into their world.
