SCRAPBOOK - inspire me/staffs uni

students from staffordshire university who are studying for their BAHons surface pattern design recently took part in a live brief from 'inspire me papers', designing for the scrap-booking market. the students brief was to select a colour group of between four and six papers from the inspire me papers core range to form the basis of a core collection. then design four patterned papers for the scrapbook market to co-ordinate with their chosen core palette based upon any theme and in any medium! finally they had to then create a further 4 patterns as an extension of the collection. the verdict from inspire me's brand manager was very positive "we had hoped that there may be one or two really good results - many of the students work was so well designed and executed that several designs and products could literally go straight to market". see more collections and the full story online here.

Amazing :) Other students also created 4 or more core patterned collection which was then used for either Stationary, Greetings, Craft or Wedding too :) Featured further down in the Inspire me blog.

These projects also featured same time as the Inspire Me Paper project. Everyone did a great job with so many idea's going around with student Claire Mayes getting her work featured and downloadable now for Inspire me. Well done Staffs Uni students. Can't wait to see final degree show. Watch out for Staffs Uni class of 2011!

Thank you featuring a brilliant class of work. Would love to see the other classes work also featured. x
