I am a Print and Graphic Designer based in Dorset with over 2 years experience designing repeat patterns and placement prints for lifestyle brands. My designs have featured on clothing, accessories and gifts. I have also created graphics and typography for marketing purposes.
I have been fortunate enough to have lived by the sea for most of my life, influencing my designs. I try to gain as much inspiration as possible when I go out walking by taking a camera and capturing my natural surroundings.
My favourite medium is watercolour, but I have also used collage and other media to create my designs. View my portfolio online to see a range of my designs: www.paigecritchley.com/portfolio.
Transferring my work onto fabric excites me as it adds a new intriguing dimension to my work, particularly when working with a fabric that has exciting properties, such as transparency or surface texture.
I’ve studied Fine Art and Fashion from as early as GCSE Level and completed a Level 4 Diploma in Art and Design at Falmouth University. My passion for Textile Design became apparent through this, and has continued at De Montfort University where I achieved a First Class Honours in Printed Textiles.
