Illustrative cutouts, a focus on textures, and the WGSN Spring/Summer 2022 macrotrend “Euphoric” embodies my final year display in Kildare Village.
“Euphoric” explores escapism, and the power art & design has to boost moods and create positivity. This trend looks at a rebellious edge, with a mix of creativity and freedom, which is something we’re all exploring after a crazy two years.
My design stemmed from an illustration I sketched; while being altered throughout the design process, I still wanted to keep the appearance of a life-size illustration.
I used various textures such as fur, gloss paints, matte paints, wool, and vinyl to bring the design to life. I used illustrator to create my window vinyl design, hand-cut foam board using a jigsaw, laser-cut shapes and built a curved table from wood.
