An Investigation on Switching Behaviours: Shifting Creative Cycle from Hand to Digital and Back Again

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


This practice based study investigates how computer (CAD/CAM) and hand
tools are best utilized by the pattern designer to realise their own creative pattern
This study reflects on how I actually practice, truly engage with tools and reflect
through the practise of pattern design. As a pattern designer I am able to make
observations that could only be gained by being a practitioner. Within this
study I am both a practice-led researcher and the pattern design practitioner.
This enables me to present a unique insight into the processes taking place
when pattern designing and selecting tools.
