(Matthew Taylor)

This general introduction for students interested in the printed textile design industry focuses on skills necessary for today's print designer with special emphasis on the importance of understanding context, considering outside influences, and communicating ideas. Russell (Manchester Metropolitan Univ., UK) emphasizes the design brief, with its component parts of research, development, color (colorways and coordinates), final design repeat, the design's use, and manufacturing technology. Mention is made of design categories before the book turns to how traditional designs and visual culture can inspire design work both in and out of one's personal style. Russell places strong emphasis on career information, including the importance of the professional portfolio and differences between employment and freelance work. The book addresses ethics, environmental concerns, and social issues present in thefashion and textile industry today, both in the text itself and in a special end section. End-of-chapter questions and sidebar information provide discussion points and author's tips. This book is part of a design series and would be appropriate for fabric/textile, fashion, and interior design programs. Since the author is British and the publisher Swiss, some minor language differences are evident.



Summing up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates, two-year technical program students, faculty, and general readers.
