AVA CST Level 1 2018 – Recent graduate Angelica Chrysanthou

2018 got off to a great start with another successful Cad Specialist Training course in January. In this latest weeks intensive course, students covered a range of AVA modules such as Create and Repeat, Quick Separation, Colour and Materialize.

Printed textile designer, Angelica Chrysanthou, recently graduated with a First Class Honours from Loughborough University. We first met Angelica back in 2017 at the Texprint London event which was held at Chelsea College of Arts. This annual event showcases some of the UK’s textile designer talent and it was here that Angelcia’s vibrant work caught our eye. It was because of her strong use of colour and pattern that she was amongst 3 other designers who were awarded with an ‘AVA training award.’

Specialising in digital and screen-printing developed from hand illustrations and paintings, Angelica tells us more about her work and what inspires her: “My inspiration comes from a variety of sources however; I begin the design process by travelling to new places and exploring cultures. This gives me the opportunity to expand my knowledge and collect first-hand research to develop into illustrations for print designs. The designs pay homage to the culture and place the collection is based on and the prints emphasise on surface pattern through screen and digital prints.”

We also saw Angelica in September  2017, where she was exhibiting with Texprint at Premiere Vision Paris. Picture below: Angelica on left hand side and Debbie Buchan- AVAs’ Customer Services Director on right hand side.

“Exhibiting at PV was a brilliant experience! It was great to build contacts and interact with people from across the globe that were interested in my print collections. Since Premiere Vision I took part in the comON scheme, which Undustria Como selected me for at Texprint London. It is a three-month design traineeship in a production company in the textiles district of Como, Italy. I undertook the traineeship at Tessitura Taiana Virgilio S.p.A where I worked alongside the senior print designer to produce a series of CAD illustrative prints for the Taiana Cult menswear shirting SS19 collection.”  

Angelica has clearly been very busy and her feet haven’t touched the ground since graduating in summer last year!

Angelica’s signature style is very bold and bright. She creates collections looking at a range of colour palettes from numerous influences around her.  She tells us that she finds the majority of her inspiration for colour  from photographs and landscapes that all relate to the chosen theme. We asked her, what she thought of AVA’s colouring options…

“The options are brilliant I have been able to create a variety of colourways that give the prints different moods and even the tonal designs can be recoloured with ease.”

Angelica is currently working hard, creating more print collections to expand her portfolio. We interviewed her after the CST week with us to find out more about her aspirations and what her dream job would be?

“I aspire to be an established printed textile designer in a recognised brand that is known for considered handcrafted print designs that use both screen-printing and CAD design to develop the designs from original concept to production. I would like to work in London because there many cultural activities to do and lots of museums and exhibitions to visit, however I would be happy to re-locate for the right jobs.”
