Design Competition Winner – Wendy Reyes with Whales Print
We are excited to announce the winner of the fabric design competition ran through SAE Creative Media Institute in Perth.
Last year we ran the competition to come up with a fabric design exclusively for us that would be unique and original for our range of baby accessories. Previously we revealed that Mikey Couch was awarded third for his gorgeous and popular flamingos design. We also announced earlier this year that Anthea Elsner’s design of Bird Perch came in second, a beautiful cream design with little birds and nest.
And now it gives us great pleasure to declare the winner of the fabric design competition as Wendy Reyes with her Whales print.
We love both the simplicity of this design as well as the intricate details of the whale. The beautiful shades of blues stand out on the white background. We also adore the little baby whale accompanying its mother.
The brief to the students was to develop a print predominately for boys and Wendy’s design is perfect for this. Not only will it look gorgeous on boys, but we are sure that little girls will love it too.
We will be making our complete range of bibs with this fabric including our handmade whales bandana baby bib, baby bibs, large bibs and bandummy bibs. Also, our range of teething toys, baby shower and new born gifts and burp cloths will adorn this whales print.
We have really enjoyed working with everyone from SAE Creative Media Institute and foremost the lectures and students. We were overwhelmed at the quality of designs by the students. Each and very single one could have successfully gone to print on their own merits.
Apart from everyone at SAE, we would like to thank all the other people involved in the process. This includes but not limited to the photographer, models and other businesses who lent products to us for the shoots.
We hope that you have enjoyed the designs and supporting local businesses and graphic artists as much as we have.
