Rachel Parker’s work explores digital print and hand embroidery combining the flexibility and immediacy of print with the slow simplicity of stitching by hand. Cross-stitching, grids and symbols are big influences in her work; she paints, draws and photoshops, but most of all she stitches. A graduate of Norwich University of the Arts Rachel describes her creative process as ‘Digital Craft’, combining the handmade with digital technology and describes her designs as “geometrics with a difference”.
This wallpaper created for CAMAC’s 2012 Design Competition. Inspired by the formalised structure found in the work of renowned architect and designer Augustus Pugin, designs for this collection were built from contrasting areas of flat colour, crafted together through a form of digital collage. Pattern is organised into architectural shapes that cut through the wallpaper. I was awarded two work placements; one with prestigious design studio Zoffany, and one with CAMAC Design to assist with the competition in 2013, one year on.

The wallpaper maestros Graham & Brown have once again joined forces with fellow Blackburn designers Wayne and Geraldine Hemingway to create their new innovative capsule collection of wallpaper. Following the success of The Vintage Collection in 2011, this new retro-inspired range explores new boundaries for bold design in the home. The new collection includes four designs, each taking inspiration from eclectic design and color. ‘Carnival’ is a graphic wallpaper design with lozenge blocks in black, white and yellow whereas ‘Wonky Boxes’ is an energetic print in a pale grey making it subtle but striking for the walls. Both ‘Planking’ and ‘The Wall’ take a relaxed but contemporary twist on the usual brink and wood surface designs making them an easy way to bring a touch of industrial to the home!
