Sourcing Ideas: Researching colour- surface- structure- texture and pattern is a visual goldmine for designers hungry for inspiration. The book includes a huge array of beautiful and diverse images- but it is more than a sourcebook. Using a number of different approaches- it teaches readers how to look for inspiration in the world around them- and how to extract visual information from a variety of sources using five key themes - colour- surface- structure- texture and pattern. By exploring new ways of seeing ordinary things- Sourcing Ideas enables readers to create extraordinary effects with textiles. The first in AVAs Basics Textile Design series- the book follows the successful formula of Basics Fashion Design 01: Research and Design- which is used by students and designers all over the world.

Covering print- weave and embellishment- this is the perfect book for all textiles and fashion students- as well as any arts and crafts enthusiasts who are looking for inspiration and tips on how to carry out effective and wide-ranging research. The logical structure of the book enables readers to dip in and out with ease; case studies and interviews with successful contemporary designers give guidelines and encouragement for aspiring designers; thought-provoking quotes and exercises- and above all the huge selection of images- provide the stimulation that will get you reaching for your sketchbook immediately....
