British Ceramic Tile enjoyed a successful event during CDW, welcoming other like-minded British brands to partake in its celebration of great British design.
British Ceramic Tile launched its first ever initiative with Central Saint Martins. A new project launched by the company to champion young, creative talent, students from the Ceramic Design course at CSM were invited to design and pitch their own surface patterns to a panel of industry professionals for the chance to win a placement with the British Ceramic Tile design team and a £500 gift voucher.
The students were briefed to create a surface design that typifies Britain on a tile. The winner of the competition was talented young creative, Nishat Tahsin. A third year student on the Ceramic Design course, Nishat used the work of renowned textile designer, William Morris as a reference point, drawing inspiration from his floral motifs and combining them with designs inspired by the industrial revolution. Nishat will be carrying out her fortnight long placement with British Ceramic Tile this summer.
