Competition brief

We asked students to create a surface design inspired by the work of the Omega Workshops that can be applied to a card or textiles product for sale in The Courtauld Gallery and Ulster Museum shops.

The winning entries was selected by a panel of judges at The Courtauld and Ulster Museum, and the product was manufactured and launched for sale in the gift shops at both organisations. Winners saw their design come to life by taking part in the production process and were invited to the museum or gallery to see their design on sale.
