Graphic designers around the world are wildly enthusiastic about the fact that textile design is truly having a moment in 2020. From London to Paris to New York, bold and unique designs and prints are walking every fashion runway; while colorful and creative interior design is dominating the world of furniture and home decor.
Media platforms are awash with the work of creative textile designers around the world, creating a highly-networked marketplace for design work that did not exist a mere decade ago.
Everyone can agree that while we love an eye-dazzling textile creation, it takes a lot of work on the part of a very talented textile designer to achieve the end result. Sadly too often, however, the technological needs of modern designers fall by the wayside. While there is indeed a very heavy focus on automation in many aspects of textile and soft goods manufacturing, most of the time, this focus is on final stages of production, only. Designers can, however, benefit immensely from automation at the very beginning during the design process, as well.
