Scottish blogger Alison Bigg of The Great Scottish Indoors interviewed Textiles Scotland member Leigh Bagley; exploring his love of colour, his inspiration from his environment, and his design hero Hella Jongerius.
"I tend to start with a quick sketch or drawing, taking inspiration from research or photographs I’ve collected on my travels. The current collection of wallpaper designs are all taken from elements of the architectural print series I produced in 2012. The digital drawing process offers endless possibilities so simplifying forms down to basic shapes has its challenges. I draw in adobe Illustrator creating images that are vector based. This software uses mathematical equations and geometric primitives (points, lines, and shapes) to create art that is clean, and can be scaled infinitely, without any loss of quality. This is incredibly important as what might be a small detail in a drawing might become a defining form in a large scale wallpaper design."
