A presentation by designer David Trubridge.
From the artist on telling stories- I do not design to fulfill a practical function. I design to communicate, to tell a story, to relate what I find in the mountains and wilderness and what it is to be human. As an artist I develop forms and a vocabulary from what I see and feel around me. This is my personal language that I use to tell my story. As a designer I can then use these forms and vocabulary to build with. If I didn’t do that first development part of the process, my work would be derivative, and I would only be able to reshuffle existing forms that others have developed – what is the point in that?! Finally I use my craft knowledge to find a way to make the design. Art, craft and design: all are equally important parts of the whole creative process. All the way though this process we try to be as caring and sensitive to the environment as possible, and to pass on that sense of care within the object.
