Title: Ideation of selected natural objects for textile design using the computer
Authors: Aboagye, Isaac
Issue Date: 21-Oct-2009
Series/Report no.: 4684;
Abstract: The development of textile designs has witnessed an enormous growth rate from periods when designs were solely made with hand drawing tools to the present day where computer-aided design software programmes have simplified and improved the processes. It is for this reason that this project explores the possibilities of generating motifs and forming textile designs from selected natural objects with computer aided software. It discusses other disciplines of design and the relevant features of the computer design software used in the project. The step-by-step procedure used in generating the motifs and designs with Adobe Photoshop 7.0, with the results and appreciation has been revealed and discussed. This project contains relevant basic design principles and provides step-by-step information for using the software in designing textile fabrics. The study shows that the computer with suitable design software can be used to manipulate any picture or sketch of an object to suit the designers own needs.
