MAKE London Designer Profile: Jamie Smith

Jamie Smith is high-school student at Oak Ridge Secondary School and a student of Laura Briscoe. Her MAKE London design is called “The Evolution of the Communicative Textiles.”

Using media like linoleum, Cds, and floppy disks, Jamie has created a work that shows the evolution of communication – from the printing press to the personal computer.

The bottom of the skirt transitions from black and white newsprint to full-colour magazines. It’s bodice is studded with keyboard keys and adorned with CDs. Jamie has also made a belt clasp from a USB cable and a game controller head accessory to accompany the design.
