Bright eccentric colours and twisted photography capturing the sick reality of our minds when affected by the internet is the forefront of Hannah Paxton’s collection ‘Distorted Reality’. Hannah is currently studying Design for Textiles at Heriot-Watt specialising in Printed textiles.

Hannah likes to explore different themes throughout her collections, expressing them through a bright colour palette and focusing on mark-making to showcase these themes. Her designs are intended to catch the viewers with a busy design that intends to lead the viewer in further. A bright and bold colour palette is the core element of Hannah’s collections, capturing the audience with striking visuals. Hannah explored the dark topic of the internet and how social media especially affects the young generation’s mind, capturing this twisted effect through distorted photography. She likes to use various elements throughout her collections; exploring techniques like painting, drawing, mark-making, photography, distortion and printed textile manufacturing.
