CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Steph Link and Lane Friedman, both of Missouri-based Stephens College, have taken first and second places in the home/interiors category, respectively, as part of the Computer Integrated Textile Design Association’s (CITDA) 2005 scholarship contest.
Applicants were required to create an original collection of four textiles print designs on a computer, draw inspiration from the theme and create fabrics appropriate to the categories specified for interior furnishings. Contestants then had to illustrate the print designs in end-products and fill them in at the appropriate scale.
Among other software prizes, first-place winners received $500.
Judges for the home category were: David Williams, Springs Industries, Inc., director of design for national accounts; Dewey Cabe, Target Corporation, senior designer responsible for global home, modern home, contemporary home and Isaac Mizrahi home; and Ellen Waldrup, freelance designer, former ­d­esign director at Culp Inc., and designer/owner of Excelsior Design.
