Case Study

Ryan Whitfield

Foundation Diploma in Art and Design


Business-minded Ryan Whitfield has dreams of creating his own brand following his Diploma year at the University. For his Degree Show piece, the former Thorp Academy pupil created a texture-inspired creation.

I wanted to play on the desires people have to touch textures and textiles, but because this is full of pins, they might get hurt. It’s a look but don’t touch piece. It’s taken me about six weeks in total to pull all of this together. I think it’s very bold and stands out from the crowd.

I’ve loved doing the course, it’s really given me that freedom to work the way I wanted while receiving the right amount of support."
