Jenni Draper - Industry Judge

Umbrella Prints is proud to introduce our second Industry Judge, Art Director/Designer, Jenni Draper.

Jenni has worked in the design industry for over15 years. She began in textiles, working for many years for Australia’s leading fashion and home-wares companies. Using her vast knowledge of design and colour she then embarked on a freelancing career in publishing design. Her illustration and design work has been seen in Australia and internationally across a broad range of design disciplines from textiles and interiors to children’s books and magazines.

We first noticed Jenni's work whilst reading one of our favourite magazines here in Australia, Green. After some further investigation it came as no surprise to us that the art direction of the magazine is indeed informed by the eye and talent of a fellow textile designer. We love the magazines warmth and truth and the impeccable style Jenni adds to every page. We think Green magazines philosophy on sustainability & good design is speaking our language and the Trimmings Competition (using the last little pieces to inspire design) is a worthy match.
