DESIGN REQUIREMENTS

Using the CAD file (provided in PCX format) of a standard Ballroom & Pre-function area, create a design solution of your choice considering the following:

  • Ballroom & Pre-function designs are to be different but designed to coordinate.
  • Number of colors not to exceed 12 in total.
  • Please think of each area as your blank canvas, designs confined only by the walls, the most innovative approach would be to avoid using surface patterns with an obvious repeat, with the exception of textural elements used to add detail and layering. We’d like to see how the entire floor space could become one large design.

Submit final patterns with photos or visuals, concept boards, sketches, write up, or other inspiration for PDI (Precision Dye Injected) carpets. Completed package to be sent to Durkan for judging.
