Textile Design Education in Digital Inkjet Fabric Printing
Abstract:Historically textile-printing technology has changed the style and workflow of the textile design field. In addition to the conventional printing workflow, digital fabric printing technology has now created two new textile design workflows: 1) Digital strike-offs and 2) Full digital production. These two structural production shifts have influenced the definition and methodology of printed textile design in both the commercial industry and the textile education field. Textile designers of the future will be trained in short run-production samples, individual entrepreneurship, as well as have a broader understanding of the definition of textile design. Ultimately, the study of textile print technology will have an impact on a designer's creativity and business sensibility, and this is the core for a successful textile design education.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
