Ruby Childs is a 3D Textile Designer, focusing on textiles within a digital landscape. She is particularly interested in how we bring textiles and materials to life, through interaction and play within a dynamic landscape.
Ruby has spent 7+ years as a Programmer and Data Scientist and more recently within Product. This has allowed her to consider how we develop digital practices and sketchbooks. This intersection of skills has allowed her to develop a digital approach to design of tools and textiles.
She was inspired to study at the RCA, from her love of design and seeing how impactful digital practices can be. Her work begins to consider alternative design systems for textile materials.
