University of Derby Mural - Crumble Collective

  • Laura Perks
  • Fausta Zak

In June 2017, Crumble Collective were approached by the University to design and complete a 20x10ft mural next to the new Chandos Pole Street Fashion and Textiles building. We were asked to create a design which reflected the local area and also their Derby students. Therefore, our mural features the rolling hills of the Derbyshire Dales, poppies in homage to fellow Derby Alumni Paul Cummins, and Derby students flying away equipped with seeds of knowledge from the University. Whilst the bulk of the design leaned heavily towards my composition and illustrative style - the exception being Faustyna’s beautiful floating character designs - it was ultimately a combination of individual ideas and styles that blend together to create one ginormous cohesive piece.
