Inspired by the geometric forms of Brutalist architecture, Hughes aspires towards transforming these common shapes via the creative interplay of collage and vibrant colors.

Her cut-and-paste-technique designs offer a vivid and varied counterpoint for many European cityscapes, “injecting some brightness into the grey and concrete world seen in my primary research.”

Hughes envisions public transport as a primary application for her designs. She also emphasizes the importance of being a steward to the environment, adding, “Keeping sustainability in mind, I have used only donated yarns throughout my final year.”
