Dot One is a project put together by Iona Inglesby that offers customized design prints based off of the consumer's specific DNA pattern. Each print is entirely personalized and one-of-kind thanks to the differences found inside each person's genetic makeup. The prints relay the DNA types into colors to showcase an 8-bit style set of repetitive squares.

Inglesby creates the designs for the unique textiles and prints by collecting DNA samples from customers. Each consumer is given a take home cheek swap that is returned as a sample to Dot One. The sample is run through a lab to extract the consumer's DNA profile and turn it into a technicolor set of repeated squares. The pattern can be then converted into woven fabrics or prints and used in a variety of designs.
