New Designer strengthens the Newhey Design Team

We’re delighted to welcome Joanna Brockbank – an exciting, highly talented and experienced designer – to our design studio.

Joanna has over 20 years’ experience in designing woven fabrics for home furnishings, and specifically, Jacquard fabric. We’re really looking forward to seeing how her creative talents will bring new inspiration to the designs of our hospitality carpets.

Having graduated in 1999 with a Bsc (Hons) degree in Textile Design & Design Management with a 2:1 classification from the University of Manchester, she has continued to build upon her knowledge and design capabilities. Joanna is particularly interested in the technical side of textiles including how they are constructed and produced.

Expressing her creativity through the medium of textile design is a real passion of Joanna’s. She is inspired by the world around her from nature and travel to architecture.

“By experiencing new cultures and exploring new places, I find that I have a constant source of inspiration with endless potential” she reveals. “Regular visits to design and trend events both in the UK and Europe enable me to create exciting new collections,”

Joanna loves impressionism, contemporary art and the use of vibrant colours. We’re really excited to see how her influences, enthusiasm and creativity enhance the design output of our already strong design team.
