New Designer – Jo Faulkner
Working as a freelance designer at a textile studio has proved a good opportunity for Jo Faulkner to continue enjoying creative freedom, while operating within a supportive framework where her work is guided into a more commercial market. The freelance life also allows her the time and freedom to pursue other activities. At the moment she is launching some of her surface pattern designs into the notebook and stationery market and has started to sell into shops in Glasgow and London.
Jo came to New Designers 2012 with high expectations and was very impressed by the quality of the work in the competition. She also found it a real eye opener to the textiles industry. “It was easy to feel like a small fish in a huge pond,” she says, “but I received some great feedback from new designers, which allowed me to work out where my designs fitted into the textiles market and opened my eyes to other options available.”
