Geoff has designed for the floorcoverings industry for over forty years having gained an LSIAD Degree in Surface Pattern Design at Stockport college following five years studies. He gained a wealth of experience here in Kidderminster progressing to become Senior Designer for over six years, before then moving to Belgium as Studio Manager covering all aspects of Print design including screen ordering and production run approval. This is where Geoff also began travelling for the company covering the German and Scandinavian markets and the company’s main market, the UK. Armed with this continental experience after seven years Geoff then relocated back to Somerset in the UK as Design Manager for a large Vinyl and wallcoverings company supplying such diverse markets as Stationery, Nursery and Blinds to co-ordinate with wallcoverings. Geoff then returned to the floorcoverings industry setting up his own design company and began working within rug design for over ten years, designing both for Wall to Wall and Area Rugs mainly for the American and Belgian market where he also travels thus having regular contact with customers at a sales level. Away from work Geoff is a musician and keen badminton player and the proud owner of a vintage Lambretta.
