Symposium Design Studio has built up international acclaim for creating inspired commercial designs.

Set up by Joanne Ganley-Yates and partner Sidney Yates in 2012, Symposium has expanded into markets in Europe, Middle East, US and Asia.

Over the past 25 years, Joanne has formed a deep-rooted connection to the wallpaper and wall art industries. Formally the Creative Director at Arthouse, for 8 years and more recently a consultant stylist and design manager for Grandeco.

"I have built a vast knowledge of the wallpaper industry. having designed and created many products which have had commercial success for high street brands such as B&Q, Next and Homebase. Also, I am fundamental in designing and managing the production of many global selling pattern books."

From this experience we combine the exclusivity of being a small team with a diverse handwriting to create a commercial but individual collection for Symposium Design.
