Naomi Cleaver

Distinguished by a design philosophy that has been described as 'warm, eccentric.....clever, idiosyncratic' Grand Designs Magazine; 'dramatic, witty and just a little bit racy' Elle Decoration, Naomi studied three-dimensional design at Willesden College of Technology and Kingston University. Her first job was with major British design firm, Fitch; her second in the art department of the Hollywood movie, Super Mario Brothers.

On spotting an opportunity to set up a kind of 'dating agency' that introduced new, exciting architecture and design practices to potential clients, including (now) luminaries David Adjaye and Olympic torch designers Barber Osgerby, Naomi established echo design agency, instrumental in the delivery of over 800 projects for clients such as Nike and Bafta, plus charities and many private clients.

While running echo Naomi began presenting prime time television shows, such as Grand Design’s: Trade Secrets (Channel 4) which in turn inspired her to open her own design studio.

Naomi’s category-changing, award-winning design work on iQ Shoreditch student accommodation for Quintain in 2012 established her ability to bring to bear an intelligent and nurturing sense of home to communal living, a sector in which she is now prolific.

Naomi also writes and teaches widely and is the author of The Joy of Home (Conran Octopus).
