Joanne Cocker is a freelance textile and surface pattern designer based just outside of Manchester in the UK. Joanne has worked in the textile and wallpaper industry for past 14 years and a year and a half ago she decided to take the leap and go freelance. Since then Joanne hasn't looked back and has been lucky enough to work with some great companies in the UK on a freelance & commission basis as well as working on her own designs and establishing her brand 'Jojo Coco Design'. Joanne specialises in creating inspirational and imaginative designs for children, adults and the home and she loves creating stories around her designs. She would love to design a fabric collection and is inspired by nature and the world around her. You can see more of her work online here.
