The Romo Award for Innovation in Design and Colour


Georgia Dunn

Greek Islands

Arts University Bournemouth


£500 cash and a paid internship for up to 6 months in the Romo, Villa Nova or Black Edition design studios, giving first-hand, practical experience of working in the creative hub of a leading textile design house.

Please note – the placement is offered at our head office studios in Nottinghamshire for a minimum of 4 weeks, maximum of 6 months. It will be arranged in conjunction with the prize winner for a time that is mutually agreeable to both Romo and the prize winner.


The combination of Georgia’s bold yet sophisticated use of colour and her energetic portfolio of design work drew us in straight away. Her diverse range of design application is innovative and well considered.



The award will be given to a textile design graduate with a sophisticated sense of colour who demonstrates an exceptionally creative and innovative approach to design.
