Sketch Series: Rosanna Campbell
This month’s Sketch Series on Design Insider celebrates the work of Newmor’s recent product launch: the Seminato. We spoke with Rosanna Campbell, Head of Product and Creative Development, who discusses the company and design process.

We’re a family run company and all of our products are designed and manufactured in Wales. We have offices in the UK, Poland, Germany and Dubai, further supported by an international distributor network operating in over 80m countries worldwide.”
What was the design process behind the product are you sketching?
“Seminato was inspired by the understated elegance of terrazzo. We wanted to capture the twinkling quartz but also create a timeless design staple. This was achieved by using soft geometric forms and a versatile texture which enhances the relationship between matte and shine.”
Which part of the design process did you enjoy the most? Why?
“My favourite part of the process is when the design gets to the sample stage. It’s really exciting seeing it come to life and experimenting with colour, metallic pigments and embosses. We have a wonderful sample department who use a mini embosser to produce samples that reflect as closely as possible what we will achieve in production.”
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS: Seminato – An elegant take on the terrazzo trend, soft mineral tones and a flecked metallic print. Seminato is supplied on 130cm wide by 30m rolls.
