Creative Consultant Anouska Anquetil was previously director of her own successful residential design practice, being named one of the Top 50 Interior Designers in the UK and is a member of the British Institute of Interior Design. As well as having been a finalist for the prestigious IDFX Best Residential Design & Best Newcomer awards.
Before founding her practice she worked with Helen Green on luxury residential developments and David Collins Studio where she focused on hotel and hospitality design, developing concepts for branded environments including emotional ergonomics, value engineering and experience design.
"Design for me has always been an inherent aspect of life. I appreciated from early on the impact design has upon how we experience and interact with our surroundings. This can create great beauty in our lives, even in the smallest ways. This has been the guiding principle of my design work and design philosophy, that I call emotional ergonomics".
Trained in Finance, Branding & Consumer Psychology, she later expanded this skillset through her own practice in Interior Architecture & Design and more recently Experience Design. Anouska is uniquely placed to offer a comprehensive creative consultancy service, from creative concept to market launch. Anouska set up Gilt Studio to offer a select range of consultancy services that capitalise on her extensive experience. She draws upon her broad industry connections collaborating with an extended team of associates dependent upon the needs of each individual project, this gives a fully rounded service with the additional areas of specialism provided as and when required.
Emotional Ergonomics lies at the heart of the studio's design approach. The fundamental principle that intelligent design has a positive emotional uplift on the humans that interact with it. This has become the founding principle of the studio's design philosophy. Creating meaningful and sustainable design goes hand in hand with value engineering, the process of aligning positive design impact with tangible cost efficiencies.
Emotional Ergonomics; the application of a core set of design principles, that promote emotional well being, sustained measurable pleasure and functional optimisation of our environment through, aesthetics, form, function and spatial harmony defines the projects and clients we work with. Our design philosophy can be applied in almost any context, but is most rewarding in socially collaborative schemes, public spaces, work spaces, hotels and design projects that engage large-scale audiences. Alongside key value engineering analysis we can help you create a design scheme that is sustainable, socially impactful and reduces design costs, whilst maintaining architectural and build integrity.
These methodologies in combination with our design and consumer psychology expertise underpin our approach to brand strategy, event curation and communications, creating a fully cohesive vision for the brand through an emotionally intelligent campaign identity, intuitive user experience and cohesive communication of the brands values.
Our aim is to bring these unique methodologies to the arts, culture, design and architecture sectors working with like-minded collaborative clients passionate about improving the daily human experience of the world, be it through intelligent design, authentic brand communication or visionary user experience.
