About Studio Laycock

Alice Laycock: Writer & Designer

I am a former student of both The Interior Design Institute and Norwich University of the Arts.  At NUA, I also contributed to our university  magazine Storehouse. During my third and final year of my undergraduate study, I also became a content writer for Out & Out furniture, completing a consistent amount of articles for their website every month, alongside my studies.


The sum of my academic education and formative experiences, both at university and elsewhere, has led me to pursue a career in design journalism and communications. I envisage this will will span both my specialism in interior design and architecture, as well as other creative disciplines, and across multiple media formats, tones, lengths, and target readerships.
