It takes much more than a market-leading portfolio of products to make British Ceramic Tile what it is today. We’re a brand that very much has people at its core. We run on hard work, innovation and pride in the work that we do, meaning we’re anything but another faceless corporation. We’ve got key people based across the UK, each strategically placed to best service our customers and work collaboratively.

More than just a tile...

Claire O’Brien

Head of Design
After training in Manchester, completing a BA and MA in printed textiles, Claire worked as a designer for a handful of wallpaper manufacturers, later embarking on a journey in ceramic tiles. She is passionate about surface pattern and understanding the decorative world we live in, constantly researching trends in interiors and building an understanding of which looks and colour palettes are going to be the latest ‘must haves’. Claire works closely with her design team, but also works with Sales and marketing to ensure the most sought after products are developed.

Favourite Range

By the time I have created a range I am already looking for the next best thing so it is hard to have a favourite one. I am however very proud of the quality of our HD ranges. The true test is when you want to touch the tile – that is when a product is both visual and interactive!

When not thinking about tiles, Claire...

I always think about tiles! Some of the best ideas come when you least expect them, but weekends are family time – any activity that takes us outside – whatever the weather.

Claire can normally be found...

In Devon or the Northern Hub. Lots of my time is also spent at trade shows or with customers.
