“The quality and amount of work that is being produced by our team is simply amazing.” said J. Banks Design Owner and Principal, Joni Vanderslice, who also received the organization’s Leadership Media Award for her outstanding contribution to promote the profession of Interior Design and the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID)

The 2018 Impact Innovator Award was given to the J. Banks Design Group at the NEXT Conference in Austin, Texas for the firm’s efforts to improve the lives of orphans in Tanzania, Africa, through the Valentine Project. “I would say I’ve gotten more out of it than we’ve given,” said Vanderslice about receiving the 2018 Impact Innovator Award. “You gain so much from these experiences. It’s very much an integral part of our business, giving back. That’s been part of our mission statement from the beginning, but this is taking it to a different level.”

The projects in the J. Banks Design Group’s portfolio have received numerous awards from travel and consumer magazines, such as the Hotel Castello di Casole in Tuscany, Italy, being ranked as Travel + Leisure’s #1 Resort Hotel in Europe and Top 100 Hotels in the 2017 Reader’s Choice Awards. And J. Banks Design received the 2013 Gold Key Award for Best Resort for this project, a Timbers Resort.
