The Team

Alisa Newey


Alisa’s creative career has spanned Architecture, Industrial Design and Fashion before settling into the exploration of retail and interior spaces. Taking the leap from working within Architecture to her own small business, Alisa has developed an affinity with other owners of small to medium businesses.

Combining her background in design and her knowledge and interest in business, Alisa has established herself as an expert in customer focused design. Her business, Re:New Design specialises in Retail and Hospitality Design and working with local business owners to create profitable, functional and remarkable businesses.

Alisa strongly believes that effective design needs to contribute to the productivity of your business. She says, “Design to me is more than just a colour or aesthetic, it is about close listening to truly understand the needs and priorities of the business and designing creative solutions for those needs.”

She is a strategic thinker with a passion for business which allows her to understand the challenges and day to day operation of a business. She loves working closely with her clients to help them transform their business from bland to memorable.

Daniel began his working career in the cabinetmaking and wood machining industry. It was programming and operating a CNC router that further developed his interest in CAD Drafting.

Daniel’s drafting career has seen him work primarily as an Architectural Draftsperson. He has documented a variety of projects including buildings for Health, Education and Residential purposes.

Daniel has been working with Renew Design since October 2014. While he admits his strengths lie more on the technical side, he thinks it’s great being able to see projects go from concept and on paper through to reality. What he likes most though is that at Renew Design he can utilise both his Revit drafting skills with his former background in joinery.
