We don’t really like to brag, but just so you know, our clients seem to say some very nice things about us…

Bradford Theatres have worked with Design It for over twenty five years, and I personally have worked with them for nearly nine years – it’s comforting to know we’re in good hands and can rely on them to deliver a top class service. I’m always impressed with how they re-energise artwork and their ideas, even after such a long time working with us – and quite often for shows we get on an annual basis.
Design It always deliver on time and to brief, despite some very tight deadlines that we present them with – and always with creativity and a flair that we love; never with any grumbles. Design It have been with us through major re-branding, launches of new projects and schemes and keep delivering time and again – it’s like having our own in-house design team!
Liz Hall, Marketing & Press Manager, Bradford Theatres
Having worked with Design It for over seven years with my last employer, it seemed a natural choice to engage their services when my current employer wanted to rebrand the company and look its brand identity. They spent time at Polyseam getting to know the people, the profile and culture of the company, so when it came to setting the brief, they already had an insight as to what was required.
With a tight schedule, the launch of the new fresh Polyseam look seemed to be a daunting task, but with Design It’s professionalism and experience of rebranding, everything was completed on time for the launch date. Design It’s consistency and quality of work was exceptional, and when Polyseam obtained a new major customer who wanted to launch their own brand goods, there was no doubt as to which company to choose to achieve this – Design It of course.
Meg Nichols, Administration Manager, Polyseam
I’ve worked with Design It for over seven years now, first through work at Northern Ballet and now at the City Varieties and would recommend them to anyone. They’re always incredibly helpful and appear to be able to work miracles with even the quickest turnaround. The work they’ve done has always been of the highest quality and they have a great ability to respond to a brief, whether vague or detailed. I’m torn between recommending them or keeping them a secret so no-one else finds out how good they are!
Amy Dutton, Head of Communications, Leeds Grand Theatre & Opera House
I have worked with the team from Design It for over a decade now, a fact in itself which demonstrates how much they value maintaining client relationships. It’s the nature of our business that deadlines are tight and resources even tighter… yet Design It has never failed to deliver results which more than fulfill the brief. (A recent refresh of the City Varieties brand identity in preparation for post refurbishment re-launch, is a fine example of this creativity!) We have always valued the personal service we receive, promoting a genuinely clear understanding of the client’s aims and objectives and would have no hesitation in recommending Design It to others.
Nev Jopson, Marketing & Publicity Manager, City Varieties Music Hall
Design It has worked closely with Northern Ballet for many years and it’s a relationship we cherish. What has developed is a shorthand, they know our brand very well and we can always rely on them to create designs which are on brand, deliver our message, and to work quickly and efficiently – many times going above and beyond, finding design solutions which we would never have thought possible. We look forward to working with Design It for many years to come.
Laraine Penson, Director of Communications, Northern Ballet
I have worked with the Design It team for over ten years now and have always found their work to be outstanding. As Headteacher at Halifax High I asked the team to come up with a new look for the school’s publicity materials and the excellent design they produced stood the test of time, evolving very effectively when the school was renamed Halifax High at Wellesley Park in 2005. Since then, firstly as an Officer at Calderdale and now as a Headteacher again, I have turned to Design It when needing work of high quality, confident that it will be turned round in good time. The enjoyment the team derive from their work is evident and they offer a personal approach, tailored to meet the customer’s needs.
Jeremy Waxman OBE, Headteacher, Kingsbury High School
Design It has been our design studio of choice ever since our first festival in 2005. Their creative flair, friendly professionalism and endless patience when confronted with yet another list of amendments make Design It a real pleasure to work with. Their pricing structure is very fair – invaluable when you have to work to very tight budgets. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership in the future.
Kathleen Evans, Festival Administrator, Leeds Lieder+
I’ve worked with Design It for many years now and I could not fault them. Their commitment to our work, dedication and constant ability to produce exceptional design no matter how tight our deadline or how limited our budget is amazing. Producing strong, consistent and high-quality design is key to the Northern Ballet brand and we trust Design It completely to help us to achieve this. It genuinely feels as though they are a part of our team. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend them.
Emma Mooney, Communications Manager, Northern Ballet
Ski Independence and Osprey Holidays have worked closely with Design It for the past five years. We find they consistently produce work of the highest possible standard showing exceptional creativity and attention to detail. They seem to have the ability to work to difficult deadlines and the quality of their work is never compromised. Both Ski Independence and Osprey Holidays have experienced exceptional growth in recent years, which has co-incided with our relationship with Design It. I am in no doubt our continued success is in part due to their contribution.
Michael Bennett, Managing Director, Osprey Holidays
Eureka! have been working with Design It since the museum opened in 1992. This time alone testifies to how happy we have been with the service and consistently good quality of design. They are always happy to help and go that extra mile when it really matters and we feel lucky to have a company that we share so much history with, whom we can wholly trust and rely upon.
Gracie Rogers, Senior Marketing Officer, Eureka! The Museum for Children
Design It make life so much easier for us as they always deliver on time, within budget and with a smile on their face! We know we can trust them to produce professional results whatever the brief and that’s why we’ve been a customer for many years.

We always really enjoy working with the lovely team at Design It – they are super creative, speedy in response and hugely reliable – we can always count on them to deliver fantastic creative and we’d be stuck without them!
Dawn Theaker, Senior Marketing Executive, National Railway Museum
I have worked with Design It for over fifteen years. Their valuable experience, reliability and track record of delivering great results has meant that I have continually worked with them across my marketing career. I’ve been running my own business since 2006 and, without question, Design It are at the top of my list for creative design.
Kathryn Widdowson, Director, Serious Marketing
Halifax Choral Society has worked closely with Design It for over a decade, and has benefited immensely from the professionalism and originality of the design work carried out by this studio on our behalf, at very reasonable cost. The portfolio of designs that have built up in this period is impressive. We are happy to continue this professional relationship with Design It and look forward to many more years of fruitful partnership.
Nigel Castledine, Trustee, Halifax Choral Society
Northern Ballet has worked closely with Design It for many years. We have a great working relationship – Design It truly feels like part of the team! We’re very happy in the knowledge that they will always deliver work on time and to a very high standard.
Ruth Burke-Kennedy, Head of Communications, Northern Ballet
We have worked with Design It for many years and their consistently professional approach, imaginative response to developing and implementing material to which our audiences respond so positively, and willingness to work round any challenges we may give them makes this friendly company a delight to work with. Nothing is too much trouble for Design It!
