About Us

Leading Retail Design Agency

Our approach is simple; we believe in working collaboratively with our clients and you will have direct access to the team at all times. Very much an independent agency we have kept the same family feel since Chris, Jon and Tim started D4R 14 years ago. We still work with many of the same brands as we did back then but have picked up some new ones along the way! We work with you from brief to store and provide striking designs, practical development and installation across multi sectors.



Our creatives work across the following design disciplines: Retail Design, Graphics, Branding, Visual Merchandising, POS, Pop-up, Events, Concessions and Branded Spaces.



As well as great design we offer a full turnkey service from Insight, Branding Communication, Multi-Channelled Design, Design Management, Planning & Consents, CAD Design, Prototyping, Sampling and Site Surveys



We provide an assembly and installation service managed by our friendly fitters who ensure the project is brought to life in store. We own and manage storage facilities in addition to our D4R HQ as another service for our clients

The Team

We are 55+ talented people experienced in all aspects of design and implementation.  For over 14 years we have worked across most sectors from Health & Beauty to Fashion & Footwear, Banking to Consumer Electronics.  We help our clients gain commercial success through insight and good design.

You will find us on the outskirts of Leicestershire in a converted farm building in the middle of a field – different from most design agencies we know but we love it as it give us time to think.  Our landscape inspires us to be creative and we stay true to our roots.
