The start of the summer kicked off with some exciting news for Design 4 Retail – we turned 15! And in true D4R style, we celebrated our birthday extravagantly at Hothorpe Hall. But judging by some of the photographs, we definitely chose extravagance over elegance...

Before we delve into the photographs, we’ll add a bit of background to our business for those of you who don't know. Our friendly, creative agency began all those 15 years ago with just directors Tim, Chris and Jon whom still head up the business today. As the company slowly grew to a small team of experienced individuals, D4R began to work with some fantastic clients whom remain part of our portfolio today. And throughout our 15 years in business, our team has grown to over 50 individuals with a real passion for all things retail design, with our portfolio growing wonderfully too. So, what better way to celebrate 15 years of building client relationships, curated beautiful projects and forming some great team relationships than with a D4R Sports Day and a birthday bash?

And it wasn't just a bash for us, it was also in aid of our charity of the year Wishes4Kids! Including a raffle and an auction, everything we raised during our 15th anniversary soiree will go directly to Wishes4Kids - a great Leicestershire charity. 

Here’s a bit of insight into what the day involved (we’ve held back the most embarrassing pictures…)

A note from our directors:

“When Tim first proposed we should form D4R at a family BBQ back in 2003, it was hard to imagine what the next few years would be like. Well, here we are 15 years on – a creative agency, with strong client relationships and an amazing team that has surpassed all of our expectations.

The culture we firmly believe in will always remain at the heart of D4R – here’s to the next 15!”
