what they say

I just want to say that yet again your team has done a fantastic job with our Annual Report – we do appreciate how accommodating you are with deadlines and working around our ever changing timetables

Kate Partridge

Group Financial Controller, Management Consulting Group plc

Victrex has been evolving over recent years. As we move from our historic position of a world leading manufacturer and seller of polymers, to a global solutions provider for our major global customers, our messaging need and positioning has changed. Design Portfolio team has supported us on this journey, helping us develop our Annual Report into a more simplified, focused and compelling story. Feedback on our corporate story has significantly improved and we have been grateful for Design Portfolio's flexibility, professionalism and support throughout our recent projects.

Andrew Hanson

Head of Investor Relations & Communications Victrex plc

Volution Group recently floated on the London Stock Exchange, and we were thrown straight into the production of our first annual report. DP impressed us with the design, proofing, print and distribution of our maiden report. They led us through the process and added value when it came to proactive proofreading, which was of an extremely high standard and ensured the end product looked good and was accurate. We would have no hesitation in recommending DP to other companies.

Michael Anscombe

Company Secretary, Volution Group plc

The Design Portfolio team has worked on our annual report since 2007. Our deadlines have historically always been challenging to meet and we continue to be grateful for Design Portfolio’s flexibility throughout each project, which has enabled us to always meet the final deadline. I have been asked a few times to recommend a specialist in annual reports and I have always recommended Design Portfolio without hesitation. I will certainly continue to do so in future.

John Pendergast

Divisional Director, SANNE (on behalf of Volta Finance Limited)

Rosslyn Data Technologies recently floated on AIM and 30 April 2014 was our first year end as a public company. Design Portfolio managed the design, proofing, print and distribution of our maiden annual report and the service we received was second to none. We have been really impressed with Design Portfolio and our dedicated account handler was a wonderful ambassador for the company. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other listed companies.

Francis Reid

Chief Financial Officer, Rosslyn Data Technologies plc

We have recently completed our second annual report with the help and advice of Design Portfolio. Once again, we were extremely happy with the end product and enjoyed working with the team. Competent and professional, whilst friendly and fun to work with! We look forward to working with them again next year.

Kerry Becker

IR Manager, Carphone Warehouse Group plc

DP has been fantastic in supporting us consistently for a number of years. The team always work diligently and with great professionalism to deliver our annual report and website re-launch on time and to a very high standard. This year's project was once again well-managed, in line with our tight reporting deadline. The high standard of the design, quality of photography and overall attention to detail has produced an end result with which we are extremely pleased.

Laura Bright

Group Accountant, NWF Group plc

(US-based) Aqua Bounty has worked with DP for 5 years, each year tailoring our reports to match the company’s development, to deliver the right messages and, most importantly, to meet our shareholders’ expectations. We continue to find DP creative, hard-working and responsive. The team is a pleasure to work with.

David Frank

It’s rare that you find an agency as dedicated as Design Portfolio. Not only are they experts in the latest best practice, they are extremely proactive in the writing, designing and delivery of our annual report. Most importantly for us, they keep cheerful no matter how many changes we throw at them – they are a delight to work with.
