We are delighted to announce that we have been listed as an Elite agency in The Drum Design Census 2014 being ranked as one of the Top 20 agencies in our category.
The Drum Design Census has evolved from The Drum Design 100 and presents a detailed analysis of the design industry by rating agencies according to several performance indicators – the degree to which each agency satisfies its clients, ratings from peers within the industry and overall financial performance. Only those agencies ranking in the top 20 for all 3 polls achieved Elite status.
For the first time this year agencies were grouped according to their size and number of employees – thereby giving a more accurate comparison of performance. The groups were Over 20 design staff, 10-20 design staff and Under 10 design staff. We achieved Elite status in the Under 10 category – one of only 3 North West agencies to make the grade.
Jane Hudson, Managing Director at Forever Creative commented: “We were delighted when we heard the news that we had made the Elite Agency list. The Drum have reviewed agencies from across the UK including London and Scotland – so we feel it is a real achievement to be in the top 20.”
The Drum commented: “We have considered every aspect of agency performance to put together this year’s Design Census and feel it depicts the most accurate representation achieved to date of the UK’s design sector. The Elite listing in particular allowed us to focus in on the 60 agencies achieving an exceptional level of performance in all 3 polls.”
