By Design Portfolio - 28 Sep 2017


At Design Portfolio we are incredibly proud of the work we produce in collaboration with our clients. As the awards season descends upon us, it is time to celebrate and promote the great projects of the year.

As a corporate communications partner supporting a wide variety of clients, we were proud to be a sponsor of the UK Private Business Awards 2017 earlier this month. The Awards recognise the UK's most successful private companies, entrepreneurs and management teams and each year sees the attendance of over 450 entrepreneurs, CEOs, FDs, COOs and management teams from a diverse range of industries, along with their corporate advisers. A great night was had by all and there were some very worthy winners on the night.

From sponsoring awards to receiving awards, this week we were very pleased that our clients Just Eat PLC and ZPG plc were both awarded joint Bronze at the Corporate & Financial Awards in the “Best Printed Report – FTSE 250” category.

This achievement at the sixth annual awards recognises Design Portfolio’s excellence in delivering meaningful and effective corporate reporting, in a particularly competitive and plentiful category.

The Corporate & Financial Awards benchmark communications in the corporate and financial space, an area of business that continues to grow in standard year on year. Held at The Brewery, in Central London, the 2017 event was host to a wide variety of companies and categories.

Judges praised the quality of the entries and the way that companies had thought about their audiences, adapting their style and format to meet differing needs, regulatory standards and best practices.

Andrew Thomas, publishing editor of Communicate magazine, commented: “The quality of the 2017 shortlist and winners meant the competition stepped up another gear from previous years.”

Thomas continued: “Nearly 50% of the FTSE 100 entered this year’s Corporate & Financial Awards highlighting how important financial media relations and corporate communications are to the City and its influencers – the Corporate & Financial Awards continue to demonstrate the importance of benchmarking these achievements.”

We look forward to celebrating more of our clients’ work as the awards season continues and are delighted to be a sponsor at the AIM Awards, on Thursday 12 October.
