Conor Daly is a recent creative graduate from the Watford advertising course. When he came down to see us, he showed us work we loved and impressed with his attitude and approach. He's also a really nice bloke and he's written us a blog about his experiences with us as an intern in Brighton.  I am a recent graduate looking to start a career in advertising. In looking for internships I was lucky enough to be invited

We are delighted to have won an award for Best Radio Campaign at the Travel Marketing Awards last night, for our Kuoni campaign work. And we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Kuoni for winning Marketing Team of the Year at the same event – a much-deserved accolade. For their 2017-18 turn of year campaign, we developed an integrated campaign that was all about driving customers to the network of Kuoni shops around the country, using

I am proud of our record of employing strong independent people, some of whom arrived with their own very unique characteristics and some who simply didn’t know who they were, but found a place to grow and nurture in the melting pot that is our world here at Designate. As we approach International Women’s Day I am bloody happy that I can comfortably say nobody in our history has been employed based on their race, gender,

Currently 2.2 billion people are consuming content on Facebook every month and there are 1 billion active accounts on instagram.

It's that special day today, so we thought we'd mark the occasion by sharing five things that we have loved this week. Hope you love them too. 1. Morrisons Rainbow Roses - to be given to anyone by anyone This Valentine’s Morrisons have teamed up with The Albert Kennedy Trust, a LGBTQ+ youth homeless charity, to produce a unique multi-coloured rainbow rose.  50p per rose sold will be donated to the charity which provides support and safe homes to young

Making a difference… to Brighton At Designate our work goes out with the stamp ‘made in Brighton’ on it.  We’re proud of our city and we try to play an active role in it. Some of you may remember a certain take-over of Brighton Pier in celebration of our 25thBirthday, where we able to raise over £2000 for the YMCA to provide support to homeless 16-24-year olds in the city.   But we didn’t stop there. At Christmas, we normally find

We're looking for a Senior Designer to join our team. You'll have several years of agency experience under your belt and be as happy concepting ideas, on your own or as part of a team, as you are finessing layouts. You'll be working on wide variety of briefs for seriously big brands that could go from designing advertising campaigns and brand identity to brochure design, logo creation and website design. You'll be passionate about your craft and confident in presenting work.

When you look at law firms' websites, they're frequently much of a muchness. Stock style, stock fonts and a whole world of stock photography. If you're lucky, you may even land on a 3D rotating world on their home page. Which is why when we met with our new client asb law, we got excited.  Designate hasn’t had much experience working with law firms specifically, but our approach makes us sector agnostic. And asb law have a unique approach

Just last year the agency celebrated reaching the grand old age of 25. Which in itself seems almost unbelievable. And to be reminded that it is now 15 years since we joined the IPA gives equal pause for thought. So ingrained are the principles of professionalism, effectiveness and high standards in the Designate way of thinking and working, that it’s strange to think there was ever a time when we weren’t ‘officially’ flying the flag of best

It’s been a busy year, but 2018 was an exciting one for Designate. We turned 25, we gained some exciting clients, produced award-winning work and picked up a few more team mates along the way. Most importantly, we were able to do a lot of great things for our clients and the community. As we ring in 2019, let’s take a look back at some of our favourite things from the past year. During 2018, we
