“I am very proud of the Design Incorporated team’s achievements, loyalty and commitment. As we reached our 25 year milestone, we can all be proud of our sustained performance, creative awards and becoming leading specialists in a number of key B2B sectors. We would like to thank all our clients, team members and associates – both past and present for making this all possible.
As we moved past the challenges of the pandemic it became clear that the best way to regain momentum, grow and move forward would be to become part of a larger group where a quantum leap in capacity (in digital-coding and project management particularly) could be provided to our clients ‘overnight’ so to speak. The plan being that by joining a larger company myself and Frank would be better supported in the day to day running of the client projects with more account handling back-up and systems. This would also allow us to look more strategically at clients’ businesses adding ‘quality time’ if you like, value and oversight. So we started to tentatively put feelers out to the industry. These sort of situations requiring a strong match in aspirations, practicalities and chemistry, of course.
Steve Wilson approached us mid-2022 and it was quickly obvious that there were synergies and shared values. Our skill strengths dovetailed neatly as Moore-Wilson were looking to bolster their branding and diversify their design offering to provide more ongoing and campaign support in addition to website builds. Whilst at Design Inc, we were looking for more digital resources and support capacity.
Moore-Wilson impressed me with the number of extensive, multi-functioning and business-critical websites that they have designed, built and support for some enviable clients. We are confident this increased capacity, digital expertise and financial robustness will provide some benefit to each and every Design Inc client in the future.”
