"We thought long and hard before deciding on Design Inc to manage our creative solutions moving forward. What a fantastic decision it has been. It was important for us to work with a team who ‘got’ what we were trying to achieve. Design Inc have demonstrated true professionalism in taking the time and effort to work with our ideas and help develop them into creative but viable concepts. Further still, they continuously go beyond their duties and help with so many other aspects of our business providing the much needed commercial insights that a company like ours is so dependent on. A very big thank you."

Consumer marketing campaign
Design Inc developed a strongly differentiated personality-based campaign for promotion of the Curries Online main site, social media and for advertising on 3rd party websites. The illustration based ‘curry characters’ are genre challenging within the Indian food sector – these are the Curries Online family. The brand palette of earthy spice colours has been used to provide a warm – to hot and comfortable environment.
