Design Week Top 100: Designed for Success

December 21, 2018

Design Week released its Top 100 Consultancy Survey and we’re proud to announce Fifteen has made the coveted list. This definitive ranking recognises the most successful design businesses in the industry. 2018-2019 has been an interesting year for design and Design Week’s job had not been made easier by a litany of stellar design agencies.

The Top 100 has run for more than two decades and remains a mainstay of ranking market intelligence, strategy, financial health, headcount and fee income per head. With an industry worth over £75 billion annually, Design Week has worked tirelessly to curate a list of the very best design agencies.

Researching and determining this list is a feat in itself with over 370 hours across Design Week’s research, editorial and production teams. What’s more this list, unlike others, is independently audited by Kingston Smith making it a trusted resource.

At Fifteen, we consider ourselves very lucky to be part of this hallowed list and can look back on some amazing campaigns. From full website builds to brand, packaging, and exhibition design our dynamic design team has taken every project in their stride and created some breathtaking work.

Tinplate Brochure

One of the highlights has been working on Tinplate’s new brand and website. This cohesive project blended physical with the digital to create designs that married their rich family tradition with their bright future.

Runarchy Brochure

We also worked with Runarchy on some impressive brochures to promote their renegade running aesthetic. This exciting clothing brand pushes the boundaries of sports design and we had a great time working with them.

On the branding front, we worked with, data specialists,  JTA to help them put their best foot forward with an emotive brand that is adaptable across several channels. Such was the success of this brand launch that there is a new website in the works to unify their digital image.


Our digital portfolio has grown this year with a custom site for Ecova. These masters of data analysis needed a site that conveyed their genius and outside-the-box thinking. To this end, we put together a clean, professional site with subtle binary imagery and a colour palette that highlights growth and innovation.

Ogre 365 website

Another standout performer has been the work we’ve done on Ogre. We condensed their brand into a unified image with a unique orange palette and a responsive site that accurately portrays their offering.

We could go on, with the likes of Innes England, Merlin, Sygnature and Yu Energy to name a few. Instead, we’re looking forward to the future, with new campaigns in 2019 we’re excited at the blank canvas that awaits us.
