For the seventh consecutive year we have been declared as the UK’s number one product design consultancy by Design Week* magazine in its annual Top 100 Consultancy Survey. The survey charts the annual progress of UK design consultancies across all design disciplines.

‘It has been another incredible year for us at DCA. We have, again, broken most of our performance records, whilst further developing the company. We have had the privilege of working with many great clients on so many exciting projects and won more design awards. On top of this to be ranked as the UK’s number one product design consultancy for the seventh consecutive year is fantastic and a tribute to the talent within each of the skill bases at DCA,’ enthuses Rob Woolston, DCA’s Managing Director and Head of the Medical and Scientific sector.

Across all disciplines in the Top 100, DCA have made an impressive rise to 8th position compared to 10th position last year.

Commenting on the overall results of the survey, Lynda Relph-Knight, Editor, Design Week, writes: ‘This year the table reveals a marked improvement on last year’s figures, with a renewed confidence across disciplines and healthy growth projections’.

In their analysis, 'Kingston Smith W1' partner Amanda Merron and manager Terrence Bourne comment: ‘designers have performed well and the outlook for 2011 looks brighter’.
