New Team Member

Meet the new boy, he’s a jolly soul who has a certain ‘jingle’ to his walk. Working on a temporary contract he’s not going to be around too long but while he is we’re all enjoying his work.

24 and Counting

Yes; it’s 24 years this very month since RfD started trading, and wow, how times have changed. The year a young and less follicly challenged Joseph Essex began trading, John Major was Prime Minister, and over our 24 year history the painstaking art of manual typesetting has been replaced by the ease and finesse of the Apple Mac. The arrival of the Internet continues to accelerate the pace of the industry to ever dizzying speeds. Gone are the days of mailing hardcopy proofs, as now, digital PDFs enable jobs to be turned around the very same day…

…and breathe. We’re still here, enjoying what we do more than ever, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate our birthday than working with you!

The team ‘Go Ape’

We recently ventured outside the relative safety of our office to partake in a ‘Go Ape’ adventure at Grizedale forest in the Lakes. The two hour ordeal involved pushing our fear of heights to their very limits, as we negotiated zip wires, Tarzan swings and rope ladders suspended high above the forest floor. Despite occasional tears from Essex and Shutty’s quivering lip, a great time was actually had by all. Hopefully, the chosen activity next time will be a little more grounded.



University of the Year 2017

As the longest standing design agency on the University of Leeds framework, we are naturally delighted that the University have been awarded University of the Year 2017 by The Times and The Sunday Times’ Good University Guide. Congratulations are very much in order and we look forward to continuing to work closely with Leeds as they build on their success.


Moving up in the world, well, upstairs.

In search of more rarified air we have relocated to the upper floor of Register House. Our elevated quarters now feature swish new standing desks as part of an on-going office health drive, which management assures us can only boost creativity. Hmm…

Black History Month – Tower Hamlets

Tower Hamlets celebrated Black History Month throughout October with a series of engaging events including music, theatre, films, exhibitions and literature, and we were thrilled to be a part of it. The RfD team produced a range of campaign materials promoting the events within the culturally rich and diverse borough.
