"We started working with Design Relations six months prior to officially launching our product into the UK. Rebecca did amazing work building our brand awareness in the market with her networks and knowledge of the industry. Her attention to detail, communication and planning was always second to none - as well as never being afraid to go above and beyond for us and our brand. We have no hesitation in recommending Design Relations."

Rebecca is mine and 'Michael & George's' most trusted design industry connoisseur. During LDF14 she was a big part of not only introducing us to the London Design scene but to the world, connecting us to the right people and publications. Not only that but she's absolutely lovely to work with.
