Top 100 deadline – extended

We’re giving you an extra week to get your figures over and enter the Design Week Top 100, which is a ranking of the UK’s most successful design businesses.


We’re happy to announce that the Design Week Top 100 deadline has been pushed back until 3 September, so that you all have a chance to get your figures over.

The Design Week Top 100 – which you can enter here – provides a detailed and holistic analysis of the financial state of the design industry.

It ranks the 100 most successful independent UK design businesses, across all sectors based on total fee income, while also spotlighting, growth, turnover, projections and staffing levels.

The Design Week Top 100 provides an annual benchmark of the design industry’s financial performance, ranking UK design consultancies according to their fee-income.

Last year’s Top 100 survey saw returning consultancies recording a 2% increase in fee-income. You can have a peek at the positions in last year’s report here.

Celebrate financial success

The Top 100 is a celebration of the design industry’s financial success, and we want to share your consultancy’s achievements.

All figures in the Design Week Top 100 will be independently audited by accountants Kingston Smith. In addition we will provide our own analysis of the results, which will be published in October as a purchasable market intelligence report.

Overall the Top 100 provides a wholly balanced and objective snapshot of the industry’s financial performance.

Enter now

The 2018 Top 100 will be based on design consultancies’ results from the financial year – April 2017-March 2018 – and the survey is open to all UK consultancies, including those with offices overseas.

You can enter the Design Week Top 100 using the online form here. You’ll be able to save the form as you go, but to make it easier please make sure you have all your financial data ready, as well as the details of an auditor at your consultancy who will be able to verify your statement.

The deadline for entries is 3 September. It is free to enter the Design Week Top 100.
