Business Cornwall: Why was the business founded?

With a mutual love of all things artistic (and good coffee!) and having known each other since school, Design Room emerged over a bottle of wine and a conversation that went something like “wouldn’t it be ace if we could have our own studio one day…” We had both worked in a creative capacity for other small businesses and had a good understanding of their needs (and limitations) and so we set up Design Room in 2010 to offer a range of services with our own personal touch.

Business Cornwall: How does the business compare to competitors in the industry?

There is so much creative talent in Cornwall so it can be tricky to stand out from the crowd. Our strength lies in adding personality to a corporate canvas… we promote individuality and approach every project with originality.
