The company, which was founded in Falmouth by Tess Gendall in 1986, has added a number of new clients to its rosta, including luxury rental company Unique Home Stays and UK holiday park group, Away Resorts.

Gendall said: “These new wins are a terrific boost to the business and we’re delighted to be working with such prominent names. It’s an illustration of how well the business is performing in a tough climate. The success of the agency is in no small part down to our ability to be flexible and bring in the right skills when needed.”

Gendall has received specialist support from the Truro office of chartered accountant Francis Clark on how to respond to an ever-changing market.

Francis Clark partner, Scott Bentley said: “Tess has grown Gendall Design into one of the region’s leading design agencies and its client list speaks for itself. They are a great example of the growing number of Cornwall-based businesses that are operating in the digital sector and really thriving.

“With initiatives such as the expanding superfast broadband rollout, we are seeing creative businesses successfully win work inside and outside of the county. It’s a tough, fast paced industry and we work very closely with Tess to make sure she gets all the advice she needs.”

Gendall added: “We are an agile company now, thanks to the way that we’re working and the support we’ve had from advisors like Scott and the team at Francis Clark. Being the owner of a small company means that I have to wear a lot of hats and I have to take on a lot of roles. Scott is almost our very own financial director within the business, which gives me great confidence in the decisions I make. Having that support is essential really.”
