David Burton | Fujifilm | Business Director
“This was the first time we worked with Realise and we’re delighted we
selected them as our design partner. The depth of what they brought,
particularly in ensuring it was manufactured as we needed, far outstripped
our expectations of what ‘the designers do’. The end to end process they
took us through has become known as ‘the Realise Factor’ round here!”
Shaun Horan | SRT Marine | Head of Development
“Realise Design are an outstanding design agency. We have worked with them for many years on a variety of marine projects.
They are highly competent, have a friendly approachable team, and work in a flexible and organised manner.
I would 100% recommend Realise.”
Alex Smith | Airhead | Co-Founder
“We worked with Realise Design to create the Red Dot Award winning Airhead pollution mask. The Realise team were outstanding
from start to finish, providing excellent ideas, guidance and expertise, right through to the manufacture of the product.
Not only are they a highly skilled group but also a great bunch of people to work with.”
James Wedlock | JM Plumbing & Heating | Co-Founder
“We have worked with Realise over the past three years on two great projects. Coming from a construction background
we were unfamiliar with product design, yet Realise have guided us through the entire process. They are a fantastic team of talented
individuals and provide a well organised service that has been a pleasure to be a part of..”
Kevin Jenner | Fujifilm | Marketing Manager
“In my capacity as marketing manager at Fujifilm Graphics I have worked with the team at Realise over
several years on a number of projects. The Realise team have been instrumental in a total redesign of our industrial
printer portfolio. From zero industry knowledge they immersed themselves in the world of print studying every aspect
of printer application and usage. Their insight has resulted in a ground-breaking series of printers with
ergonomic design at its core. I very much look forward to continuing our relationship into the future.
And finally, on personal level, they’re a really decent bunch of people to work with!!”
Matthew Gladstone | Cammotion | Managing Director
“Andrew and his team were incredibly supportive and helpful in getting the ROC2X developed and made. They immediately
understood my brief and worked closely with us through all the detailed iterations to fit so much into such a compact space,
getting all the additional functionality working. And the portable control desk is still one of the most lovely things
to handle that we’ve ever worked with! People love it when they pick it up!”
Thomas Bell | Close Air Solutions | Technical Director
“Working with Realise was a pleasure. They made an effort to ensure that they understood our requirements properly.
The review processes were very useful in assuring us that our requirements would be met. Where there were options to choose from,
the Realise team explained very well the advantages and disadvantages of each option.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone for a bespoke design.”
Mike Debens | Droneliner | Design Director
“We’re designing next-generation air freighters called Droneliners. Realise fleshed-out our engineering
skeletons, turning line drawings into something investors were able to see in the flesh.
Realise literally gave the product a face – and they did the job beautifully.”
Warren Lester | SRT Marine | Senior Project Manager
“Some of the best industrial designers I’ve worked with. Never satisfied with just doing what
is asked of them but proactively going the extra mile to deliver winning products.”
“Realise Design have been a fantastic team to work with over the last year. A brilliant group of industrial designers
who helped us achieve a very successful launch of our brand and product (RAD Shock-mount).
We couldn’t be more proud of our product and grateful to the whole team!”
Harry Young | Airhead | Co-Founder
“Excellent team to work with – they make the whole process smooth and straightforward. Clear communication,
outstanding design expertise, great people. We won a Red Dot award for the Airhead pollution mask developed with Realise,
so the results speak for themselves. Recommended!”

from all walks of life.
