We are thrilled to announce that we have been shortlisted for a prestigious UK Company Culture Award in the Next Generation Initiative category for our development programme, ‘ROOTED IN DESIGN: Nurturing Talent, Cultivating Careers’. This recognition highlights our commitment to fostering talent within our industry and creating a vibrant culture of growth.


As a creative studio specialising in designing retail and leisure environments for renowned UK and global brands, ROOTED IN DESIGN aims to produce a generation of designers equipped with the skills and experience needed to deliver high-quality designs that exceed our clients’ expectations. This comprehensive development programme carves out fulfilling career pathways for up-and-coming designers, taking them to the very top of their game! ROOTED IN DESIGN is a commitment to our team’s professional growth and success, and by offering tailored training, peer-to-peer mentoring, and transparent career progression pathways, we empower our employees to strive in their careers.

What this means for our clients and the industry as a whole

Through our programme, we raise industry standards by encouraging critical thinking and a strategic approach to design that aligns with our clients’ growth goals. This commitment to excellence sets new benchmarks in the industries we serve, providing our clients with a competitive edge! But ROOTED IN DESIGN is not just about benefiting a few; it is about making a positive impact on the industry as a whole. By actively engaging with universities and schools, we inspire and mentor the next generation of designers, breaking down barriers to entry and creating an endless cycle of mentorship and inspiration.

Why our initiative stands out

Despite being a small design studio, Briggs Hillier proudly leads the way with a development initiative that rivals those of larger corporations. What sets us apart is our unwavering commitment to nurturing talent – a responsibility often overlooked in our industry. Our initiative goes beyond short-term career wins; it is a dedication to providing continuous support for the long-term success of our industry, serving as a sustainable model for other companies to follow. We are honoured to be recognised for our efforts and look forward to continuing our mission of nurturing talent, cultivating careers, and shaping the future of design. Thank you to the UK Company Culture Awards for this incredible recognition, and congratulations to all the other nominees.

“I am really proud that we have been nominated for the Next Generation Initiative award! I couldn’t imagine Briggs Hillier not providing development opportunities and career pathways in the way that we do. It’s natural for us to support our designers’ career ambitions and at the end of it all, their success is OUR success.” – Lucy Moore, Operations Manager and Programme Leader at Briggs Hillier
