Our History

Throughout the years Designs Signage Solutions Ltd has grown from a sole trader business to a market leader in signage and vehicle branding. We are extremely proud of our history and achievements.  Below you will find our timeline highlighting some important milestones in our history.

1993

The Idea!

After serving an apprenticeship Rob decided to ‘go it alone’ in 1993 providing a ticket writing service for a national DIY chain, originally working remotely from his car providing an onsite service. In 1996 investment was made into vinyl cutting equipment and the first unit location within the Louis Pearlman Centre, Hessle Road also creating the first landline telephone number 221278.
1996

When It All Started

The business grew steadily within the Louis Pearlman Centre ‘starter unit’ but with the inability to apply vehicle graphics inside the move was made to Craven Street North into a larger unit and a shop front presence, a lot of customers new and old remember the company from ‘under the arches’ off Holderness road.
2000

We have an office!

With increase in demand a further move was made to the Citadel Trading Park, this enabled the company to employ the first member of staff and increase the workforce of which a few still remain with the company today. The larger facility provided dedicated areas for manufacture and graphic application assisting in obtaining larger contracts.
2004

We have moved!

After successfully been awarded the contract to supply and install all graphics and signage at the KC Stadium, Hull further expansion was required relocating to Burma Drive. The 5000 sq.ft premise was a key factor in the growth of the company in staffing levels, equipment and workload. Experiencing various sites through expansion the decision
was made to establish a base within the city.
2007

We are bigger now

After research, land was acquired on Sutton Fields to commence the construction of our purpose built premise on Hamburg Road. The business settled in quickly to its new ‘home’ and has continued to grow. 20 years on from 1993 it is of credit to the staff, customers and suppliers which have all played their part in achievements of DeSigns.
2014

Move to innovation drive

In 2014 we moved into our new home on innovation drive. The premises a 10,000 sqft workshop with the latest high tech equipment is a testament of our continuous investment in our facilities and equipment. This purpose built building gives ample space to take in any types of projects and to deliver them efficiently. Our team benefit from a fantastic working environment where we aim to stimulate creativity and togetherness.
