The Drum launches voting for its Design Census Peer Poll to establish the most influential design agencies in the UK

Today sees the launch of the final stage of The Drum's Design Census, as agencies are invited to rank their peers from a shortlist of over 100 companies.

The Design Census, which is sponsored by global typographic leaders Monotype, will be published on 19 March and will provide the most comprehensive overview of the UK design industry to date.

In addition to ranking agencies according to their financial performance, and client satisfaction, agencies will be voted for by their peers to determine the most respected companies in the industry.

Independent design practice SomeOne was ranked number one in last year's Design 100 Peer Poll published by The Drum.

Simon Manchipp, strategic executive creative director and co-founder of SomeOne, said: "It’s always interesting to see who’s hot (and who’s not) in the design world. This is a particularly interesting poll as it comes not from awards, income, or sheer size, but from peers. We are comparatively new compared to many on the list so we were surprised to be voted number one. It’s been a privilege to look after the title for a year, and we look forward to seeing who’s next in line."

The Drum is calling agencies to vote for their peers on The Drum website until midnight on Friday 31 January. You can vote using the survey below, or open the survey in a new window here.

Subscribers to The Drum will receive the Design Census as a free supplement in The Drum magazine. Non-subscribers can either subscribe to get the supplement free or can purchase a single copy.
