Not only has the service that we have received been first rate, but the level of communication and exposure we had from Designers' Data has been nothing short of first class!' Jack Glennon, Sales & Marketing Manager, Jan Cavelle Furniture.

' As a flourishing young business without a huge budget for advertising, I have found showcasing my designs in Designers' Data to be an extremely cost effective way of reaching a niche market of leading architects and interior designers. I have had a fantastic response both in the ammount and calibre of enquiries received and am currently working on a number of prestigious commissions for hotels in the U.K. and internationally as a direct result of clients seeing To Grace in Designers' Data.' Natasha Webb, MD, To Grace.

"Gilkicker Ltd wanted to gain targeted additional exposure for our newly launched Light 'n' Shade product and commenced discussions with Ilex initially with regard to Landscape Update magazine. As a consequence of further discussions with Ilex it became evident that there were further opportunities available to us with the Designers' Data publication. We have been very pleased with the responses that we have received in quantity but more importantly in quality. It has been an easy non bureaucratic and pleasant experience dealing with the Ilex team and one that we hope continues."
