This quote perfectly illustrates Plot Design’s philosophy.  We believe in spaces that look beautiful but also work hard to meet the functional needs of the client. We’re also big believers in the ‘Less is more’ theory of interior design. We thank our many years of employment at IKEA for our design ethics and principles.

“Claire from Plot Design helped us with our latest project where we converted an old Victorian office building to five luxurious apartments. She created the concept board, completed all the technical design drawings & schedule of finishes for all rooms as well as sourcing furniture & staging the apartments. From day one, her pricing structure has been professional, transparent, reasonable & easy to understand. Throughout the project Claire kept me updated with the costs & budget variance, which is extremely helpful with budget control. Most importantly she was able to work with our architect and building team to ensure smooth execution of the design concept. The end result was five stunning apartments. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

“Claire Tomlinson is an excellent team player, takes responsibility for her decisions, has a great eye for detail and an ability to solve complex problems in spatial planning. She works well under pressure, forms good relationships and communicates effectively at any level of organisation. I have no hesitation in recommending Claire.”

“Claire Tomlinson from Plot Design was recommended by a colleague for her work with SketchUp. I was wanting to produce a 3D model of the exterior Coronation Street set. This was done in 2 stages and Claire was brilliant – the model is extremely detailed and I am delighted with it. Claire worked to tight deadlines on both projects and did an exceptional job. Nothing was too much trouble and I would not hesitate to get her back in for any future projects!”

“Unite Students underwent a national rebrand in 2014, as part of this rebrand the Estates Department were tasked with rebranding and remodelling common room and reception areas across the portfolio of 120 sites. Claire from Plot Design was bought in as part of a team of 4 designers to survey and design the properties. Claire was a joy to work with and as our brand was new had to adapt the designs at short notice which Claire did on many occasions within extremely tight deadlines. Claire’s designs are extremely detailed which helped greatly with our tendering and also the actual works on site. I would recommend Claire for any design work as she really has been a pleasure to work with and needs little direction to create a fantastic design.”
