Sketch celebrates 10 years in business!

28 Feb 2017  |  People  |  News

Sketch Studios is marking a decade in business this month by celebrating its 10th birthday in style.

The team will be holding birthday celebrations next week; raising a glass to toast a successful 10 years and looking ahead to their most positive year to come. 

Sketch was founded on 5th March 2007 by Justin Bass quickly followed by the addition of Jon Odey and Lee Day to the team. Sketch soon grew in numbers and went from strength to strength.

From the first customer, supplier to the life and sciences industries, Lonza, Sketch has gone on to work with a whole host of clients to provide consultancy, design, furniture solutions and moves management. To name a few, loyal clients over the years have included Serco, Motability, John Lewis, Unilever, Cameron, Hiscox, Partnership Assurance, BCD Travel and Herbert Smith Freehills.

Sketch’s independence as a furniture consultant allows the freedom to work with a cross section of the leading manufacturers in the industry, without the restriction of any ties to any firm in particular – something especially significant to clients who can be assured their requirements are always put first. 

Justin stepped down as Managing Director in 2016, but still remains a key figure in the business, sitting on the board and moving in to a director role within the wider Group. Jon Odey, part of the Sketch team since the very early days, was appointed MD last year and under his leadership the team continues grow and develop.

Sketch has had the privilege of working with and forming great relationships with architectural practices over the last 5 years and looks forward to continuing this in the future. Sketch launched its RIBA accredited CPD programme in 2016 with a WELL Building seminar and is delighted to announce further CPDs planned for 2017 include a Co-Working Experience, and presentations on Acoustics and Technology in the Workplace.

Jon Odey, Sketch Managing Director, said: “I’d like to thank everyone in Sketch for their fantastic work over the last decade. We have had a remarkable 10 years, and our people really make Sketch what it is. 

“It’s especially exciting for us this year as we take on two of our biggest client accounts so far. We have signed long-term contracts with Deloitte and Arm, and we look forward to a great future and many more years of success ahead for Sketch.”
