CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“The TDS approach to the clients could not be better. They do their best in trying to understand the real clients´ necessity and objectives without any sort of prejudgment. They see themselves as part of the team who are responsible to understand our vision and transform it in a feasible project. You guys are so good in putting the maximum effort to understand your clients need that you become really the second part of our brains.”

Sandro Fernandes - CEO, Grupo AltaVista Alimentos, Formerly Chief Commercial Officer, RIOgaleão Airport

Adil Raïhani - Partner, The Blueprint Partnership, Formerly Director Sales & Operations Europe The Nuance group AG

Gerry Crawford - Chief Operating Officer, Aer Rianta International, Formerly Head of Retail, DAA

“I have been positively impressed by the work of The Design Solution specifically for their commercial approach, planning and design abilities as well as their overall practical approach to all projects. Their experience of working in many different worldwide markets has added value, especially in high passenger flow areas where penetration and conversion are key aspects of our business. The diversity of sites has called for creative and innovative solutions in terms of aesthetic design and to integrate key brands and promotional sites. These challenges have been professionally addressed with flair and originality. The Design Solution understand the need for a commercial approach in order to optimise our commercial objectives.”

Andrea Belardini - CEO Asia, Middle East and Australia, Dufry Group

“The Design Solution carried out all the retail planning and design of the International & Domestic Departures Lounges, including carrying out approvals for 280 tenants. Despite a very tight timescale there are some stunning retail designs mainly due to The Design Solution’s hard work to lift the quality from early submissions to the finished product who guided the retailers and food & beverage operators with little airport experience into producing world class designs that are a credit to our terminal.”

Romy Juneja - Managing partner, Mindflow partners, Formerly CCO, Delhi International Airport
