Leonard Design Architects is an award-winning architectural practice headquartered in Nottingham and with three further offices in London, Kuala Lumpur and Sydney, Australia. Involved in projects all over the world the practice works across a range of sectors including retail, residential, mixed-use developments and master-planning schemes. Cartwright provides retained PR support.


We worked with the team at Leonard Design to devise a long-term media relations strategy aimed at delivering three key objectives: raising the firm’s profile as an international player with specialist expertise, take a sector-specific approach and highlight its areas of strength and to showcase key projects.

Using a combination of media relations tactics – along with creating a collection of videos – our campaign focussed on building relationships with target media locally, regionally, nationally and internationally to put the spotlight on Leonard, its projects and expertise.


Cartwright has been retained to deliver ongoing PR and content support for Leonard Design, with our remit extending further with additional commissions for video and copywriting services.

The firm’s media profile has increased significantly and key senior team members now have excellent relationships with key journalists.
