The design studio was selected as a finalist and subsequently won the new Design Award category, which recognises extraordinary design work, strategic thinking, and effectiveness for clients, as well as the success of the business.

Two Stories’ co-founders, Morecambe-born Rob Ellis and Bekkie Hull, were interviewed as part of the award’s rigorous judging process, competing with design agencies from across the county for the title.

The team attended the incredible Red Rose Awards ceremony at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens, where they were presented the Design Award by BBC Radio Lancashire presenter Graham Liver and received feedback from the judges that included naming them as “one of the best design agencies in the country”.
