Surface Design Studio resurfaces as a global brand

Midlands based Surface Design Studio is marking its 10th year and has undergone a complete rebrand to be more representative of its scale and ability.

Now renamed Digital Ceramics Custom Tiles, the company which is part of Digital Ceramics Group has a brand which represents its global portfolio.

Digital Ceramics Custom Tiles has in the past 18 months grown significantly and expanded its customer base internationally. The business which has been the UK’s number one custom tile manufacturer for a decade now works with clients in the leisure, entertainment and attraction industries across the globe including Disney, DreamWorks, McDonalds and Transport for London.

Mark Wood, Director of Digital Ceramics Custom Tiles said: “Proving bespoke tiles to leading brands around the world is an achievement that we’re immensely proud of.

“In 2001, Digital Ceramics was set up to sell machinery, toners and consumables to the ceramic manufacturing industry all over the world.

“In 2011, we were asked by a leading tile manufacturer, to produce a large scale art project for the London 2012 Olympic Stadium, which had over 16,000 30cm individual porcelain tiles, produced with a different image to create a mural. After the success, we set up The Surface Design Studio to offer a custom printing service to artists, interior designers and architects.”

Demand for custom tiles has continued to increase for the past 10 years and it’s very fitting that the business meeting that need is headquartered at the very heart of “The Potteries”.

Digital Ceramics Custom Tiles is further expanding its services to become more accessible meaning it is able to service the vast range of exciting projects which are rolling in. The company has reproduction capabilities across a variety of surfaces including: murals, tiled signage, repeating tile patterns, Pantone and RAL matched glazes, and R9 to R11 anti-slip floor glazes.

Mark added: “This is an exciting time for the group as we’re not only reaching a milestone year but we’re able to drive the business forward at an exciting and global level so the next decade will be an even bigger and better celebration.”

Digital Ceramics Group has been developing key knowledge and expertise of modern ceramic printing technology for 20 years now and has continued to expand its portfolio.

It is one of the only companies in the world to provide a permanent digital ceramic printing solution. The innovative printing capabilities are vast and the group can offer expert printing technology, colour matching services that are compatible with both RAL and Pantone colours, printing equipment and support, ceramic transfers and custom decorative tiles.
