Welcome to The Designers Formation

The only agency in the UK that exclusively
represents theatre designers



It is with immense sadness and a deep sense of shock that we have to announce that our friend and colleague, designer Becs Andrews passed away on 6th January.

Becs made a profound impact with the work she made, something that has been widely commented upon as this terrible news reached the wider theatre and performance design community.

As a close knit group of designers and directors at the agency we support one another as Jill and now Laura guide us through the decisions we make about the work we want to do and Becs was a vital contributor in shaping how we operate.

At the request of Becs’ family, we are handling all tributes to Becs that anyone who knew her professionally would like to make.

If you would like us to pass on condolences or memories of working with Becs, please email Laura laura@designersformation.com or if you would prefer to send a card or message, please mark it for Becs family and post care of The Designers Formation, 29 Boreham Road, London, N22 6SL. Thank you.
