MD | David Nieper

The challenge:

Having been established for over 50 years, it is obvious the Nieper family knows how to run a business, their problem lies in being too modest. Our challenge was to:

  • Put the spotlight on David Nieper as a great Made in Britain success story
  • Position David Nieper at the very heart of the fashion manufacturing industry and Made in Britain debate
  • Introduce the company to a brand new audience.

David Nieper is a great example of the very best of great British manufacturing…
