About Dimensions Displays

About Dimensions Displays – a portable display stands manufacturer.

Where it all started

Founded by architect Michael Dowd in the mid 1990′s, we started life designing and manufacturing large bespoke banner displays for signs and exhibitions. Clients back then included; British Museum, Waitrose, British Council, Royal Armouries,  Somerset House and the Serpentine Gallery. During this period, Robbie Ewing joined to help Michael with project management and graphic production on these large architectural projects.

New Displays for a New Millennium

It was also during this time that the D4 Display system was developed and Dimensions became a exhibition display stands manufacturer.  The D4 Display was designed to display smaller portable banners for marketing purposes. One very large job to provide over 2400 D4 units to Arthur Anderson accountants around the millennium got the ball rolling. To fulfil this large order, we moved from our shared office in Euston to a new railway arch workshop in Camden. We stayed in north London until 2011 until we moved to our current location in south London.

Expanding the Product Range

Following the success of the D4 Banner Display, Michael designed a sister product to the banner display, the D3 Display system. The new system was launched in 2005 and expanded our range display products to include brochure displays, poster holders and light boxes.

Life Moves On

Michael retired in 2011 and the company is now run by Robbie Ewing. He trained as woven textile designer, completing his MA at Central St Martins in 1992. The bright lights of London have kept him here since then. He is also a semi professional photographer and carries out occasional photography commissions. You can see more of his work on his photography website.

How We Work

Our design background ensures we have a keen eye for detail, and high standards when it comes to large format printing used on our exhibition display stands. Accustomed to tight deadlines, we can turn around most small projects in 2 – 5 working days from receipt of artwork.
