Here’s a little look back and some of the things that have made 2023 at Morgans Consult so special.
It’s been quite a year for everyone at Morgans Consult. The projects we’ve delivered, the clients we’ve worked with, the people we’ve welcomed to the business, the relationships we’ve developed and the commitments we’ve made to the environment and our local community.
New Year, New Home!
In July, we announced our expansion into a new Morgans Consult HQ at Cambria House on North Road, Cardiff. These prestigious new premises, previously the iconic Aston Martin dealership, will become the new home of Morgans Consult, Dipec and Andco Studio.
Work has been progressing on a full refurb of the building, and we’re excited to welcome our colleagues from across the MS-Group family for a tour in the new year.
11 New Faces!
We’ve added 12 new faces to the Morgans Consult and Andco Studio teams in 2023. We’ve strengthened our services with new talent in sales, design, marketing, production, and installation. Tim, Tom, Alan, Mia, Pete, Jon, Lois, Josh, James, Anthony, Joe… we’re delighted to have you on board!
7002 Trees Planted on Behalf of Our Clients
In 2023, we’ve committed to planting 7002 trees on behalf of our clients as part of our ‘Plant a Green Future’ initiative. This initiative gives our most valued clients an opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint every time they spend money with us. So, whenever they come to us to deliver a project, we fund the planting of trees. Spire Healthcare, the RNLI and Paramount Office Interiors were our biggest “planters” in 2023.
Bluebirds! We renewed our Cardiff City FC Sponsorship until 2025!
We renewed our partnership with Cardiff City FC, sponsoring the Morgans Consult Legends Lounge from 2022 until 2025. Morgans Consult have a long-standing relationship with Cardiff City FC, having provided branding and signage solutions for the Club and Cardiff City Stadium since 2012. The Lounge, which has been fully branded by Morgans Consult and features portraits of some of CCFC’s most iconic players, offers a space for us to entertain our valued clients and guests on matchdays.
We Partnered with the FA Wales National League Awards
We partnered with FA Wales on their inaugural National League Awards which celebrates the men’s and women’s domestic game in Wales. Players, staff, sponsors, media and dignitaries came together to celebrate achievements across Welsh leagues. David Morgan presented the award for the final category of the evening, the prestigious “Player of the Season” award.
Andco Studio created the new brand for this and future awards ceremonies, designed all the branding and signage for the black-tie event, with Morgans Consult designing the 24 trophies.
We Delivered Some Exceptional Projects
From sales, design, production and installation, we’ve delivered some exceptional projects in 2023. We installed a state of the art 16 meter digital screen at the refurbished Wales Millennium Centre. We created wayfinding signage for Cadw castles across Wales and Spire Healthcare sites across the UK. We redesigned visitor attractions for the BBC, RNLI, Royal Navy, Welsh Water and Capital Roasters. We designed, produced and installed all branding at the new Cardiff City FC Academy facility. We won 31 tenders, that’s a 56% response-won rate!
The list is endless, great work team!

We’ve Shown Our Commitment to People and the Planet
It’s important to us that we reduce our impact on the environment and that we make positive contributions to wider society. In 2023 we created a 5-point commitment to sustainability that governs how we approach projects, and how we advise solutions for our clients. Whether that’s equipping members of our sales team with electric vehicles, donating off-cuts to local schools and charities, using solar to power our workshop, sourcing environmentally friendly alternatives or funding the planting of trees to offset carbon footprint.
Andco Studio Created New Visual Identity for the Wales National Football Team
In 2023, Andco Studio was appointed by the Football Association of Wales to create a new visual identity for the Wales Women’s Team. We managed 3 photoshoots with the full squad, and created a bold and engaging visual system that would determine how the Women’s team is presented for the coming 2-year qualifying campaign. Andco’s new brand for the team will be seen by football lovers across the world, and is used in stadiums, on TV and online. Wherever the Wales team is being promoted, you’ll see Andco’s work!
Andco Client List
We’ve also worked with a number of other high-profile clients including the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Portsmouth, SGS Ireland, Cardiff Bereavement Services (Part of Cardiff Council), FA Wales National Leagues, RNLI, Cardiff City FC and Coffee #1.
Collaborating Across the Group
We’ve worked closely with other businesses across the MS-Group family in 2023. We collaborated with Popin on a showroom installation for Porsche, on museum display cases and wayfinding systems with Dipec, a series of slate trophies with Stone Sign to name a few.
Case Study: Celebrating 75 Years of Porsche
We already have so many exciting things to look forward to in 2024. From our new home in the heart of Cardiff, we really can’t wait to get started in the new year.
