AN award-winning firm of architects have designs on helping Huddersfield Town.

One 17 Design, based at Armitage Bridge, is the latest business to sign on as official club partner for the forthcoming season.

The company was one of more than 40 firms and fans to donate to the Play-Off Final ticket initiative – a pioneering scheme created by Town chairman Dean Hoyle, which raised more than £25,000 and allowed 800 school children to attend the Play-Off Final at Old Trafford.

This season, the One 17 Design brand will feature prominently around the Galpharm Stadium.

The firm has also bought a perimeter board which will be on show throughout the 2011/12 League 1 season.

One17 deal in all aspects of design work, from architecture and project management, to structural and interior design and graphic communication.

The firm has been in practice in Huddersfield since 1960 and two of its three partners are natives of the town.

Town commercial director Sean Jarvis said: “One 17 Design is recognised as an award-winning architect company and like Huddersfield Town is striving to be market leaders within their industry.

“They are a successful Huddersfield-based company who have shown a desire over the last year to be actively involved with the club. I am delighted that they have chosen to join our ‘family’ and become an official partner of the club.”

One 17 Design director Mark Lee said: ““We are all very excited about the partnership; it brings together one of Yorkshire’s top football clubs with Yorkshire’s top architects and designers.”
