Baltic Creative puts out brand tender

Michael Hunt

Baltic Creative, the non-profit developer established by Liverpool Vision to deliver business space for creative industries, is looking for a design agency to help improve its branding.

The developer, which is known as a Community Interest Company, said the successful agency will take "a long-term view of the project and its aims producing a suite of marketing collateral to promote the offerings". Baltic Creative said the budget the agency would be working with can extend up to £15,000.

Baltic Creative received £5.2m from a combination of the North West Development Agency and European Regional Development Fund to acquire property in the Baltic Triangle area to the south of Liverpool city centre. The Baltic Creative centre will contain 30,000 sq ft of floorspace in former warehouses and workshops in the historic maritime industrial area. The centre could accommodate 60 firms and is forecast to contribute £1m a year to the Liverpool economy.

This week a new website, commissioned by Liverpool Vision, was launched to give an insight into what the area offers.

Barry McGorry, senior development manager at Vision, said: "As more and more creative industries, arts venues and places to eat, drink and stay emerge in the Baltic Triangle, interest in the area increases so it makes sense to bring this information together in one website."

The area is already home to the relocated Picket live music venue, mixed-use Novas Contemporary Centre and A Foundation art galleries.

  • Companies wishing to express an interest in the brand tender have until 12am on Thursday 20 May. Baltic Creative said it will provide companies selected for interview with £300 towards presentation costs. Call Mark Lawler on 0151 703 2005 for more details.
