Manchester City Council
What did we do?
Manchester City Council are responsible for every aspect of life in Manchester - from education, tourism and events to health, social care and communities - plus everything in between. If it goes on in Manchester then the City Council will surely have had some involvement in it.
With such an enormous remit, the Council tend to have a multitude of campaigns running at any one time. Happily, they know that Pixel8 are the ‘go-to’ agency when a creative approach is needed.
We’ve worked on around 35-40 different campaigns for the Council, often creating the campaign concept and logo. As well as applying our graphic design skills, we’ve often helped the Council out by organising print, producing campaign T-shirts, baseball caps and other items of clothing.
We’ve loved working on campaigns such as:
· Love Manchester – Improve it
· Your Manchester – Your Future
· What makes a good Mancunian?
· Get Grubby – Wild About Manchester
· Manchester Anthem and In the City music festivals
· Manchester In Bloom
· Your Rubbish – Your Responsibility
What did we achieve?
Working on these campaigns usually means quick turnarounds and high volumes. It’s not unusual for us to be asked for between 1000 and 20,000 campaign T shirts with a very tight deadline! But we’re responsive enough to be able to manage requests like these and the Council has been consistently happy with the level of service and the quality of the design we give them.
We’d like to think that the logos, concepts and products we’ve produced have gone a long way to ensuring that the campaigns were a huge success. It’s wonderful to have been given the opportunity to make a real difference to these community campaigns, which have ultimately benefited local residents, businesses, families and the environment.
