Branding agency, Shoot the Moon have relocated to the Northern Quarter to a new 7500 sq. ft workspace after 16 years in Ancoats. The £250k investment forms part of a strategic plan to develop wider creative talent, as well as facilitate collaborative and flexible working between teams and clients.
The space has been designed to aid creativity and collaborative working, with creative, content and photography and video teams working seamlessly across one open plan floor. The team pride themselves on producing engaging content, with the flexibility and agility required by the pacy sectors they work within. The new Manchester space supports this ethos, with plenty of open space as teams come back together in the City Centre.
Phil Marshall, Managing Director comments, “A happy, engaged team is a proactive, enthused team. A great place to work is much more than a physical space. Combine it with flexible working, new technologies and a culture of continual learning and recognition, it comes together to create a positive environment for the team to perform and grow.”
Dan Hough, Head of Creative adds, “We’ve been really enjoying settling in and putting our stamp on the space. Our new coffee shop brand ‘Sadler & Swain’ was born during lockdown from a few conversations around the history of our new building. As creatives it’s important to take inspiration from your surroundings and the new space allows us to think, spark ideas and get together to produce awesome work.”
The agency has also announced future plans to host a series of events in the space, continuing to play an active role in the industry and share knowledge from their specialist teams and visiting thought leaders.
Shoot the Moon’s specialist photography and video team, Eat & Breathe, also have a North West base adjacent to the new Manchester space. Complementing the Leeds City Centre facility, it features new, airy studios and a content production kitchen and is led by specialist food photographer Chloe Warde.
The team works with food, retail and leisure brands including Pets at Home, Lakeland, Stoves, Morrisons and TUI.
