United Creatives have been involved in a number of projects in the Ancoats area of Manchester, from brand identities to public consultation and art scheme proposals.
The HCA commissioned United Creatives and URS to bring their public art and urban design experience to the Ancoats Animation Programme project. Our brief was to determine how creativity, public art and events could attract more footfall to the area whilst publicising the Ancoats Urban Village at a regional and local level. Ancoats has since been dubbed one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world.
We worked closely with landscape architects LDA to develop a public art proposal and brand identity for Cutting Room Square. The brand identity was used to front a public consultation project, gathering local opinions on the development of the square.
