MediaCityUK hooks a Fuzzy Duck
Award-winning interactive design agency, Fuzzy Duck, has relocated its team of ‘ducklings’ across the pond from Stockport to The Greenhouse in the heart of Manchester’s MediaCityUK.
The move coincides with the agency’s 10th anniversary that has brought its team of 15 creatives to The Greenhouse where its film, print, digital and animation departments are now based across multiple office space totalling 1, 270 sq ft.
With Founder and Managing Director David Hartill at the helm, Fuzzy Duck has built a strong reputation for delivering cutting edge internal and B2B communications within heritage, corporate and commercial sectors.
Fuzzy Duck’s unique roll-call of clients range from Manchester United to United Utilities and from TalkTalk to the Tower of London, with recent client wins including Amec, Foster Wheeler and Morgan Sindall.
David said: “From starting out as a back bedroom business 10 years ago to now being based in the heart of one of the most creatively vibrant locations in the UK has been a fantastic journey. The move to MediaCityUK not only raises our profile regionally but nationally. We’re looking forward to collaborating with other creative talent within the MediaCityUK community so we can continue to push the boundaries in creativity.’
Stephen Wild, Managing Director of MediaCityUK, said: “Fuzzy Duck is an exciting addition to the range of occupiers within The Greenhouse and after taking a significant amount of space makes it one of our key creative tenants.”
