North Shields Cultural Quarter

North Shields Cultural Quarter is a new cultural zone around Howard Street and Saville Street aiming to develop stronger connections between the town centre and vibrant Fish Quay.

The quarter aims to bring to life the new town centre and riverside, providing support to businesses, leisure users and retail. It’s focussed around key buildings at The Exchange, Globe Gallery and the Business Centre, which will be transformed into a cultural and creative business hub.

We were thrilled to have been appointed to help create a brand to reflect the people and places connected to the cultural quarter.

Rising to the challenge, we kicked off the project with a workshop with their community, cultural organisations and stakeholders to understand their ambition for the project.

We will be distilling the feedback and this will help influence the visual direction of the brand, an exciting project indeed.
