Stockport was honoured with the status of Greater Manchester’s Town of Culture 2023/24. This provided amazing opportunities to get the public involved and celebrate the arts and creativity throughout the borough.


Our brief was to create a brand identity, website presence and supporting promotional collateral through which to communicate and celebrate this prestigious award.

The branding needed to reflect the positive, inclusive and cultural nature of the programme of events.

Stockport Town of Culture - Future Website


We created a distinctive, energetic identity based upon the programme’s four strands of the year of culture;

MOVES – celebrating creativity

SOUNDS – celebrating and promoting music and spoken word

MOVES – promoting opportunities to be more active

TASTES – celebrating and promoting food and drink

Dynamic shapes representing each of these strands were incorporated into the logo which could then be used as brand assets to reflect the vibrant and energetic nature of the programme of events.

Future really captured the energy and spirit of Stockport’s amazing year of culture through an eye-catching logo, website and supporting branded assets. This helped us effectively engage and communicate with the public to raise the programme’s profile which has led to an incredibly successful, well supported series of workshops and events, making our year as town of culture a fantastic success.
