A city with creativity and innovation at its core was always going to become a centre for digital media and creative industries. And the establishment of the city’s Creative Quarter has seen a new wave of design and development talent emerge in the city.
Our two universities provide raw talent, with alumni including Turner Prize and British Fashion Council Award winners. Add to this two centres to foster emerging businesses – Antenna, a dedicated digital media centre, and the Broadway Media Centre, a hub for creative talents. The city’s culture of networking and collaboration can support your business, combined with production, exhibition and training spaces for film and digital media specialists.
More than 6,000 people in the area are employed by the sector and a tradition of production work have nurtured specialist skills in video, film, photography, design and publishing.
Nottingham has become a centre for software development, embracing industries as diverse as computer gaming – where the presence of companies like Crytek have gained an international reputation – and data analytics. This has boosted companies such as Experian, Capital One, Esendex and Ikano Financial Services to take advantage of the advanced skills in the area, and spawned a number of fast-growing businesses which began as corporate spin-outs, including TDX Group and HD Decisions.
Our roll call of creative thinkers is illustrious. We’re proud that such names as Sir Paul Smith, Speedo, Raleigh, Philip Watts Design and Daniel Hanson all call Nottingham home. And your company could benefit from our free-thinking approach.
