The story

In the heart of Northampton’s culture quarter and surrounded by heritage buildings, the Vulcan Works is designed to support creatives and build community.

Oxford Innovations was working with West Northamptonshire Council looking to create a brand for the innovation centre that coexists with Northampton's Cultural Quarter and compliments the old Vulcan Works building.

Through recommendation, the team invited The Brady Creative to tender for the project.

The result

Vulcan Works has a brand that stands out, is strong, reflects its industrial heritage and coexists with the rest of the cultural quarter's personality.

The identity has been built to galvanise those that work in the building and inspire those that aspire to be there. We want those that grow there to be proud. To communicate and support one another, whilst the team at Vulcan Works assist in enabling their growth.

When people think of Vulcan Works we want them to think of style, creativity, and how modern ways of working come together in a heritage building.

The happy customer...

What a pleasure it has been working with The Brady Creative on the branding for The Vulcan Works. From start to finish it has been so easy working with the team and I was very impressed with how quickly they became in tune with the project. The end results are fantastic! A brand that represents this new creative hub with style, character, and class.
