We’re excited to have been enlisted by another fantastic client this week – Manchester’s very own The Printworks! Yes, the JAMpr team will be supporting the iconic entertainment complex with all its PR activity over the next 12 months, raising the profile of the venue and its 20 tenants, which include Hard Rock Cafe, Prezzo, Bierkeller, Virgin Active gym and Odeon cinema, as well as other popular dining and socialising outlets.
To kick off, we’re supporting The Printworks with its exciting Design A New Mascot competition this month, so we’ll be looking for budding artists in the region to submit creative designs. The winning entry will win a once in a lifetime prize by having their mascot brought to life by Hollywood special effects make up artist and sculptor, Shaune Harrison, who created make up for Voldemort from Harry Potter, Red Skull from Captain America, as well as many other well known movie characters.
We have already secured some great pieces of coverage for the competition including with our blogger friend Mouth O’Mighty, and on local news websites Manchester Gossip, Mancunian Matters and Manchester Gazette, with plenty more to come.
Why not get the kids to design a new mascot during the half term holidays, or have a go yourself if you love doodling superheroes and characters. Entries don’t need to be professional and can just be a hand drawn sketch. Have a look at the website for more information and for details on how to enter. Just click here.
There are lots more exciting events and activities in store at The Printworks and we can’t wait to get involved! From The Printworks Unsigned band contest (Jaime Gee on lead vocals?) to a Vintage Swing Festival in April (any excuse to dress up and have a boogie!), there’s something for everyone to enjoy so watch this space for updates.
