Adding colour to the Cotton Exchange
One of Liverpool's longest established marketing agencies has become the latest new arrival at the Cotton Exchange. Kaleidoscope was founded in 1988 by joint managing directors John Faulkner and Mike Edwards and later moved into its own offices in Rodney Street, where it achieved significant growth working on behalf of clients including United Utilities, Scottish Power, Chester Racecourse, Northwest Development Agency, Knowsley Safari Park, Silversea Cruises and Hill Dickinson.
Earlier this year, the firm sold the Grade II-listed building and has now relocated to a stunning penthouse space on the seventh floor of the Bixteth Street building, which is part of Bruntwood's Cotton Quarter development.
Kaleidoscope joins a host of other creative businesses at the Cotton Quarter, which has undergone a major redevelopment in recent years, including the installation of high-speed internet connectivity and the creation of a stunning contemporary roof garden.
Mike Edwards, managing director at Kaleidoscope, said: "After nearly a quarter of a century at our offices in Rodney Street, we set out to find a modern home in the very heart of the city that still offered us the creative individuality we had always enjoyed.
"Cotton Exchange proved a perfect fit and we have enjoyed working with Bruntwood to create a bespoke space that fits our needs and gives us a platform to achieve our new exciting ambitions for the business."
Matt Lee, head of sales at Bruntwood, said: "Kaleidoscope has an established place at the heart of Liverpool's marketing community and a genuine track record of success.
"For Kaleidoscope to choose the Cotton Exchange as the firm's first new home in almost 25 years is testament to the work we've undertaken in the building to make it more attractive to businesses in the creative industries.
"It has become a destination for a range of design, media and technology firms who understand the value of working among their client base, as well as a great location and contemporary workspace for their staff."
