Leeds-based creative production company Northern Artillery has won a major new contract with GPE, formerly Great Portland Estates.
The partnership with GPE represents an expansion of Northern Artillery’s expertise in real-estate into the commercial sector. It has previously partnered for the last two years with Moda Living, one of the UK’s leading build-to-rent developers.
The news also marks the company’s first retained contract with a FTSE-250 business, which will see it support GPE with comprehensive materials for its fully-managed office spaces across its £2.4bn portfolio of London real estate.
Northern Artillery’s success to date has been marked by a series of partnerships across various sectors, having won contracts with brands such as Tesla, The Inkey List and adidas. The diversity of Northern Artillery’s client base and fresh creative thinking was a key factor for GPE in the decision-making process.
Stuart Baker, co-founder and director of Northern Artillery, said: “Securing GPE as a retained client is a major milestone for us. As a relatively young agency, it demonstrates the calibre of our work and the dedication of our exceptional team. We established Northern Artillery with the goal of supplying market leading creative production you would expect from a global agency, with process, value, and relationships at the heart of our core values. The fact GPE has given us this opportunity speaks volumes for our capabilities and I could not be prouder of the team.”
Rebecca Walton, commercial marketing, GPE, added: “To attract customers to our London workspaces, we want to ensure we are providing best-in-class marketing materials to take them on that journey with us. Our partnership with Northern Artillery brings new expertise and skills to the table, which is already helping us create engaging content that considers our customer first approach. We are thrilled with the delivery we have seen so far and look forward to continuing our work together.”
