Colman Getty win Birmingham Library marketing contract

London based Colman Getty has usurped its Birmingham based competitors to land a £292k marketing contract for the city’s under construction library over the next three years.

Getty picked up the contract from S&X Media, incumbents in the library promotion role, who had held the contract since 2009.

They will be tasked with drawing up a “high impact regional, national and international campaign” for the cultural landmark as its 2013 opening date draws nearer.
