The agency that designed the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014 logo, Marque looks set for closure following the resignation of its managing director Mark Noë and the subsequent appointment of interim liquidators.

The Glasgow headquartered agency, formerly Third Eye Design, was behind the design of the Commonwealth Games logo, and was acquired by the US entertainment and fashion company StarWorks in 2010, where it offered its services to premium, fashion and lifestyle brands.

According to Companies House, Noë resigned from the agency and as a partner at StarWorks on 1 May, which was followed by a petition being presented to Glasgow Sheriff Court on 11 May to appoint an interim liquidator.

MacRoberts LLP is currently acting as interim liquidator for the agency as a result.

Noë declined to comment on the matter but said that he was now pursuing new interests in both design and other fields in both the UK and US.

Co-incidentally, the design agency that created the communications for Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games's pitch to host the games, NavyBlue, has also now closed.

StarWorks declined to comment.
