BL9 Media has appointed Cuckoo Design to create all marketing collateral leading up to the ‘BL9 Weekender’, a music event taking place at EventCity in Manchester on 13-14 June 2015.

The BL9 Weekender is a music event celebrating iconic artists past and present, including The Happy Mondays, Razorlight, Scott Mills and Coolio. A shared project between Bury FC’s chairman Stewart Day and music industry professional Andrew Brooks, a key aim of the event is to collaborate with local suppliers and organisations to showcase what vast potential the North West has to offer.

Cuckoo has already produced business cards, press ads, promotional posters and flyers, banners, a 48 sheet and social media assets, with t-shirts and wristbands going into production later this month.

Andrew Brooks said: “We’re so pleased to have Cuckoo Design on board as our preferred creative agency. They understand our target audience and their professionalism and flexibility in turning around fast briefs is a great help and essential to our team."

Phil Rainey, board and creative director at Cuckoo Design, said: "It’s fantastic to be involved in the first ever BL9 Weekender and we’re looking forward to working with BL9 Media going forward. We had been looking to get involved in a music event as it compliments our expertise in the hotel and hospitality sector. This project is perfect in many ways: it’s local to us and the line-up speaks for itself."

Salford-based Cuckoo Design’s clients include GE Capital, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Best Western, Fit Healthy Fabulous and Experian Credit Experts.
