Blog | We’re Moving on Up!

10th September 2015

Project Octo, King St ManchesterAfter a week or so of packing boxes, climbing (what felt like) thousands of stairs and excitedly scouring Pinterest for ideas, we have officially moved! From our humble home in Caxton Hall, to our vastly more spacious new office, in the aptly named King Street!

King Street is widely regarded as one of the streets of Manchester, and with Project Octo having moved in to one of the historical buildings, it is clearly the epicentre of all that is exciting in the city we call home. We’re lucky enough to be surrounded by some great bars and restaurants – perfect places to hold lunch time meetings…

Our team has doubled in the past two months, and so this new office will give us all more room to work and the ability to create a meeting area and a break out space – as well as a few crazy ideas we have for decorating the place!

Obviously we have tried to complete the move with as little disruption to our clients as possible. Sometimes this has involved taking our heads out of boxes to make a call, or writing content on the train home – we think it’s been pretty seamless ourselves!

So for now, we are occupied with unpacking boxes, searching the internet for the best, novelty chairs, and arguing over whose turn it is to make the next round of brews… some things never change!
