We’re proud curators of Motion North here in Manchester, here’s a bit about our new sponsor.

We’ve been curating Motion North since 2012, you can read more about the event here:

One company who regularly attends is AO. We’re delighted that a Manchester company has agreed to come on board as our lead sponsor and help the event through 2020.

“As a business founded, nurtured and grown in the North West, AO is really proud to work with Motion North to champion Motion Designers, Animators, Filmmakers and VFX Artists residing in the North. As a leading global pureplay electricals retailer, helping customers choose the right product for them by telling product stories is increasingly important which is why we are one of the largest design employers in the North, with over seventy specialist 3D, Film, Motion and Graphics Designers based in Manchester.

One of the reasons we are so excited to partner with Motion North, is to help advocate that vibrant design community and share our love of creating and making with its talented designers and artists.

We are hoping that, through our involvement with Motion North, we can make AO and the North a destination for more skilled designers, especially in areas like Motion Design, Animation, Film and VFX.

We look forward to working with Motion North in 2020 and getting some great speakers along to the events. And showcasing some of our AO stories, projects and design work too.”

George Burton, Creative Director,

With AO as our lead sponsor alongside our existing support from co-sponsor Escape Technology Motion North is well set for an exciting 2020.
