12 Days of Arena Christmas

This year’s Christmas card design gave an insight of our achievements over the past year in the style of ’12 Days of Christmas’. Since sending out our card, we’ve had so much great feedback that we thought we’d give you a little more detail…

1 Spacious new studio
We outgrew the office we had in Bolton Arena, so in April we moved in to stylishly renovated premises on Chorley New Road. Why don’t you drop in for a brew?

2 New talents join our team
Sam joined the team in August as a design intern, later being made permanent. Shortly after, Lucy joined in November as our Project Co-ordinator. If you’re interested in joining us, we’re always looking for new talents to join our team!

3 Exciting international projects
There’s no barrier for whom and where we work which includes Healthy Active Living in Canada, AO Office Graphics in Germany and an exciting project all the way over in Australia.

4th Year in business begins
We’ve already had 3 great years and are now looking forward to our 4th! We’re growing up fast!

5 Successful graduate placements
We provided exciting opportunities and experience for students in the design industry, continuing to support future creative talent. We wonder who’ll be joining us in the studio this year…

6 Dressed up staff at Emma’s wedding
Our Designer, Emma, married husband James in June
which was a great celebratory day out for all the team.

7700,000 pieces of fresh print
From leaflets and flyers to wall graphics and brochures- we never stop ordering print!

8 – 80 Graze boxes devoured
Mondays just wouldn’t be the same without our weekly Graze delivery.
The Banoffee Dippers are our favourite!

9 – 960 pixels wide shiny new website
We are finally able to showcase our work and company updates on arenacreative.co.uk

10 – 10,000 sq2 of funky office graphics designed
No project is too big for us and this was certainly proven when we put our creative stamp on the walls of AO and Four Recruitment.

11 Merry staff and clients at Bolton Beer festival
Due to both designing the programme and being the official programme sponsors, there was no better way to celebrate our 4th birthday than at Bolton Beer Festival. We were very proud to play a big role in helping raise over £40,000 for charity.

12 New clients creating over 200 new projects
We love making new friends and 2014 was a great year for this.
We look forward to meeting lots more in 2015!
