It has been a pleasure to play our part and facilitate this move for Lesniak Swann. They needed larger premises to accommodate their expanding team and continue providing exceptional services to their clients. The beautifully refurbished heritage building at Spode 5 proved to be the perfect fit for their needs.

The office is a former workshop for the renowned Spode brand, historically home to pottery industry creatives like throwers, designers, and painters. The recent renovation, led by Stoke-on-Trent City Council, is part of a broader initiative to create modern, digitally enhanced enterprise space for local businesses and startups.

The office space available has been finished to an exceptional standard with modern contemporary design and furnishing. The premises provides a flexible working environment with break-out space for collaborative working, private working areas for individual use along with video call facilities and on-site parking.

One of the most exciting aspects of the project is that it is at the heart of the emerging “createch” community—a group of both established and startup creative businesses. These createch businesses focus on selling creative services while leveraging new and emerging technology to enhance their work. Together, they not only provide over 150 well-paid jobs but also contribute more than £10 million to the city in terms of direct revenue and business for local suppliers. This dynamic environment is sure to inspire innovation and collaboration.

The move offers several advantages for Lesniak Swann, including enhanced collaboration opportunities with peers, easier access to top talent from local universities, and proximity to big brands both in the UK and internationally. This strategic move positions the agency for continued growth and success. This relocation not only benefits the agency but also contributes to the growth and vitality of the creative and digital community in Stoke-on-Trent.
