Animating the Wakefield Wallpaper

During the 10th -12th March 2015 the Wakefield Wallpaper took its place on the international stage in Cannes, France as part of MIPIM – the world’s leading property event that brings together the most influential players from all international property sectors.

Profiling the district, Our Agency, the design and digital agency based at Nostell Priory, transformed the Wakefield Wallpaper by creating a short animation that brought a selection of icons to life.

The animation was unveiled at the First Friday breakfast event in March, receiving excellent feedback – it was also featured on the big screen throughout the city as part of the Tour De Yorkshire event and also at the recent Buy Yorkshire Conference that took place in Leeds

Ian Winterbottom of Our Agency comments:

“The Wakefield Wallpaper is really starting to take shape, we’re increasing visibility locally and also internationally.

“Our intention has always been to bring the wallpaper to life and MIPIM allowed us to do just that. The animation is fun and engaging and it helped the inward development team to promote the district and stand out in what was a very competitive showcase.”
