One man show adopts parent

One-man Manchester consultancy MD2 Design Consultants has been bought by Manchester marketing and advertising company Stowe Bowden Wilson.

Founder and managing director Stewart Mathers is joining SBW to head up what becomes SBW’s design division. It retains the MD2 name.

Mathers’ regular freelance staff move with him, as do clients including Nat West Markets and Perkins Foods. MD2 specialises in identity and literature design.

A spokesman for SBW says the company may recruit more designers to work with Mathers.
