Creative & Cultural Skills has appointed The Team, Together Design and Reading Room to handle the body’s strategy, design and Web work respectively.
The three groups were selected after a competitive tender process from around 40 submissions and they will become the CCS’s preferred suppliers until April 2007.
The CCS is a Sector Skills Council body that aims to promote the development of skills in creative industries such as design, crafts and advertising. Chief executive Tom Bewick says the work of these groups will help avoid the perception that the organisation is ‘yet another Government initiative’.
The Team managing director Julian Grice says the group is tasked with developing the CCS communications plan in order to ‘inspire employers in the creative sector to invest in skills, and champion the work of those employers that do’.
