Bolton – land of [Channel 4 comedy drama] Phoenix Nights and mornings with [Radio 1 DJ] Sara Cox – was having a good run recently until business administrators claimed it was the most insolvent town in Britain.
So, news that Bolton-based Clock Creative Communications is launching an awards scheme to develop local graphic talent will put a few smiles back on Lancashire faces.
A Clock award will go to the student in each year group at the Bolton Institute who best meets the consultancy’s design brief. The top third year will be offered a three-month paid placement.
As they say round these parts, ‘Creativity? Have it!’
