The Met Office has appointed five consultancies to its creative design services framework.
Bell Design and Communications, Bright Light Communications, Edinburghbased White Light Media and Bristol-based consultancies 375 and Robson Dowry have all been appointed to work with the Met Office, which is the UK’s national weather service.
The five groups have been appointed to a three-year contract.
They will be tasked with projects to build and support the Met Office brand in support of the Met Office design studio.
They will be asked to provide creative design and artworking for both print and new media projects.
The five were appointed following a tender from the Met Office which was released in March last year.
A Bell Design spokeswoman says there were more than 100 applications in response to the tender.
Bell Design account director Kate Sanderson says, ’We are thrilled to win this prestigious account, particularly after the Met Office received so many responses.’
Andy Yeatman, head of communications at the Met Office, says, ’We look forward to working with our new roster, including the team at Bell Design.
I’m sure they will bring a lot of fresh ideas to the way we visualise our work around the weather and climate change.’
