Arch in action

Arch Creative is an action orientated agency who love to solve creative problems.

We’re constantly looking for proactive ways to market products and services, and over the years we’ve initiated a number of projects to help support some challenging issues. These include our latest two creative frameworks:

We’re also dedicated to creating projects which can make a real difference to the local community. These include our idea to create the record breaking ‘Mods : Shaping a generation’ exhibition, which we co-curated, organised and designed, working closely with young people’s charity Soft Touch Arts. The hugely popular exhibition contributed 1.75M to the local economy and won a tourism award. The next in our series of subculture exhibitions, ‘Punk : Rage & Revolution’ received 50,000 visitors, contributed 2.5M into the local economy, won a tourism award for best free event and also won the National Lottery Project of the Year Award for England.

Arch are a founding partner in the Leicester Craft Beer and Music Festival Brew Beat which is sponsored by BID Leicester brewbeat.co.uk
