Rival Manchester Creative Agencies Wage Post-it Note War

A Post-it note war has begun in Manchester’s Northern Quarter as rival creative and digital agencies look to ‘out do’ each other in the creative stakes with elaborate designs and friendly messages using Post-its on their adjacent office windows.

There are five organisations currently involved with more coming on board daily as word spreads through social media channels (#leverstreetpostit)  

The fun exchange started when Reason Digital welcomed Code Computerlove to its new studio at Sevendale House on Dale Street with some #postitArt

Code replied to Reason’s “hello” with its own “hi” design to which Reason then upped the ante with a Post-it PacMan.

Rising to the challenge, Code’s response was an 8-bit style green Space Invader.

The exchange sparked a slew of other notes and images from fellow Northern Quarter agencies including Anything Digital, The Neighbourhood and Hyper Island.

Wini Tse, founder and director at Code Computerlove, said: “So far we’ve had Pac Man, Super Mario and even Hyper Island’s programme leader Tash Wilcox as part of the exchange, but we’re expecting to see lots more. The challenge is turning into our own ‘British’ version of #canalnotes

“We’re quite famous here at Code for our use of Post-its in a work capacity – we use a lot - for planning and brainstorming, so this bit of out of hours fun is a good way of recycling them anyway. We’re just hoping Post-it sends us some more packs so we can maybe consider my next design that I reckon will blow the other’s out of the water!”  

To follow the fun, go to Code’s blog on www.codecomputerlove.com or follow each agency’s Twitter and Facebook profiles.

Customers often only use a portion of the software they pay for — they may use email marketing but not lead scoring, or a keyword checker but not a backlink research tool. Understanding what your customers use most often can give you insights into how to deepen their engagement. Customer engagement analytics can reduce costs by reducing churn and building advocacy for your product.
