Design Inspiration

Manchester loves a party! The 80s and 90s nightlife and rave scene gave the city an international reputation as a centre of music, culture and art. This scene has had a lasting impact on Manchester and helped it develop into the modern, creative city it is today. The Bee’s fluorescent colours are influenced by the iconic, neon fashions that became such a signature of that era.

Ask Real Estate is a Manchester based property development company creating new places where people want to be. Together with the Richardson family and PATRIZIA UK, Ask is leading on the continued expansion of the vibrant First Street neighbourhood in Manchester city centre. With HOME, INNSIDE and leading independent bars and restaurants, First Street has become the destination of choice for visitors and businesses alike.

The Artist -Caroline Daly

Caroline is an artist from Manchester with a background in Theatre Design, who is greatly inspired by local wildlife, especially birds! She painted two bees for the Bee In The City art trail. Her work often features decorative pattern, line and symmetry and she prefers to work by hand using traditional mediums whilst trying to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
Caroline also enjoys working as an arts facilitator providing a whole host of art workshops for young people and community groups in Greater Manchester.
Caroline's window is inspired by the work of Manchester Festival of Nature. It is a celebration of the wonderful and diverse wildlife in and around our city. The festival, held at Heaton Park, June 27th, allows people to immerse themselves in the wild while learning about the plants and creatures they can experience here in Greater Manchester, including all of the birds illustrated in the window.
