The team at Instruct is a creative bunch and has had fun assembling ideas for this Bee that reflected the industrial and creative spirit of Manchester. They reached out to artist Tasha (who manages the famous NQ graff spot on Stevenson Square) and sketched out symbols of fun, making and the endless opportunities you have with materials, tools and a bit of imagination … this is what they think makes Manchester.
Instruct Studio is a multi-disciplinary design studio based in Manchester working within the architectural, media and cultural sector… it also branded Bee in the City! They make things that are memorable and look good but at lnstruct’s core is learning, guiding and sharing. This passion has lead them to co-found ‘Design Manchester’ which, now in its sixth year, is one of the largest creative festivals in the UK.
