Trusted Digital Partner Backs #4Sparks
23 Oct 2017
Digital agency, Numiko which is based in the city centre of Leeds has a history of working with Channel 4. Below Numiko's founding director, Dave Eccles explains what Channel 4 locating to the region could mean for the creative industry.
"Numiko has worked with Channel 4 as a trusted digital partner on many high profile projects such as The Undatables, Stand Up to Cancer, Fresh Meat, Bear Grylls ‘ The Island and the Paralympics.
"Channel 4 locating in Leeds would have an enormous impact. Not only would it shape the future of the city region for years to come, but also give Channel 4 the talent it needs to continue to thrive. With the unstoppable rise of on-demand, internet based content providers such as Netflix and Amazon vying for viewers’ attention, Channel 4 needs to be able to plug into a local ecosystem of digital talent which will guarantee its success for the next 35 years. I strongly believe that Leeds can provide this, both now and into the future. We have a huge number of highly acclaimed digital companies that will support Channel 4 right now. What is just as important for Channel 4 is that we also have an impressive infrastructure that will support its future, such as brilliant national transport connections, our status as a Gigabit City, world class universities and a long standing commitment from local government to keep Leeds ahead in the digital economy."
