Some of MLM’s Friends

There are occasions when Manchester Lights may not be able to help with your project, sometimes we just don’t have necessary  skills, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t know someone who can.

Here are some links to friends and folk that we have worked with in the past, who may be able to help, there are graphic designers, web designers, photographers all of whom are brilliant at what they do!

Graphic Design


Tompop is a Manchester based designer and a good friend, he has provided work for some of MLMs previous projects and is a great lad to boot.

Barbershop Beard



Manchester Lights got involved with Barbershop Beard during the brands conception. Tasked with providing a logo for the company and a launch film. Since then, we’ve produced the product packaging designs for all of the companies products, created and maintained the website as well as creating promotional  material for social media, buisness cards, sample cards, poster campaigns, leaflets etc.

The Textus Roffensis

Over the past year, we’ve been working on a project with Rochester Cathedral and CHICC Manchester to produce a film and accompanying DVD Project, for Rochester’s Hidden Treasures Exhibition.

The crypt which will house the exhibition is currently undergoing a huge restoration and is due to open later this year.

The Textus Roffensis is considered by some, to be as important as Shakespeares First Folio and the Domesday Book.

Contributors included Dr Chris Monk, broadcaster Michael Wood and Dr. Alixe Bovey.

The DVD included a film about the history of the book and the reasons for the digitisation of the manuscripts; readings and translations of the book itself and examples of the digitised images, produced by the team at CHICC. This was a wonderful project to work on, if you get a chance to view the completed exhibition and this remarkable book, please do!

Proud and Loud Arts

Manchester Lights has had a long running relationship with Proud and Loud Arts, a theatre company run by young disabled people from Salford.

Over the years, we have created a short promotional film as a way of attracting new members, as well as creating multimedia content for two of their performances which took place at The Lowry Theatre, we have also filmed several of their performances for archive and promotional purposes and created a number of creative film projects with the group.
