Welcome to the second video short in our series of six about Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle, showcasing the area to creative industries and property developers interested in moving or investing there.
In ‘Business and Trade’, we speak to just three companies – from the very many located here – about their experiences of working in the area.
We interview Paul Ellis from MircobrandsOne, the company behind the slick brand Slazenger Heritage; Roy Jones who established Pacificstream, which provides business support to new and established companies and Selwyn Hymas, the fabulous owner of a real hidden gem: antiques emporium, Pilgrim’s Progress.

Liverpool Vision, the city’s economic development company, agreed to part-fund the six four-minute films.
Drawn to affordable studio and office space as much to the emerging urban scene with cool cafés, galleries and like-minded people, the influx of creative industry professionals and new business is improving all sides of the Triangle.
“We feel the films will be an effective way to help the Baltic Triangle showcase its potential to a much wider audience,” says Max Steinberg, chief executive of Liverpool Vision.
“The land proposition is similar to the early days of New York’s Meat Packing District or London’s Hoxton – it has that same atmosphere – and in the same way, I’m sure investors and businesses recognise these opportunities.
Barry McGorry, senior development advisor at Liverpool Vision who provides business support to the area, adds:
“The films provide a fantastic preview of the Baltic Triangle. Businesses can develop a feel for the area, what it looks like, what sort of organisations and people operate there and the high-level – and diversity – of work that’s generated.”
Mohawk Media produced the films with top Liverpool photographer, Mark McNulty who shot the film and creative agency, Smiling Wolf (editor: Brainface) for post-production. Both collaborated for no fee.
