Art, Bed & Breakfast seeks web and branding specialists

The Art, Bed and Breakfast is a project to transform one of Blackpool?s existing 4000 traditional Bed and Breakfast hotels into a contemporary art and social space, in a familiar setting, to engage more people with arts and culture in the region.

Art B&B will become a functioning Bed and Breakfast, permanent art installation and a small scale cultural venue in one. A game-changing re-imagining of a famous (or infamous!) institution (The Blackpool Bed and Breakfast) that will self-generate press and media interest and help change perceptions of Blackpool. It will be a commissioning project where every possible aspect of A, B & B will be considered as an artist commission, from room design to the breakfast menu.

Our main message is to be pioneering, bold and innovative whilst remaining accessible, witty and approachable to the general public. We are experimenting with a sustainable and scalable business model capable of expanding to refurbish further premises and enhance the visitor and residential experience of Britain?s most visited and exciting seaside town.

We are seeking an exceptional web design company and an exciting branding company to help us realise the online presence and brand identity of this highly innovative project.
