Music artwork brand takes space at King Street

Microdot, the globally recognised music artwork brand has taken 375 sq ft of space at iconic retail and leisure district, King Street.

The brand, which was launched in 1990 by Brian Cannon, created record sleeve artwork for everything released by Oasis and The Verve throughout the 1990’s and has created a selection of artwork for Suede, Cast, Ash and Super Furry Animals. The accreditation ‘A Microdot Design’ adorns over 75 million units of product worldwide.

Tom Royston, Director at DTZ Investors said: “We are delighted to be supporting independent brands at King Street and believe an iconic brand with so many links to Manchester like Microdot supports the wider strategy for the district. We are looking forward to watching them grow and develop on the street.”

Brian Cannon, Founder and Creative Director at Microdot said: “We chose King Street for our Manchester store as it is one of the most premium shopping thoroughfares in the city, being in such close proximity to brands such as Pretty Green is great for us and we just love the vibe of the street.”

This will be Microdot’s second site with their initial store being based in Kendal.

Microdot is set to join a number of other brands located on the street including The White Company, Pretty Green, El Gato Negro, TAST, recently launched Franco Manca and Clarks Originals.

Lyons Thompson Letts and Orme acted as leasing agents on the deal.
