MAG (Manchester Airports Group ) is a leading UK airport group that owns and operates Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands airports. They see over 60 million passengers flying through its airports every year, and employ over 40,000 people on site.
Many of us have used Manchester airport, for both business and leisure, however, the changes that are now taking place are on an unprecedented scale. The transformation will bring huge benefits to the area, in terms of job creation and economic generation. Many more routes are now coming, to key locations in China and West Coast America. We have worked closely with the airport’s transformation team (MAN-TP) to develop literature, advertisements and a new website to both inform and educate on Terminal Two’s exciting regeneration.
The Manchester Airport Transformation Programme website was designed and developed by The Agency Creative to act as the central information hub for every stage of the development process. This includes new pier openings and extensions of the terminal, right up to 2024.
The website features a range of fly-through videos that give a glimpse of the future and detail key milestones within the £1 Billion development process. Video clips within the site feature interviews with key personnel and provide a behind the scenes glimpse of the construction process. The Man TP project is all about creating a world-class passenger experience and the website we created needed to reflect this.
One of the first projects we undertook for Terminal Two, was a 16-page design that conveyed the key benefits of the expansion whilst reflecting MAG Group’s brand guidelines. A Statistics combiner with computer-generated visuals helped to depict how the airport will look following the re-development of Terminal Two. We also handled the print requirement for this job, which involved a highly responsive turnaround time.
We have designed an advertisement to inform the public of Manchester Airport Terminal Two’s expansion plans. The advert is for a Manchester-based Newspaper’s website and a regional News website. The advert was designed in two formats, the one displayed here is a website skin, suitable for desktop viewing, it is displayed around the main website content.
The second format of the advertising was a pop-up, suitable for mobiles. Any user of the newspaper’s website would see this pop-up before continuing onto the website’s homepage. Both adverts linked through to the MAN-TP website – a page listing any disruptions airport visitors may experience, this will change as developments progress.
We were asked to design a range of internal and external billboards to help inform the Airport users of the new plans for the expansion of Manchester Airport’s terminal two.
The 1 billion investment into the Manchester Airport Transformation Programme will be completed by 2020 and will see the inclusion of more than 220 new destinations, and 60 new retail, food and beverage outlets.
The billboards are located within terminal 2 and externally at some key roadside billboard sites. They are text-driven and focus on delivering factual information to the users of the airport. We have included outlines of some of Manchester’s iconic buildings along with Manchester Airport’s control tower.
Part of the MAG group, Stansted Airport is a growing airport serving London and the South East. We have worked with the Marketing team to deliver a series of creative and design projects aimed at increasing passenger engagement, encouraging retail sales and communicating change.
The airport is undergoing a huge transformation which will enable it to handle an increasing number of passengers in newly developed facilities.
Following the increased passenger demand in Winter 2021, Manchester Airports Group (MAG) required graphics to promote employment opportunities across its three airports – East Midlands, London Stansted and Manchester. Roles range from security officers, customer service officers, car parks staff to hospitality and lounge staff were all in high demand.
To support this recruitment drive, we produced a series of graphics for posters, digital display boards within the airports to raise awareness and drive job applications from those with the right skills. The graphics combine authentic ‘real-people’ imagery with the MAG brand colour wash and attention grabbing copy.
