Blick Studios proved to be the catalyst that helped drive our growth. Its affordable desk space meant that we could be situated in BT1 amongst other creative businesses located in the bustling Cathedral Quarter, opening up opportunities to collaborate. The central location meant we had access to loads of potential clients, were easily accessible and it opened us up to networks both internally through Blick and within Belfast. The hub that Blick has built to support businesses no matter what stage they're at has been invaluable in terms of helping Clever Ghost grow and expand. They're affordable, provide excellent facilities, great locations, support residents through networking, promotion and encourage their residents to get involved with events, workshops, or contribute to creative projects that they're involved with. For anyone looking to start a business, we would highly recommend beginning that journey at Blick and for anyone who already is established then, Blick offers the chance to expand your network and become part of a growing creative community that is shaping Belfast and beyond.
Blick's Hill Street Studios are a perfect setting for harnessing creativity and hatching new ideas alongside like-minded folk from all artistic backgrounds. Located smack-bang in the heart of the bustling Cathedral Quarter, inspiration is only ever a lunch-break away!
Blick Studios on Hill Street was a fantastic place to be based. A wonderful creative, hard working atmosphere in a perfect city centre location with all the benefits that brings. The excellent facilities include strong wifi, clean kitchen, meeting areas and generous space for periods of downtime. A great team and a lovely vibe to the whole experience.
Blick is a great location, and an equally great office environment. Hill Street is at the happening heart of Belfast, the local bars and eateries offer a wide choice to take clients, and the office itself feels a well thought through creative space to be in. It is well run, with a light touch and enabling management style which still ensures that everything is done that needs to be. It is actually a joy to work in.
"It has been a great experience moving into Blick. The space itself is fresh, vibrant, and in a really good area. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a work space within a creative community."
"Being at Blick Studios has been a great experience for me as a designer. I have met many likeminded creative entrepreneurs and Christine and Rosy have done a lot to support local creative businesses through collaboration, events and their time."
"A big thanks to you for everything. Was such a lovely place to work in, you’s are doing a great job, I would happily recommend Blick to others."
"Blick looked like the perfect next step for our business and would give us a workspace in an entirely different part of town with new scenery and exciting businesses around us. The design-focused workshops and events made Blick look like the perfect fit for us, as Elixsr has good design principles at it's core, being surrounded by people with the same passion screamed nothing but benefits to us."
"It's been a fantastic opportunity for me as a freelancer. Beforehand, I'd never fully settled on the idea of fully emerging myself as an Illustrator, but the desk space enabled me to focus all my ideas and get on with the work. I've gained commissions and made connections with other creatives I would never have otherwise and other opportunities have presented themselves in the process."
“I previously ran my architecture practice from home and since moving into Blick I have found that my productivity has increased significantly (probably doubled!). The facilities are great: The shared area, which I use for client meetings creates the right balance between creativity and professionalism, while the shared studio space is simple and functional while allowing for personalisation.”
“So pleased to have discovered Blick Shared Studios and all they have to offer the creative industries - I couldn't recommend them any higher.”
“Blick's Hill Street studios are bang in the middle of one of the most exciting and creative areas to be in. It's a great space to be in, and full of like-minded people from all manner of disciplines which in itself creates all manner of opportunities.”
