into a successful business of the future.

Barry Braley and Lee Daymond have now brought their creative elearning company Foresight to offices at the University’s Hope Street Xchange building.

And you won’t be able to miss the lads after they decided to utilise their new city centre location with a special window display.

The digital projection screen in the new offices looks out onto St Michael’s Way and is helping bring some vibrancy to the area.

Likewise, Barry and Lee are bringing their considerable digital training experience to the city centre by choosing to locate here.

Barry, 36, said: “We just loved the spot in Hope Street Xchange and there’s a lot of new businesses starting up here so it’s good to be able to share experiences.

“When we were looking for premises, we did look down towards the East End of the city but we liked the idea of being more centrally located.

“This is ideal studio space for us and as we had been based previously at the Enterprise Place, also in this building, it meant we knew exactly what we were getting.”

Foresight works with businesses to create high quality, innovative experience in animation, video and curriculum development to help engage employees. They also offer to develop online learning environments to support learners and reduce training costs for companies.

Lee, 31, said: “Our digital creative skills help businesses to raise their profile and impact across social and web platforms.

“Animation, motion graphics, video and audio production as well as producing crisp Chroma-key compositing - aka green screen stuff - are just a few of the in-house tools we offer.”

The Enterprise Place is receiving up to £1,897,030 of funding from the England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. ‌
