Games design studio in Middlesbrough upgrades office space with £10k investment

A Middlesbrough-based games design studio has benefitted from a £10k funding package from HSBC UK to support the refurbishment of its office.

SockMonkey is a games design studio based in the region, with a heritage of working on various games including Songbringer, Beat the Intro and Prison Architect.

The business has used the funding from HSBC UK to refurbish its Middlehaven office, creating a space that caters for its growing team and aiming to reach new recruits.

Bob Makin, CEO of SockMonkey Studios, said: “The business is going through a period of growth and the support from HSBC UK has meant we have been able to create a fun working environment which allows the team to have practical downtime in a light open working space.

“Off the back of some recently completed projects, we’re seeing further expansion in turnover and we anticipate doubling the team.”

The newly refreshed office now features a conference area, new meeting rooms and wall vinyl designs.

Jonathon Alderton, business banking specialist at HSBC UK, added: “SockMonkey Studios is a perfect example of a dynamic, growth-hungry business.

“The company was founded in 2013 and in six years it has become an award-winning games design studio that has landed prestigious contracts. We’re proud to be a part of SockMonkey’s story and we look forward to seeing it expand in the future.”
