North Yorkshire digital agency unveils co-working collaboration

A Harrogate-based digital agency has revealed it was behind the name and brand design for the town’s new co-working space - Co-Lab.

Extreme, was chosen by Harrogate Borough Council (HBC) to complete a brand exercise, through which the offering was named, its visual identity created and inspiration found for some of the internal decor.

Co-Lab is a contemporary co-working hub designed to offer creative, flexible workspace from desks to meeting rooms and small offices, primarily to digital and tech start-ups and scaleups.

Situated within the Harrogate Convention Centre, Co-Lab will be located in what was previously a council employee building. Work is now underway on renovations, with plans for a November launch.

Rachel Walton, account manager from Extreme said: “We’re really thrilled to see work has started on this project as it’s one we’re very proud to have worked on.

“Co-Lab, as a name, embodies the idea behind these spaces and celebrates both collaboration and a place where great ideas and different skills can be combined to create something new and exciting.

“After a year of disruption, there are more start-ups than ever, many of whom need inspiring spaces to work from that meet their needs, aspirations and budget - that’s where Co-Lab will come in.”

Cllr Graham Swift, deputy leader of Harrogate Borough Council and cabinet member for resources, enterprise and economic development, said: “Co-Lab was created to help showcase, support and maximise the breadth and depth of tech expertise and creativity on offer in the north.

“It will provide the Harrogate district with a unique opportunity to position itself as an exciting and cost-effective alternative to offices in city centres, while giving start-ups and scales-up a chance to collaborate with our businesses.

“We’re very grateful for Extreme’s creative expertise in creating this brand and we’re looking forward to unveiling many great updates and opportunities regarding Co-Lab in the coming months.”
