YORK creative and communications agency Morrice Partnership has moved into its ideal home.

After an eight month wait, the firm has finally put down permanent roots in prestigious new offices in the IT Centre at York Science Park.

The company specialises in creative business communications, and has worked with Tesco for 15 years as well as Barclays, Legal & General and Scottish & Newcastle, helping them to boost business through internal communications and branding. It also works with Science City York, Business Link York and North Yorkshire and the North Yorkshire Business and Education Partnership.

Formerly based in Clifton Moor, the firm has temporarily taken offices in the Genesis building at York Science Park to await a vacancy at the IT Centre.

The move comes as The Morrice Partnership has won a number of major projects in the creative and digital field in York.

These include marketing and communication development for SightSonic 2004, York's four-day international digital arts festival which takes place in October for the fifth year; leading the marketing team for Venturefest York, the region's biggest free event to support business start-ups and entrepreneurs; and promoting and participating in Skillsfest 2004.
