Vigilante Group launches to shake up the experience sector

Six creative companies have teamed up to launch the Vigilante Group, described as a "rebellious team of creative companies" looking to "liberate the world from the fortress of the status quo".

Focusing on the visitor attraction, experience and entertainment industries, the newly formed collective will specialise in advertising, experiential spaces, film, design, art, digital, construction – and "everything in between".

Many of the companies already specialise in the visitor attractions and museums market.

The Vigilante Group consists of:

• Cod Steaks – design and build artisans focusing on museums, branded attractions, theme parks, marketing and art Installations.
• Burning reel – a film production firm which creates advertising awareness campaigns and documentaries
• Creep – a new age film, animation and visual effect post production company working across a spectrum of genres in both long and short forms
• Afew – a team of designers and developers specialising in creating innovative digital experiences for the web
• Arcadia – a company specialising in the event, show and festival market
Technically Creative – a digital attractions and immersive experience specialist

"I'm so excited for the companies, including our own, that have come together to form this exciting new collaboration," said Marc Broadbent, founder and director of Technically Creative.

"The Vigilante Group showcases the culmination of the achievements by so many of the dedicated creative teams within the group.

"We have united to provide unequalled results with a painless delivery, giving the client the best services for any creative project."

Mark Pyrah, development director at Cod Steaks, added: "This is a unique group of individuals, created to widen our individual markets, skill base and creative thinking in ways that enhance our own existing client offers.

"We see the same creative solutions rolled out time after time, the same interactives the same types of interpretation.

"This group helps mix things up with fresh thinking, cuts through the ‘mark up’ dominated design and build market.

"Vigilante Group gives clients real creative solutions at real prices and I am excited at what this team can achieve."
