Red Square Design moved to Jam Jar after spending some years in Ouseburn. They were recommended by a networking colleague and we were impressed with the layout and concept from the off as it was similar to what we were used to in Ouseburn, but a level up in terms of spec.
We’re a creative digital design company helping businesses and business owners with their marketing and promotional needs, both online and in print, and we liked the idea of being part of the Jam Jar family. Everyone was very welcoming, friendly, helpful and considerate.
Now that we’re here we bump into fellow creatives, chat in the cafe and breakout areas, watch World Cup football and even do Joe Wicks HIIT sessions in the green room – how many businesses can boast about that?
We are also fortunate to have our own shower facilities, meaning we can continue to get our training sessions in and then get totally refreshed to continue the working day.
We are close to Gateshead’s shops, banks and transport links, but also within walking distance of Newcastle city centre, so it’s very handy indeed… although our staff who live in Gateshead are very grateful they don’t have to cross the dreaded Tyne Bridge every day.
Gateshead seems to be working to improve its image but I feel it still has a long way to go and should be encouraging smaller independent businesses to set up home and not just the large corporates, a mistake which has unfortunately seen the closure of some small retailers.
As for parking, there are areas within walking distance of Jam Jar where it is possible to park free all day; although Gateshead parking in general can sometimes be a bit of an issue.
To sum up, this has been a great move for us and we look forward to spending more years as part of the Jam Jar family.
