A Black Country creative agency has struck a deal to relocate its office into central Birmingham.
Halesowen-based Colour Cubed Creative Communications has moved to a new 1,000 sq ft home in The Million Pen Building, in the Jewellery Quarter.
The agency supplies design, print, websites and marketing services to a range of clients including The REP, Library of Birmingham and Millennium Point as well across the UK and in Europe.
Director Simon Greenfield said: “In the 19th century, more than half the world’s pens were made in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
“We are very proud to be moving into what was St Paul’s Pen Works where the world’s finest quality pen nibs were manufactured, including the £1,000,000 nib.

“We have already begun to work on Commonwealth Games-related projects and have moved to the Jewellery Quarter in order to be right in the thick of things for this exciting period of our city’s history.”
Co-director Steve Moszynski said: “Inside the renovated factory of George W. Hughes, the new home of Colour Cubed, there are no cables or phones – we are now a completely wireless and paperless business.
“The wall graphics and signage have been installed celebrating the history of the building and the link between the mighty pens that were manufactured here and the design work we create today.
The lease deal was brokered by commercial property agency Siddall Jones.
Founder Edward Siddall-Jones added: “When George W. Hughes launched his business in 1852 in St Paul’s Square, and in 1893 moved to the purpose-built St Paul’s Penworks in Legge Lane, he could little have imagined the digital world we live and work in today.
“It’s fitting that a business like Colour Cubed Creative Communications is now resident and growing in his former headquarters.”
