“Manchester is home to an amazing array of creative talent.”

Natalie Gray is a director at Manchester-based interior design company, NoChintz.

“I love Manchester because it is home to an amazing array of creative talent. Being from up North, I feel it’s important to represent! Most of the European design world assumes it’s all about London, but Manchester is definitely home to a new wave of multi-disciplined creatives that are pushing the boundaries. There is also a lovely community feel, which makes the creative industry up here a nice thing to be part of.”
