News: Prototype Creative sign with Tykes


Prototype Creative, the Rotherham-based design agency has become Barnsley FC's new exclusive provider for marketing and design services throughout the 2016/17 season.

Based at Manvers, the enterprising multi-disciplined agency was established in 2007 by web developer Josh Abbotts and graphic designer Gav Winder. It works with a wide range of clients, from SMEs to large global corporations including Boeing, Tower Hamlets College, Alcoa, Vitalife Health, EDLounge, and Ardagh Group.

As part of the deal, the Prototype brand is also now displayed on the newly-installed stadium tunnel at Oakwell and the official match ball stand. 

Gav Winder, creative director at Prototype Creative (pictured, left), said: "We are overjoyed to form a working partnership with Barnsley Football Club. The opportunities that this sponsorship will create for us will allow us to seriously grow.

"As lifelong Reds fans, it's a fantastic opportunity for us to work alongside the Club during what is a really positive and successful period in the club's history. We hope this partnership continues into the Premier League!"

Ian Leech commercial manager at Barnsley FC, added: "We're delighted to welcome Gavin, Josh and the team at Prototype on board as our latest commercial partner. After our initial meeting, they took the time to really understand us as a club and our goals and ambitions off-the-field. Prototype are right at the cutting edge when it comes to design services and I’m really excited to work with them and see first-hand the impact that their expertise will have at the club. 

"All of the designers at Prototype are Barnsley fans, so they really understand what it means to be a Red and how important this club is to the local community. Therefore, they are the perfect company to help us engage with our proud and loyal supporters through modern and creative design. Prototype are a forward thinking, creative, local based company that we as a club are proud to be associated with, and we can't wait to get going!"

Gav and Josh were awarded the top prize at the Rotherham Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in 2008 having built up the business at the RiDO-run Century Business Centre at Manvers with six months rent-free on the Rotherham Youth Enterprise (RYE) scheme.
