Creative Industries

Dundee has a vibrant, emerging and diverse creative and digital industries sector and the ambition to compete globally to deliver cultural and commercial success - the city has innovation at its heart!

Having produced winning creative brands from 'Peter Pan' to 'The Beano' and 'Grand Theft Auto' to 'Minecraft', the region is looking to build on its unique track record and unlock its true potential and realise economic and cultural benefits.

​With further strengths across marketing and PR, architecture, journalism and publishing, Dundee is a communications hub with firms based in the city such as Blue Square, MTC Media and Volpa. There are also a large number of smaller agencies and consultancies including Grainger PR, My Pinkie Promise and Patter PR. Scotland-wide, the sector is estimated to contribute more that £1 billion to the economy.

​As a UNESCO City of Design, Dundee is home to the V&A Dundee and award winning architects such as Nicoll Russell and Aim and is the long-standing base of newspaper and magazine powerhouse DC Thomson. The group also includes Bright Solid, the online services company.
