Katie Edwards’ Illustrations Bring Roomzzz And The City Of Manchester To Life

Posted 13.03.18 | By Emma Hart

For our new Roomzzz Manchester Corn Exchange location, Katie Edwards was commissioned to create unique and inspiring illustrations to fill the aparthotel’s walls with colour.

These illustrations aim to educate guests about the history of Manchester, inspire them to explore the city, and also to give a unique look to Roomzzz Manchester Corn Exchange.

Katie, a screen print artist from the Lake District, created a large mural which picks out significant people, buildings, and events that are associated with Manchester. The art includes images of Rolls Royce, Manchester’s Worker Bee, The National Football Museum, Peter Kay, and Selfridges which are all recognisable icons of the city.

Roomzzz also features individual pieces of art to represent the aparthotel’s USPs. These include “Free As A Bird” which features a cockerel and  an owl which represents Roomzzz bean-to-cup coffee and hot drinks for the early birds and night owls.

“Roomzzz To Swing A Cat” features two cats swinging through the air to show how much room there is in each aparthotel room. And “Your Nest In The Heart Of The City” lets guests know they can make themselves at home after exploring the city all day.
