Mark Hildred looking into bubble tubeApollo Creative, named after the Greek and Roman God of Light, Sound and Healing, is aimed at the sensory and architectural markets; interior design, exhibitions, artistic projects and museums. This new division is benefiting from the skills and expertise of Mark Hildred who has recently been appointed to head up this initiative. Mark has worked extensively within the special needs sector for over ten years including four years investigating the latest technologies at the University of York. He also brings with him a wealth of experience in interactive audio applied across a wide range of projects from touring exhibitions to museum installations.

Apollo Creative, based in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, has been working to develop upon its existing range of bubble tubes, bubble walls and LED fibre optic light sources. These are predominantly sold for inclusion in multisensory rooms for use by children and adults with special needs, but increasingly Apollo is finding outlets as diverse as hair salons and exhibition stands.

Benefiting from such experience, and supported by the electronic design capabilities offered by GSPK Design Ltd, Apollo Creative is developing a leading reputation for providing revolutionary new products into the market place. Apollo also provide consultancy for project work from initial ideas, through project management to technical support and training. This service enables their customers to access the company’s unique skill base. Current projects include interactive fountains, light and sound rooms, sensory environments, digital play areas and museum interactives.

Mark Hildred, Creative Director for Apollo Creative said – “The next twelve months promise to be very exciting as we build upon the solid foundation already provided by our UK and International distributors. We are engaged in a range of exciting development projects that will help establish Apollo as the leading company within this sector.”
