Helping local independent businesses in 2020
Like so many at the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak, we found ourselves with a little extra time than we’d originally expected. We wanted to use our skills to do something to help the local community and the businesses affected by the global pandemic, and after an impromptu ideas session we decided upon what has now become Tyne Collective.
What we did
- Bespoke Website Design

Gift voucher platform for local businesses
Tyne Collective is an online platform that allows independent businesses in the North East to sell gift vouchers that their customers can redeem when they re-open.
Allowing customers to support their favourite businesses
The concept of the platform allows customers a way of supporting their favourite business with cash flow whilst closed during the on-going pandemic, and also gives those that buy vouchers something to look forward to post-pandemic. We collaborated with our friends over at Regalo, who power the gift card platform so our businesses have a secure and robust way to sell and manage their vouchers.
Tyne Collective in the press
Tyne Collective picked up a lot of positive press with features on BBC’s Look North as well as articles in North East Times and NatWest Business website. The platform has proved a big hit with a various range of business types, including RPM Music, Flip Vintage, The Stand Comedy Club and Thali Tray.
Since becoming part of Tyne Collective, we’ve sold a remarkable number of online discount vouchers.”
