PR firm unlocks Cornish potential


The head of a graduate placement programme has hailed the creation of a new website as an example of how European money has helped Cornish business.

Allyson Glover, head of Convergence-funded Unlocking Cornish Potential, described the collaboration between Liminal Design, Redfuse Internet and Barefoot Media as a great example of what the programme set out to achieve.

Ryan McFarlane and Mark Grice, from Liminal and Redfuse respectively, are both part of the graduate business start-up programme which UCP launched this year.

They were hired by Barefoot to rebrand and redevelop the St Wenn-based PR company’s website as they grow to include digital and social media services. The project was managed by Barefoot’s Sam Lynas, who was recruited in January 2010 through the UCP scheme.

Allyson Glover said: “It’s great to see businesses in Cornwall working collaboratively to achieve great results. One of the keys to success in the county is partnering with other companies, making links and sharing ideas.

“Working with Liminal and Redfuse, both companies we’re pleased to support through our Graduate Business Start-up programme, Barefoot have been able access the right skills to develop their website to the highest quality.”
