Collaboration praise


A collaboration between three Cornish companies has been praised for boosting business in the county.

St Wenn-based Barefoot Media, Nine Design from St Columb, and Redfuse Internet of Truro worked together to build two websites which both launched this week.

And Partner to Succeed – an agency that brings businesses together to encourage growth in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly – has now praised their work.

Director Helen Trudgeon said: “This is a brilliant example of Cornish businesses working together and is excellent news for the future of Cornwall.

“While this collaboration lies outside our sector, it is good that our message is spreading to the wider business community and benefitting the economy in the county.”

The websites were for Holywell Bay-based Pennasville Holidays, and Wavefinder – a London-based publisher of guidebooks and technique manuals covering surfing, snowsports and mountain biking.

Barefoot Media managed the website builds. Partner Jim Michell said: “Building your own website can be a long and complicated process –using a team of specialists means you can concentrate on running your own business while we take care of your website.

“It’s been quite a challenge getting both sites live in the same week, so it’s great to have such positive feedback from our clients who are already starting to see the benefits.”
