Local design firm invests £750,000 to boost worldwide sales

Mar 05, 2009

Belfast-based digital design company rehabstudio is investing almost £750,000 in a project to boost exports and increase its annual turnover to more than £1 million, with support from Invest Northern Ireland.

rehabstudio specialises in digital marketing communications and advertising solutions, offering a range of customised creative and technical services including designing and developing websites, social network applications, and viral and mobile marketing.

Oonagh Hinds, Invest NI’s Eastern regional Office Manager, said: “rehabstudio is a highly entrepreneurial local company aiming to maximise its profits by developing sales in external markets. Companies such as rehabstudio can benefit from economies of scale and increase their productivity as they expand their operations and further compete outside Northern Ireland.

“The majority of rehabstudio’s business growth is generated through personal selling and we are supporting the company to develop as it visits new markets and secures deals with new clients.”

“rehabstudio already has an impressive portfolio of clients such as Doritos, Amazon, Universal Music, Saab and Motorola, and this project can help extend that collection,” added Ms Hinds.

Jurgen Prause, Technical Director of rehabstudio, said: “Today’s consumers weave seamlessly between the real world and the internet, watching catch-up TV, shopping and chatting to friends on Facebook. We help our clients maximise the commercial opportunities presented by the growth of digital media, by producing highly targeted and creative online communications which connect them with their customer base.

“With a growing global demand for this kind of digital know-how, we already have exciting opportunities in Europe, Asia and the USA and we are growing the team to further exploit these developing markets, with Invest NI’s help.”
