Peter Gabriel saves Manchester digital agency

December 23, 2008, Crain's Manchester business


Rock star Peter Gabriel’s Real World Holdings has stepped in to save a web design business which went into administration on December 11.

Digital media agency Lightmaker Manchester, a franchise operation from the Tonbridge-based Lightmaker Group Ltd, got into difficulties after bankers HSBC declined to extend its overdraft facility.

Gabriel and his business partners, who are clients of the business, have purchased the assets from the administrator and set up a new company, Great Fridays, Great People. Previous owner Matt Farrar will have a minority shareholding.

Farrar said the business would continue with the same 20 staff at its offices in the Parsonage, Manchester city centre.

Lightmaker Manchester provides web design, flash, 3D, brand building, web development, CMS applications and integration services. Clients have included Habitat, Liberty, MTV, Morphy Richards, Kenwood, Bamford and Sons, Debenhams and Next.

Digital is no longer the "under dog" of the marketing world, campaigns and strategies are now built around digital media with digital media becoming the centre piece of any activity, so a digital agency really needs to work at that strategic level with their clients.
