RedStar Creative have announced that they have secured a significant investment into the business to help the agency develop its core strengths as well as extend its software-based offering for ebay sellers with an aim to establish the business as a multi-national agency.
The funds will be used to initially increase the staff levels at the 9-strong agency, make a series of software-based acquisitions as well as develop existing multi-channel packages developed in their Manchester office. Founder and Managing Director Darren Ratcliffe will remain in the business in the same capacity.
