At the recent Annual General Meeting of The Cellar Project it was announced that as of 19 December Desktop Publishing will close permanently and will re-open in the New Year as a new social enterprise called “Farfield Media”, offering web development and print services to customers.
Desktop Publishing actually ceased to be a Workshop/Skillshop back in September 2011 due to funding cuts, but as there was no immediate use for the facilities, it was decided that service users could come in and use the machines / printer rather than leaving the equipment lying idle. Now we feel that the facilities & equipment have a bright new future!
Farfield Media will be lead by Clive Newitt, our Marketing Officer who joined the company in July this year. Clive, together with 3 new positions being offered initially as internships, will allow us to expand our customer base and earn some money – which will be ploughed back and go towards the running costs of The Cellar Project!
Clive has many years experience in website development / New Media and has brought a loyal client base with him to The Cellar Project. We also still have many customers who we have been doing the occasional print job for, which will give us a solid foundation to begin with. We are currently busy finalising a new website / logo and branding which will be launched in the New Year. We will be looking to expand our customer base as well as the range of products and services we can provide. So if you are looking for a new website, brochures, business cards, flyers, posters, booklets etc please give us a call!
