The agency also reported a 20% growth in gross revenues to £250,000 over the same time period. 

Blackberry Productions recently won two new public sector contracts and cites a ‘steady increase in business’ over the past year as a reason for the growth. This year has also seen the agency recruit two new members of staff and move to larger office premises in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

Director Jackie Butler said: "We have a ten-year plan that is based on steady and consistent growth rather than overnight success. Client prospects are carefully selected by the new business team to ensure a close fit with our values and approach to business. For the next 12 months we have set our sights on growing sales to £1m, keeping a careful eye on maintaining healthy margins to enable us to continue to invest in our team and the business."
