It was party time at Real Fusion as Plymouth’s top web & graphic design agency held an office warming at its new home.

The Real Fusion team has now relocated to new, larger office space at 5 Research Way at Plymouth Science Park to better accommodate recent, new staff appointments.

A number of clients joined in the celebrations, among them Darren Lawson, Managing Director of Plymouth estate agents Mansbridge Balment.

As Real Fusion was celebrating its office move, Darren was very much in the news spotlight as local print and broadcast media clamoured to interview him following a news release from the agency’s PR team (the BBC even rang the office during the event to ask after him).

Darren announced his intention to take part in next month’s Plymouth 10K road race, less than 12 months after he suffered terrible head injuries in a skiing accident in France while he was on holiday with his two sons.

The Real Fusion news release sparked huge media interest and Darren’s story featured heavily in the Plymouth Herald, on local radio and he did a TV slot on the BBC South West’s flagship news programme Spotlight.

It was also an opportunity for Darren to promote Mansbridge Balment’s sponsorship package that has helped to save the race. A keen financial supporter of the event for the past three years, the estate agency has joined forces with Nigel Rowe and the Run Plymouth team to resurrect the event as Britain’s Ocean City 10K.

This year’s run had been cancelled in the face of increasing costs, but Darren and the rest of the Mansbridge Balment management team were determined to find a way for it to go ahead.

Real Fusion Director Justin Smith said: “We were delighted Darren could join us to celebrate our office move and it was good to see he is making such amazing progress since the accident.

“It was also great that our PR team could help raise the profile of Mansbridge Balment’s generous sponsorship deal to help save what is one of Plymouth’s key annual running events.”  

Our new address is: Unit 3, 5 Research Way, Plymouth Science Park, PL6 8BT.
