Birmingham-based digital consultancy Clusta has expanded to the US with the opening of an office in Los Angeles.
Clusta recently worked with Alexandre Parré on the Plus International Design Festival 07.
Headed by Clusta’s vice-president of sales and marketing Sarah Kerry, the office is located in Santa Monica and offers services including graphic design, 3D animation, branding, Web design, video and post-production.
‘We were receiving a high number of enquiries from US companies and individuals interested in our work or seeking to employ our services,’ says Kerry. ‘We see the US as a great opportunity for growth and feel that our style of design and our digital capabilities are much needed on the West Coast, the centre for entertainment and technology.’
Additionally, Clusta LA will provide design services and production consultancy free of charge to Hollywood Arts, an arts training and therapy programme that provides opportunities for at-risk, homeless and runaway youths.
Clusta’s UK clients include Smirnoff, Umbro, Maxtor, Visa, Wrigleys and Kellogg’s.
