A NEW creative and web agency is opening its doors in Bolton.

EQ, an offshoot of Bring Digital, will occupy premises at the Atria building in Spa Road, boasting clients including Rossendale-based shoe giant Wynsors and SpaMedica.

Drshna Vara, a former web head at Bring, will oversee the eight-string outfit, which takes its name from the system used to measure emotional intelligence.

Mr Vara said: "Having provided a creative and web support function for Bring Digital for the last five years, we're excited to step out on our own, whilst still enjoying the infrastructure and support of Bring Digital and the group.

"I have a strong vision for the growth and development of the agency, and I’m supported by an incredibly talented team."

David Ingram, owner of Bring's parent company BDH Ventures, added: "This is an exciting opportunity for a talented team of creative and technical staff to create a unique service proposition under a fresh new brand.

"The board and I have full faith that Drshna and her team will be able to make a huge impact on the market and provide clients with a truly exceptional creative and web partnership."
