Merged Mashbo Studio aims to concentrate on third sector.
TWO web design and marketing agencies have merged to create a company focusing on charities and social enterprises.
It's About Websites (IAW) and Telanorth, both based in Liverpool, have joined forces to create Studio Mashbo.
The new agency plans to develop digital offerings aimed at helping third sector organisations to promote themselves and collect money online. The Telanorth team is moving into IAW's studio in the Ropewalks.

IAW has worked with organisations including Everton FC, Liverpool John Moores University and broadcaster RTE.
Telanorth was set up by Steve Todd in August, 2009. Liam Potter joined two months later as creative director.
The company focused on designing, developing and delivering custom online and mobile applications and has worked with the University of Liverpool, Democratic Audit and Queen Mary, University of London, Mr Sherratt said: "Myself and Paul are looking forward to the next stage of our business's development.
"The nice part of this move brings back together some of the key people that we have worked with during our time working for Rippleffect before for ming IAW, back in November, 2007.
"We have set our targets high and we aim to deliver on these expectations internally and with our clients."
Mr Court said: "We''re looking forward to continuing our growth developing solutions that help charities and good causes, as we feel this is a sector that needs some extra guidance and attention.
