Per Gessle’s web design company lays off employees
STOCKHOLM - The web design company Famestudios, owned in part by Per Gessle along with Bonnier, "IT-Guru" Christer Sturmark, and ABBA's Björn Ulvaeus, has fired their project managers and programmers. The reason is, according to the company's CEO, Ludvig Werner, an isolation of core business.
"We won't manage the web productions ourselves anymore but outsource it to other companies. We will focus entirely on digital events," says Ludvig Werner to Dagens Media, a trade publication.
In this area of digital events, Famestudios offers, among other things, consultative services for interactive events that can be connected to physical events.
Famestudios earned a modest 1.5 million Swedish crowns last year, while they, at the same time, lost 6 million.
Among their clients are the record companies behind Roxette and ABBA, whose official sites are designed by Famestudios.
