It’s been 6 months since we moved to Glasgow city centre. Time has flown by. It's been a busy, but great 6 months. The move to Glasgow had been on the cards for sometime. After spending a year in Thornliebank, then a year and a half in East Kilbride on the outskirts of Glasgow, we had to think about the shape of the business in the next 5-10 years, what clients we want to work with, where they are and what...

We’ve been working with Fair Deal for a couple of years now on a variety of projects. From designing and printing leaflets that enhances their brand and enables them to talk to specific target audiences, interviewing staff to promote social care as a career and filming footage of their various activities including their ‘Help Yourself Grow’ gardening project. We worked alongside their management team to capture the work of Fair Deal with the aim of attracting new people to the...

  We love working with businesses owners that have a real passion for what it is they do. We were approached to produce a brand and website for Mind Marvels, a Lanarkshire based business teaching young people how to manage their emotional health and wellbeing, linked to Curriculum for Excellence and the NHS 5 Steps to Mental Wellbeing (move, connect, learn, be kind and mindful). Mind Marvels sessions allow young people to feel increased confidence as they learn calming strategies to...

In August 2009 a friend of mine asked me to design a logo for a sports club. Up until this point the thought of having my own business was a nice idea, but it was just that, an idea. When I was asked “who do I make the cheque payable to?” I delayed answering for a few hours whilst I pulled on my 'big boy pants' and headed for my bank to open up a business account. The day I...

We have been very privileged to work for Interfaith Scotland for a number of years. Last year we were asked to refresh their brand and redesign their annual newsletter. We've just taken receipt of the second issue that we've worked on, and we couldn't be prouder of it! Interfaith Scotland is the national interfaith organisation for Scotland. They are a charity specialising in promoting and facilitating constructive engagement between different faith and belief communities across Scotland. They look to achieve this...

I’ve never wanted to rant about other businesses, it’s not really my place to tell other design businesses how to portray themselves, but a couple of pointers for people who are thinking about selecting a design agency. Firstly, never trust a company that doesn’t actually display any of their work. As a design agency, your work should speak volumes about the standard that you work at. It’s easier than ever to showcase your work, with a variety of platforms to promote...

Our Work for South Lanarkshire Carers Network We’ve been very lucky to work with the lovely team at South Lanarkshire Carers Network for the past couple of years.

They work to empower Carers with knowledge and information that will allow them to make informed choices about available known services....

We were recently contacted by the guys at The Orry Mill, a new Wool Yarn and Haberdashery shop in Eaglesham. Owned by Thilde Folke Olsen, The Orry Mill offers everything the avid knitter would need as well as a selection of gifts and workshops and classes for anyone who would like to give knitting and crocheting a go. The name ‘The Orry Mill’ refers to the open space in Eaglesham known as ‘The Orry’ (Old Scots for 'area') in which there are the...

We’ve just taken delivery of Flourish, the annual update of Interfaith Glasgow. This is the second issue that we’ve had the privilege of designing for one of our long standing clients. This issue builds on the design style established in the first issue with a few minor tweaks. We must say that we’re over the moon with the finished product… and more importantly, so is our client!...
