No, it’s not another political blog post! 39steps recently revamped the well-known Running Guides to their new name, RunABC. With a fresh new masthead, resized format and a flexible template for RunABC’s talented Amy to work with, the guides made their maiden appearance at the London Marathon. A great project to work on!

“As a magazine publisher looking to rebrand an existing title that was overdue a ‘new look’, working with 39steps was a very productive experience. The team at 39steps was easy to work with. They developed our original brief and worked closely with us to create a new magazine format we were happy with. They brought flair, imagination and style to the project and were very easy to work with, discussing our requirements and helping us to find solutions to problems we encountered.

I would happily recommend 39steps for magazine and newsletter design and I’m available to provide feedback on our own experiences working with Julie, John and the rest of the team.”

William Purves has gone mobile

27th Feb 2015

We recently updated the William Purves website — first designed and built by us in 2011 — using responsive design to adapt to multiple screen sizes (desktop computers, tablets, and smartphones). Our original design held up well in the fast-paced world of web design, so bringing it up to date with contemporary design and coding techniques was a breeze.
