Edinburgh-based creative studio, 39steps, has been appointed to redesign and build the website for Children in Scotland, the membership organisation for all those working with children and their families. With an updated website, Children in Scotland is looking to increase awareness of their work and the resources available to members and the wider children’s sector, including updates on policy and research plus access to quality events, training and publications. The site’s interactivity will enable members to review and comment on the issues affecting them, creating a two-way conversation that can help deliver positive outcomes for children, young people and their families.
Jacqueline Cassidy, Children in Scotland’s Head of Communications, said: ” We are delighted to be working with 39steps who are able to bring together the wide portfolio of skills necessary to ensure our website is able to meet the needs of our members and the children’s sector, including project management, programming and design expertise.”
Julie Diver, Managing Director of 39steps, commented: “Children in Scotland is committed to ensuring the online platform delivers real results for members, who need to be kept up-to-date with all aspects of working with children across Scotland. We’re delighted to be working with such an enthusiastic and diverse team. The project is more than simply updating an existing website and we’re relishing the challenge.”
Children in Scotland’s flagship event is the annual conference happening on the 1st and 2nd of November 2012 in Fife.

Social Investment Scotland (SIS) has been helping social enterprises, community groups and individuals to create growth in their communities via all kinds of projects over the last decade. Following on from the rebrand and the web redesign, we took evaluated data from our pals at FMR Research and converted it into an easy-to-digest Social Impact Report, in time for SIS’ launch at Our Dynamic Earth. A tactile piece printed on uncoated stock, the coloured graphs pop out and an extended version can be downloaded from the website along with featured case studies.
Glasgow-based Cameron Interiors has called on some Team39 magic to tighten up their brand, van livery and brochureware. Providing quality and tailor-made living spaces, Cameron Interiors has been around for 3 decades and built up a great reputation for end-to-end service. Their Edinburgh studio is the Scottish flagship store for Bulthaup (v posh German kitchens) and we’ve been salivating over the sleekness of the gadgets therein. Can’t wait to get our hands on all their fab pictures of glam kitchen and bedroom installations!
We’ve been appointed to create the new website for the Scottish Acoustic Marine Mammal Observatory, part of St Andrews University. The site will show cool graphs on the movements of marine mammals from very clever buoys set strategically around our shores. This is on the back of work we’ve done for SMRU Ltd, for their flagship product, PAMBuoy(R). Welcome aboard the good ship 39, SAMMO!
