Earlier this year, we worked with David Harrison Ltd of Peebles, the 90 year old car dealership based in Borders and specialising in Ford. A well-known name across the industry in Scotland, the guys were keen to keep the goodwill associated with it, but modernise for the 21st century, in line with their marketing strategy. So, we revised the name to ‘Harrisons’, created a new, clean identity and are now delighted to be working with the team on various items in the marketing folio. On another note, they may have beaten Team39 at the karting but next year the gloves are off and it’ll be Clear and Present Danger with lightsabers ahoy… (sorry! – ed).
We’ve been working with Fife-based The Image Academy on refreshing their branding. These guys provide top-quality online training for budding photographers and have clients all over the world. The new branding has been applied to their training material. Check them out on Facebook for course promotions and lovely pics!
To infinity and beyond!
It wouldn’t surprise us if ion beams were something to do with Buzz Lightyear, such is our knowledge of the highly technical work of Ion Beam Services, a French technology company with an office in Bathgate whose newly-designed website we recently launched. Featuring a product catalogue and secure client log in area (not to mention a blisteringly sleek design, natch), we’ve given Ion Beam’s web presence a new lease of life befitting its role in the world of semiconductors.

39steps were approached again this year to create Social Investment Scotlands’ Social Impact Report. As with last year this was to report research data and to be designed in a style which was clear and simple to understand. This was accomplished by the use of bright, bold infographics while working within the established SIS brand guidelines. The Report was launched by John Swinney MSP at an event held in Summerhall, Edinburgh.
Our 2013 Social Impact Report was SIS’s first attempt at illustrating what is quite dense information in an infographic style and 39Steps creatively and tirelessly helped us along on our journey and kept to our tight timeline for production. Our report was launched at our AGM in September and the feedback has been one of unanimous praise from all our stakeholders. 39Steps made the process one of collaboration and nothing was too much trouble. So thank you all and roll on next years report!

Crieff-based Blairmore Farm & Estate commissioned 39steps to create an evocative brand identity for this lovely farm retreat. Blairmore now has 2 Clydesdales, a rare breed of Highland coos, copious chickens and plans for more furry friends! Taking a cue from the coos (see what we did there?!), the identity uses stylised horns and a classic typeface to capture the rural, yet quality feel of Blairmore. Next up – website and literature! ‘West Cottage’ is already available visitors – contact Ailsa Clark to book your wintry weekend and check out their Facebook page for fun at the farm!
