New Look for Children’s Charity, SPIFOX

Tuesday, Nov. 5th 2013

39steps was approached by Scottish Children’s Charity, SPIFOX, to create a new Identity, coinciding with its 30th Anniversary in 2013. SPIFOX (Scottish Property Industry’s Festival of Xmas) is recognised and supported by individuals and organisations within the Scottish Property Industry, it’s main aim being to raise money for Scottish Children’s Charities, through events hosted not only at Xmas but throughout the year. The charity was looking to develop a simple logo that reflected, not only, the professionalism of the property industry, but also the fun aspect of being involved with the charity, it’s events and of course the Children who benefit from it’s efforts. With the use of both colour and texture, the new logo gradually evolves from smooth and corporate, through to friendly and colourful  - a successful combination of both professionalism and fun, we think!

’39Steps have supported SPIFOX since 2002. In that time they have provided good humoured and unflappable support in the production of the charity’s annual Christmas Concert programme, developing it from a home spun, black and white offering to the four colour, bound, professional document that it is today – something that is much admired by the many 100s of individuals who attend this annual Yuletide event. It followed therefore that, when contemplating an update to the identity, the trustees would turn to 39Steps for their creativity, institutional knowledge and cost effective implementation. The team grasped the brief and produced an updated and modern identity that clearly reflects the values and proposition of the Charity. The new logo highlights the professionalism of the property industry coupled with childlike influences bearing witness to those for whom SPIFOX works. It is often difficult to work with ‘committees’ but the team at 39Steps were exemplary in their efforts to juggle the views of many and create a new logo that will not only take SPIFOX into the future but one too that is truly representative of the charity and all that we do.’

team39 go ape!

Friday, Sep. 6th 2013

Team39 ventured out to play in late July, down to Glentress to try out the Go Ape circuit. It’s pretty safe to say that all 5 were suitably terrified to a greater (Jules) or lesser (John) degree! The whole challenging adventure culminated in a seriously long and (flippin’ high) death slide, which took our intrepid Steppers a few moments to compose themselves with some self-talk before launching into the unknown! Great time had by all, and so proud we made it to the end.

Check out our videos below (any shaking is due to camera shudder and not knees, you understand!) and the photos on our Facebook page.

Crosbie Matthew brand revamp

Thursday, Sep. 5th 2013

We are delighted to have been appointed by Fife-based funeral directors Crosbie Matthew to revamp their brand, website and subsequent brochureware. Established in 1939, Crosbie Matthew moved into larger premises and increased local market share, and now it’s time for evolution. Furthering our niche in the funeral sector (yes, funeral firms also need to promote themselves!), we’re really look forward to working with such a nice bunch of people.
