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!

Are you into hard death metal music or just like to spend your weekends wondering around Ikea? This game’ll test your knowledge.
John has been keeping a low profile of late. With the nights drawing in and the temperature plummeting, his time out biking is dwindling fast. This came to a head the other weekend when he was biking in the borders. After three hours of freezing, windy conditions, getting soaked to the skin and surviving a spectacular crash on the way down, it was the final straw! He’s resolved to find a more relaxing activity for the Winter!
On the up side he did manage to escape for a long weekend to Paris. Three days of sightseeing, visiting galleries and sampling the fine Parisian cuisine was just what the Doctor ordered. Oh, and he got engaged to the long suffering Nicole. Best wishes from Team39!
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!
