A Better World?

16/11/2018

We’re very excited to share the creative we designed for the National Library of Scotland’s new exhibition, “A Better World?” exploring life in Scotland after the First World War. We took inspiration from the illustrated 1920s posters in the Library’s collections to produce this colourful design.

A new, bold design for Eden Court

14/09/2018

This year Hillside had the opportunity to give Eden Court Theatre and Cinema a fresh new look for their brochure, and we’re delighted to finally be able to share it! It’s a bold departure from the previous brochure – now a biannual release rather than three times a year, it is twice the length as before. 

This new design is a simplification; the contents page – once a listing of every show – has been stripped down to the basics, ticket information has been reduced, shows are listed chronologically rather than by genre. Each month has its own section, beginning with a bold opening spread and tidbit of information about Eden Court. These are followed by some highlighted shows, which get more space. Covering six months of performances, we aimed to develop a design with an extended shelf life. See the full brochure here.

 

SIS Ventures

This month we’ve given a visual identity to a new project from our regular client Social Investment Scotland; the SIS Ventures. The purpose of this fund is to support social entrepreneurs to create and sustain employment opportunities, improve health and fitness, support the homeless and those marginalised within our local communities; all of these activities which are helping shape more vibrant and cohesive communities in Scotland.

ONFife event brochure

09/04/2018

Our latest design project is a full revamp of the seasonal event brochure for Fife Cultural Trust, which we successfully tendered for in March. An insightful and rewarding design process, working with some great people in Kirkcaldy. We have developed a brand new layout and colour scheme, and reinvented the ON logo with a bright and inviting floral font cover for the summer issue.

Forged in the Fort

10/02/2018

The 2018 identity and website for Fort William MTB World Cup is now live! The design is inspired by constructivist posters and references the industrial heritage of Scotland, and sends a clear message that Fort William is the place where bike legends are made!

Cheers to Rabbie!

A contemporary celebration of the life and work of Scotland’s national poet Robert Burns took place in Edinburgh 25-27 January  http://www.redredrosestreet.co.uk

A wonderful festival that we’re thrilled to work with! In addition to the overall look and feel we developed a set of illustrations to some of Robert Burns’ poems, for a family trail in Rose Street.

For ice cream lovers

17/01/2018

We started the year with a refreshing logo design project for Bon Bon, a start-up geleteria in Leith. The client wanted to communicate a mix of ‘Italian Scottish tastyness’ and we came up with a Highland Cow ice cream. Yum!
