What We Do
Producing beautiful design and engaging experiences that help bring joy to everyday lives.
Hillside is a highly regarded design agency with more than 25 years of experience in the creative industry. We work across print and digital spaces, offering a range of services from brand development and creative campaigns, to motion graphics and website development.
Design for culture and the arts has always been the backbone of our business, having had the pleasure of working with a range of exciting clients from across Scotland and beyond. We help to launch start-ups, promote events, develop corporate communication, and ultimately assist businesses achieve goals through design.
We act with care and responsibility, considering how our actions may impact the environment and those around us. Hillside therefore strives to reduce the energy and resources required for delivering each project, now applying this thinking to our digital projects more than ever. Take a look at our Environmental Policy for more info.
From branding and online promotional materials, to printed brochures and reports, Hillside collaborates closely with our clients to capture the essence of their organisation and project requirements.
Our key aim is to provide clarity through creativity, producing memorable communication that successfully connects with audiences. If we can spread a bit of joy whilst doing this also, then that’s a bonus!
Digital Design & Development
Hillside develops predominantly with WordPress, a CMS that we’ve enjoyed using for over a decade. We approach each build with an open mind, adapting as required to meet our client’s needs and discussing in plain English throughout, using visual tools to aid communication during the early stages, so to encourage feedback.
Our ethos is to keep things light on their feet, building as much in-house as appropriate. Focus lies primarily on usability, performance and longevity, with lightweight frameworks developed around custom-made designs that are a pleasure to use and simple to update.
We work with a wide range of clients, from established organisations to independent start-ups.
