SIS Ventures

Visual identity

In 2018, a new mission-led investment venture aimed at stimulating social entrepreneurship in Scotland was launched by Social Investment Scotland. SIS Ventures ensures that social and financial success go hand-in-hand by investing for growth in high-impact organisations, driving positive impact to local communities.

We were asked to design a logo that would appeal to a young, ambitious and forward thinking audience. The visual identity is modern, clean and corporate, with an understated colour palette for a sophisticated finish. As well as delivering the overall identity and associated printed collateral and digital content, we designed and developed the website.

SIS Ventures has very quickly established itself as one of the leading impact investors in the UK.

“Hillside took our brief and presented us with a creative interpretation of our requirements.

As a financial organisation, it can be difficult to get our message across in an engaging way, yet Hillside’s design has allowed us to present our proposition in a compelling way.

Hillside shared their ideas, explaining how best to communicate our brand whilst ensuring that we were on board throughout the process”.
