Business federation manifesto in step with new corporate look

WITH the elections to the Scottish Parliament on the immediate horizon, the Scottish division of the Federation of Small Business has produced its own manifesto for the future – produced by an Edinburgh-based design agency.

The production of the manifesto follows on from the appointment of 39steps in autumn to re-design FSB Scotland’s corporate identity and the design of future corporate material.

Printed on 100 per cent recycled stock, the 20-page manifesto focuses on FSB Scotland’s recommendations for a more prosperous and fairer Scotland.

Says Andrew Watson, FSB Scotland spokesperson: “Speaking to people in media and political circles when it was published, it seems to have caught their attention. Eye-catching design and a clear layout helps us to communicate serious recommendations which will support businesses and grow the economy, and ensures we get our messages across to the people who matter.”

39steps was formed in October four years ago by Waseem Ashraf and Julie Diver. Providing a graphic and web design service, it has grown its client base from magazine publishers to start-ups, charities and a wide range of small-to-medium enterprises.
