About us.

Our team.

Keith McQuade
Managing Director

Keith is our Managing Director and head of strategy. Equal parts designer and tactician, he’s all about finding a brand’s purpose, then joining the dots between strategy and creative. Keith has worked with the likes of Whyte & Mackay, Scottish Enterprise, NHS Scotland, Highland Spring & RBS.

Craig Bickett
Creative Director

Craig is our Creative Director and brand-building powerhouse. He works closely with clients to help identify their goals and devise work that helps reach them. And nothing leaves the studio without his say so. Craig’s brand experience includes Reebok, the University of Edinburgh, Sony PlayStation and Shelter Scotland.

Questions and answers.

There will be lots of questions.

Who are you? Where do you fit in? What do you need? And how can we best help? It takes time to work it all out and the guts to break a few rules along the way. But if you’re up for it, we really should talk.

First, you might have a few questions of your own, like…

What does Sevenfive do exactly?

We break our work into three main areas: Strategy & marketing, Brand development, and Design & content. Basically, everything you need to define where your brand fits in, what you need to say and how to say it. From plotting your course, through to brand identity, design and production – on and offline.

We already have a brand, so why do we need you?

Wherever you appear, is it unmistakably you? Do you stand out amongst your competitors for all the right reasons? Is there a golden thread running through everything, from the colour of the chairs in reception, to the message on your answer machine? Do you have all the tools you need, to go to the next level? If the answer to any of these questions is ‘err, no, maybe’, you definitely need us.

Is now the time for change?

The first step is admitting that, like it or not, change happens. Recognising when competitors are muscling in with new ideas. Or that the energy has dropped in your business. Or you’ve lost sight of your goals. Yes, change can be painful, but it’s a necessity, and when you embrace it, it’s liberating. So, is it time for change? We bet you already know the answer.

Why should we work with Sevenfive?

Two words: ‘Strategy’ and ‘Creativity’. And fifty four more words: We’ll get to the heart of what your business is all about, to build a rock-solid strategy that everything else hangs on. Brand and marketing materials with meaning and purpose. Design with an edge – that not only looks good, but also works hard for your business. Seems like a good enough reason to us.

What's the first step?

It all starts with a good old-fashioned chat. Just call or drop us a line and tell us what you’re looking for, and we can get the ball rolling. Meanwhile, if you want to read more about how we do what we do, have a look at our design process.

Who we work with.

We’ve been doing our thing for decades. Working across a huge range of sectors, for all sorts of brands. Education, food and drink, healthcare, hospitality, leisure, manufacturing, public sector, sport, recruitment, telecoms… Any opportunity to build a great brand with decent people, who get the power of design – we’re in.
