About SHINE

Founded in 1999 out of frustration and set up with a mission to ‘deliver a better creative experience to clients’ we have grown slowly and steadily over the years from our first client meeting in April 1999 to the team that we have now working with our large bank of clients across the UK.  From our first 6gb Apple Mac G3 to the full studio of beautiful apple equipment and lovely staff (don’t get them mixed up) we have built a strong reputation for excellent creativity and client service.

Our Studio

Our offices in St Vincent Street Glasgow are just next to the world famous King Tuts Wah-Wah Hut music venue.  We have been in these premises since 2009 and these are the fifth offices we have had in our history.  An abundance of apple equipment, a spectacular coffee machine, a huge pile of creativity.  Our London office is a serviced space allowing us to work closer with our clients in the big smoke and not rely on Starbucks for wifi.

Our Clients

We are proud to work with some incredible clients who work in forward thinking businesses.  Our clients range geographically from the Highlands of Scotland to South London and many places in-between.  We work closely with organisations ranging in size from two person companies up to organisation of over 4,000 employees.  One client we have been working with since way back in May 1999.

We recently asked SHINE to develop a new website and a user-friendly format was imperative. Craig and Peter were excellent from the outset and we have ended up with a superb website that really showcases our product.

Dan and Rohaise, Owners

Working with SHINE isn’t just about the colour of your logo or a shiny new website. They take the time to find out who you are. Within a few weeks we saw real results, with an increase in enquiries. SHINE’s work with us has renewed a sense of pride within our organization. The last few months have been the beginning of a relationship; not the end of a contract.

Annie Keys, Communications & Marketing Officer

"SHINE helped Cancer Support Scotland create an all-encompassing fundraising booklet. Very early on SHINE understood our requirements and produced something that Cancer Support Scotland can be proud of."

Colin Graham, Director

"Our work needs to be turned around within tight deadlines. They make the whole process that little bit easier for me. They’re a great bunch to work with and I can always rely on them to deliver."

Fiona MacFarlane, Communications Manager

"SHINE is every bit the ‘exceptional creative resource’ they claim to be. They worked very closely with us to ensure every aspect of our rebrand was delivered on time and with creative solutions that helped us develop and grow our reputation in the events industry."

Adam Cameron, Business Manager

"Overall, the project has been a huge success. The brand has been so widely accepted. I knew after our meeting in Abington that you were definitely the company I wanted to work with. I can honestly say that the end result has far exceeded my expectations."

Sam Davies, National Head of Marketing

"SHINE is an imaginative and responsive agency for traditional and online design. The team quickly understood our needs and delivered a broad project in a tight timeframe. We’re delighted with our refreshed brand identity, our new website and supporting collateral."

Tom Ellis, Managing Director

"SHINE’s innovative design work has transported our project into a league of its own. They understood our brief and effortlessly handled our content with little direction needed. Best of all, our audience have responded to our new look with enthusiasm. IMRG would recommend SHINE as a first choice to anyone."

Katie Stevens, Cross-Border Projects Manager

"Having worked with SHINE for 4 years, our close relationship meant they were an obvious choice when it came to re-evaluating our website and online strategy. We are delighted with our new site and have been getting great feedback. SHINE have made managing the site so much easier and we have already started working on some new marketing projects which will be rolled out later this year."

Fiona MacDonald,

"Just a quick note to let you know that we have received the postal invites this afternoon. One word… Superb! Really impressed with them and I think they are the best yet."

Peter Gough, Director

"We had worked with SHINE on a few marketing projects so it seemed a natural step to involve them in the re-branding of Turnkey. SHINE are a great creative team to work with and we are very pleased with the result."

Tony Wood, Managing Director
