Brand for Growth

Brand for Growth is a yearly programme that provides fully funded rebrands to social enterprises that would significantly benefit from a new visual identity but lack the resources to finance it themselves. It has been successfully running since 2019.

Tailored for high-growth enterprises, the programme is funded by Bold Studio’s profits, the Scottish Government and a variety of private sponsors committed to the sector.

Creative Natives

Creative Natives is an employability scheme providing disadvantaged young people with access to the creative industry, from portfolio preparation to studio experience. We deliver it in partnership with Cyrenians, a Scottish homelessness charity.

Supporting the sector

Our combined expertise in design and the third-sector enables us to advance the social enterprise movement in a unique way, expanding people’s understanding of the trend towards mission-led work and raising the bar of non-profit design.

We endeavour to contribute our skills whenever we can, seeking opportunities to do so throughout the year alongside our client work. One of the key ways we deliver this is via the Social Enterprise Support Map, the key resource for both emerging and expanding social enterprises in Scotland.

Why work with a Social Enterprise?

By working with a social enterprise, you are working with a business that is driven by a purpose, not the bottom line.

We are driven by the pursuit of a more equitable economy and the belief that design has a role to play in enabling a fair and equal society to flourish.
