Glasgow design agency hires new creative director
November 23, 2009 by Michael
Glasgow print design company, ‘O Street’, has hired Ed Watt as its new creative director. Ed Watt has previously run his own Glasgow print design agency for three years, ‘Design-Ed’.
O Street is very pleased with the appointment, believing that Ed Watt will be a valuable asset to their Glasgow print design agency. David Freer, the co-founder of O Street, said about the appointment of Ed Watt:
We interviewed a lot of great designers, but Ed’s proven track record of managing his own agency and his digital and Ping Pong skills made him a perfect choice.
In addition to appointing Ed Watt as their new creative director, O Street also unveiled their new website. Their new website includes an ecommerce shop and a TV and radio station.
Neil Wallace, the co-founder of Glasgow based O Street, added about their new website design:
The design is much cleaner and fresher than our previous site. We wanted to draw more attention to the work, so there is a lot of clean white space and bold colour imagery.
On O Street’s new website, products bearing print designs from the Glasgow firm can be purchased online. These products include a new range of skateboards that feature prints of O Street’s designs. The skateboards were co-design with Will Thornton and ShowPony. The video section of O Street’s website even features video clips of the team attempting to skateboard on their new products.
The designs can also be purchased on T-Shirts.
