Stirling: Alive with Scotland Launch

Event launch

Wednesday 8th March saw the launch of the new brand and marketing campaign for the Stirling area, Stirling: Alive with Scotland, designed and developed by Maguires.

The campaign illustrates that Stirling is a place where you can find all that is good about Scotland, capturing its vibrancy, history, energy and the opportunities it offers.

The campaign was launched by Councillor Johanna Boyd at a prestigious event hosted by the city’s historic Tolbooth, with the brand being unveiled via a 3 minute short film showcasing the Stirling proposition:

The brand was developed and refined following an extensive 3 month consultation process, where feedback was gathered from key stakeholders and residents. This process covered both city centre and rural areas, stretching from Crianlarich and Aberfoyle, to Dunblane, Bannockburn and Callander.

Throughout the launch evening, film footage was projected onto the castle rock of Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and the new Stirling Digital Hub.

The launch evening was a huge success and the first stage of a long term branding and communications initiative in partnership with Stirling Council.



Welcome Stirling Council!

We’re Hiring!

Maguires are growing and on the hunt for a highly talented and experienced designer to work alongside our merry bunch. Check out our jobs section for more info.

All the best Danny!

It’s with a heavy heart and tears in our collective eyes that we say goodbye to Danny our web developer as a full time employee. Danny is diversifying his skill set in the City of Discovery and goes with all our best wishes. He joined Maguires in 2013 and has subsequently left the web division in rude health, having formed excellent working relationships with all our digital clients. He also formed the backbone of our studio ‘tea’ triumvirate, slurping his way through 5 or 6 large cups a day. Danny’s gregarious personality, dry sense of humour and vast knowledge of all things web will be missed.

Fear not though, our digital and web offering will not change. Maguires Online will now be based on the ability to utilise a number of highly skilled web developers to work with us on a project specific basis, with all day to day queries being handled through the [email protected] email address. This will provide us with the experience and skills required to move the agency forward, grow our web division and provide a first class service for all our clients.



Massive thanks to all who popped down to our wee shindig last night, hopefully there’s not too many sore heads this morning (well, not as many as in here anyway) and everyone had a pleasant evening in the sunshine. Have a wee cup of tea and a cupcake to shake the cob webs away 😉

Isléna – comida hermosa!

Huge thanks to Darren and all the Isléna team for providing such fantastic canapés for our soiree. Safe to say the spirit of Ibiza is alive and kicking in the Merchant City!
