Founded by a team of senior, award-winning creatives, Sixtythree provides agile, joined up thinking and can work alongside your creative department or be used as a standalone service. We’re ideas people first, and then a copywriter, art director, designer, responsive digital designer, and strategic planner second.
And there are only two of us.

About us

Doug Cook Art Director

Doug Cook

Creative Director of everything from traditional advertising agencies to SEO optimisation specialists, and most recently, Head of Creative at STV, Doug is one of Scotland’s most experienced and talented creatives. Over the years he’s worked on a huge range of private sector clients including Toyota and Canon bringing clarity, insight and award-winning inspiration to every project. A keen musician, Doug has almost as many guitars as he does wide ranging and diverse marketing skills. In short – and he’s actually very tall - his enthusiasm, judgement and abilities are without equal. And no, he’s not the one writing this.

A threesixty service

Creative thinking

From a simple leaflet to a multimedia TV, radio, online and social media campaign, everything works harder with a great idea at its core.

Copywriting

From flowing prose to pithy headlines in press ads, digital campaigns, brochures and websites, Sixtythree can restructure twenty-six letters with remarkable prowess.

Art direction

Getting a creative thought to work in any creative medium, be it digital, print or broadcast, is no small task. We guess that’s why it’s called an art.

Design

Great design lifts anything from a simple logo to an entire corporate identity, and ensures all communication is clear and effective.

Strategy

If you don’t get the thinking behind the thinking right, your beautiful campaign will be built on quicksand.

Digital

From emails to animation, we can do much of the work in-house, keeping creative integrity and seamless thinking across everything.
