I'm a graphic designer based in Edinburgh, with over sixteen years of experience working in identity, print, online and everything in-between.


I design identities for organisations, projects and campaigns of all shapes and sizes. Creating solutions that are flexible, functional and in tune with audiences.


There's so much that goes into a print run – paper choice, print processes, finding the ideal format, choosing the right printer, keeping things cost effective, and getting the artwork just right.

I regularly work on all sorts of print runs, from 300 luxury invitations, to 30,000 festival programmes.


The online world is constantly evolving but some things never change – good design helps to elevate brands and engage audiences, whether it's through advertising, social media or a website.

I can work with a developer to bring online projects to life, and even build websites myself (when it makes sense to do so).


Creative, instructional or diagrammatic; illustrations and pictograms can really bring a project to life, enhance understanding and communicate a feeling.

I often provide illustrated solutions myself, or I can help find the right illustrator for a particular job.


Good typefaces are great to work with, but I also love creating bespoke typographic solutions – giving identities, projects and campaigns their own individual look and feel.

About me:
Martin Baillie

point ;)

Based in Edinburgh. Made in Dundee.

I'm a graphic designer who believes in effective and engaging communication. A lot of my work is in the cultural sector, which I really enjoy, but I also love to help businesses grow.

I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2007 and have been working in design ever since, at first in agencies and now in my own practice (which has been running for seven years now).

If you'd like to discuss a potential project please don't hesitate to get in touch…

"Martin has worked with us from the beginning. He has played an essential role in helping develop our visual tone of voice, bringing a wonderfully unique approach to the range of projects from community engagement to exhibition design, fundraising materials to marketing collateral. His attention to the most beautiful detail and ability to bring an extremely high level of imagination and creativity to the most complex of briefs is invaluable. It’s unusual to find a designer who can consistently deliver to this level of quality, for such a variety of audiences and outputs. One of the most exciting designers in Scotland today, I would recommend him in an instant."
