2bcreative is a Scottish based design company which was formed in 1996.


I have built a company that is dynamic and ambitious. A company that can complement its design skills with the support of a network of other experts ranging from PR consultants, photographers, signage guys, printers and IT specialists.

I have completed major projects for companies such as Inverness Airport, North Coast 500, North East 250, Highland Fuels, MOWI, NHS Highland, Jacobite Cruises, HIE, SNH, RBS, Cairngorm National Park, Moray Offshore, Calcivis and many more.

I would love to add you to our list of fantastic clients, so if you have a project in mind - give me a shout. I love a challenge!




John Young

Managing Director

I have owned 2bcreative since 1996 and I have a wide-range of experience in design for physical and virtual environments and relish the diverse challenges our clients present through their design projects. I follow an interactive and collaborative working process, helping to build a shared understanding of project requirements and deliver creative, practical solutions to help my clients achieve their objectives.


I have over 35 years’ experience in the design industry and have worked on projects across the UK and internationally delivering creative solutions to clients. I specialise in; website design, brand guidelines, brand strategy, information design, urban design, wayfinding, graphic design, new media design, public and community relations.

Crucial to the success of my work is an understanding of the end-users needs and I have the ability to convey complex ideas and information with clarity and simplicity.


I am a passionate photographer and regularly use my own images in my work. I fully understand lighting and composition especially for websites and print.
