We’ve added a third ‘LR’ to our team …


We’ve added a third ‘LR’ to our team with the appointment of Lorna Reid as Business Development Director. Lorna brings to the role a wealth of experience as a marketing professional. Her career has spanned 20 years in which time Lorna has worked with a number of leading businesses in Scotland and the UK.

Commenting on the role, Lorna said: “StudioLR has gone from strength to strength in recent years, establishing itself as a key player in the design world and this is definitely an exciting time to be coming on board. I’m looking forward to the challenges of developing the business.”

Lorna has a long history with StudioLR having provided business coaching for over ten years and was fundamental in helping its founder Lucy Richards make the transition from sole trader to limited company.

Lorna is the third LR in the team joining Lucy Richards, founder and original LR and Louise Robertson, recently appointed as a PR consultant.

Spreading the word that ‘good design can change the world’ at three key industry events


We’re providing speakers for three key industry events over the coming weeks on subjects which make up the core areas of our business – heritage, healthcare environments and internal communications.

The first of the three events is the Association for Heritage Interpretation’s (AHI) 40th anniversary conference, ‘Learning from the Past, Looking to the Future’ is taking place in Newbury from 21-23 October, Scott (Brand Strategy Director) will present ‘The Role of Enjoyment in Engagement’ at the event.

In November Lucy joins a host of prestigious speakers at the Scottish Health and Social Care Facilities Scotland’s annual conference in Perthshire. The conference will examine the Scottish Government’s vision, policies and priorities for the future while sharing best practice and innovation across the health and social care sector. Lucy will give a presentation titled Making People Feel Better – Innovative Visual Communication in Healthcare.

Finally, as part of the Institute of Internal Communications Scotland’s autumn series of events featuring internal comms-based case studies and best practice StudioLR will host Communication by Design on 10 November in Edinburgh.

If Carlsberg did meetings…

… they would end in a drive of this bad boy.




Mark and Andy finished a recent briefing meeting with a drive on the test track of a Terex Truck. These trucks, which are made in Scotland, are used in some of the world’s toughest terrains.

As part of our initial engagement process we work hard to really understand what makes an organisation tick (or in this case roar!). So after meeting the team we were invited to sample the product, which as you might imagine was great fun and a boy’s own dream come true.

Lots more to follow on this Experiential Design and VIP experience project.
