Bagging Scotland is a partnership utilising creative talent and technical skill, based in Scotland, to produce a tourism-based platform to help promote Scotland, both to foreigners and it’s native people.
Victor Brierley; Co-Founder
Victor is the driving force behind Bagging Scotland and brings 25 years experience in some of the UK’s best marketing consultancies. He cut his teeth in Edinburgh’s largest Advertising agency and went on to work as Account Director with numerous ‘blue chip’ World brands including major Scotch whisky brands and the world’s largest financial organisations.
For 6 years he was a PR ‘face’ for the multi award-winning Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow. He devised successful marketing campaigns and generated mountains of nationwide publicity for some of the Country’s largest and most successful Business and Consumer events.
As a passionate Scot, Victor felt his needs weren’t being met by the crop of existing websites around. He wanted more. He wanted to chat, create, compare, learn from others’ mistakes and be advised of the ‘real’ Scotland, not the glossy, over-airbrushed, politically-neutered pastiche presented to him by ‘certain organisations’.
Ramsay MacFarlane; Co-Founder
Ramsay is the creative and technical force behind Bagging Scotland. He’s a First-Class Honours Graduate in Applied Graphic Technology and Multimedia from Glasgow Caledonian University, who took the highly ambitious step of setting up his own business directly after leaving formal education.
He has quickly embraced the digital and business landscape and already has created a number of tourism-based websites for clients. His speciality is ‘joining-up’ technologies to capitalise on the growing desire for ‘the moving image’ in websites.
As well as web design and development, Ramsay also has a strong client portfolio in various other creative sectors including; branding and logo development, photography and video production. He’s also worked with a number of top design agencies and creative individuals in his so far short, fast-paced career.
