COPE Scotland Design Award Nomination

The Soapbox Design team were delighted to hear that an infographic created by one of our graphic designers Gary McCluskey on behalf of COPE Scotland was recently nominated for a design award.

We are thrilled that our client was so happy with the design and hope that we can continue to provide COPE with products that do justice to the incredibly important information they provide on mental health and wellbeing.

Who are COPE Scotland?

At Soapbox, it is our goal to use great design to help convey our clients’ messages in the most impactful way, and no-one has a more important message that COPE.

COPE Scotland are a charity based in Glasgow that helps to tackle health and social inequalities by providing invaluable safe care, wellbeing, and mental health advice.

All the information that they provide to people across the nation is based on the lived experiences of those who have experienced mental and emotional distress in their own lives.

They are constantly seeking new ways to produce tools and resources to spread these stories and reduce the negative impact of life challenges on the mental health of people and families across Scotland.

These messages are incredibly potent and important, and we take our role in presenting them in an engaging and easy to understand way that will attract as many eyes as possible incredibly seriously.

During our time working with COPE, we have produced a range of materials designed to maximise the impact of the incredibly powerful information gathered by COPE Scotland including booklets, postcards, affirmation cards, and infographics like the one mentioned above.

We couldn’t be happier that COPE have seen the benefit that great design can have on increasing exposure amongst a target audience and look forward to working together on further projects in the future.

As nice as being nominated for an award is, what matters most is that this is recognition that our designs are helping to spread the COPE message far and wide, something we are incredibly passionate about continuing to do in the future.

What was the Design?

The design nominated for the award was an infographic titled “Challenges on the sea of life” depicting some of the anchors that can help us all to hold fast and stay afloat when faced by the stormy waters of the sea of life.

This design is just one of the many graphic products we have produced for COPE that are used to help those who need it the most. 

We pride ourselves on creating stunning visual representations of our client’s ideas and transferring ideas from the mind to the page and are delighted that COPE believe we did so to such great effect when the ideas in question have so much value to so many.

At Soapbox, we know just how talented our team of graphic designers are, but it is always nice to see them get the recognition that they deserve from the outside world, especially when the focus of their work is such an important topic.

Being nominated for this award is a fantastic recognition of Gary’s expertise and skill as a graphic designer, something that we see on a daily basis here in the studio.

We look forward to continuing our relationship with COPE and continuing to find innovative ways to contribute to their goal of changing the world one postcard of hope at a time.


“COPE Scotland is about growing an idea, not an empire. Seeking to find new ways, working with the voices of lived experiences, partners and communities, to develop and offer tools, ideas and resources to help reduce the impact of life challenges on mental/emotional health and wellbeing so people and families suffer less. We recognise the value of sharing those ideas with others and through our website there is a range of videos, recordings and materials. Working with Soapbox design has been great for helping bring those ideas to life where they have taken our text and worked with us to create resource booklets, infographics, mind maps, postcards, affirmation cards and more which has helped us share with so many others. None of us can do it alone, that is why we have each other. Working together we can be the change the world does need to see, even if that is one postcard of hope at a time.” – Hilda Campbell

I had the pleasure of working with Soapbox Digital Media to design a website for my restaurant, Pendulum. I was impressed with their professionalism, responsiveness, and attention to detail. The end result was a beautiful website that has received positive feedback from customers. I highly recommend Soapbox Digital Media for anyone looking for high-quality web design services, especially if you’re a restaurant owner like myself.

We’ve received countless compliments about how professional and user friendly our website is. We’ve since been in contact with Liam who has created guides for us to be able to update the website ourselves as well as expand and develop the website as we grow as a company. It has been a very smooth and effortless collaboration with Soapbox and has given us a brilliant website which has increased our sales. We look forward to continuing to work with them in future as we grow and expand.
