who we are

made by tentmaker

We are a creative consultancy based in the Highlands of Scotland, but working with clients throughout Scotland and sometimes further afield.  We work across a range of creative skills helping clients develop concepts and bringing those concepts to life, in both digital and print form.

Tentmaker is run by Roddy Mackay, a freelance creative, with 15 years of experience working in media and communications. As the lead creative at Tentmaker, Roddy is both the primary point of contact for clients, and the project manager when working with other external creatives.

Roddy is married to Fiona, who oversees written content, grammar and punctuation. Fiona is an English Literature & Language graduate of the University of Glasgow and loves all things word-related.



Our approach is to work closely with clients, helping you to identify the big picture of your communications and putting in place all the parts required to help you tell your story more effectively. We call this our ‘4-D process’: delve, develop, design & deploy. 

As well as the work that we produce independently, we also work alongside a range of other creatives where needed, managing a project through the stages of both concept and creation.

In an age of digital dilution, where there are multiple outlets to manage, and distractions vying for your audience’s attention, we do what we do so that you don’t have to.
