I’m Grant Gibson. Welcome to my site…

My name is Grant Gibson. I’m the Deputy Managing Director at Bright Signals, a creative content agency based in Glasgow, Scotland.

My internet history is long and varied: From 1995-1999 I worked on first-gen Internet strategies for clients including Philips, Marconi Connunications, the Bank of Scotland and musician Julian Lennon. From 2000-2007 I worked as lead designer and web producer on s1jobs, Scotland’s most successful job site. And from 2008-2014 I led digital strategy at the Herald & Times newspaper group, growing audiences and subscriptions on Scotland’s only paid-for news sites, Herald Scotland and The National.

In my spare time I’m a keen maker, using a blend of software and hardware to build projects featured in Popular Science, Make Magazine and IKEA Hackers.

I occasionally take on freelance design, animation and game development projects for clients including Sony Pictures, E.W. Scripps and the psychologist and author Prof Richard Wiseman. See some examples of software and hardware projects here. I also have extensive experience of search optimisation, pay-per-click campaign management and web analytics.
