Alan Gunning

Head Honcho…
the dude in the chair.
You can call me Al

Hello…I run the studio here in Stirling.

I’m a design loving, guitar slinging, paisley rocking graphic designer from Edinburgh – living and working in Stirling for over a decade and designing for nearly twenty years! Ooft, I’m so old I remember using Netscape Navigator and MSN Messenger, whilst trying to update my MySpace page (google it, kids).

When I’m not creating, you’ll occasionally find me playing loud guitar in my psychedelic blues band and wearing even louder shirts!

Drop me a line if you’d like to chat about Jimi Hendrix your next project.



(the wonderdog)

He enjoys chewing the fabric samples, pawing at the pop ups and chilling in his speakeasy booth.  Named after Louis Armstrong, he likes 50s rock and roll (Hound Dog is a favourite obvs) –  he can’t play the trumpet but can give a pretty tuneful howl.

Get on the dog and bone.


Don’t just take our word for it…

Sometimes you get lucky in life and that’s what happened when we discovered Nettl in Stirling! We would 100% recommend Alan for any business in need of a digital marketing wizard to help promote you.When we were setting up our new development business we had lots of vague ideas about what we wanted to achieve but no idea how to refine them and piece them all together. However Alan took the time to understand our business, what we needed and how we might achieve that before using his extensive creative skills and expertise to produce a superb professional identity for us. We now have a beautiful intuitive website with distinctive branding and a range of stunning promotional brochures & flyers printed in quality high definition. It was an unexpected bonus to discover Alan is a talented artist too and it’s very special to have a gorgeous watercolour interpretation of a photograph now featured in our brochure. Alan & Satchmo the Wonderdog are the perfect team... Alan offers a unique blend of creative talent, extensive knowledge of digital marketing and the ability to intuitively interpret sketchy ideas, hopes and dreams! Satchmo meanwhile brightens your day with his effusive welcome and delight at being in your company!read more
