| 20/03/2014 | 1 Comment

Jil Murphy“We need to act and make Scotland’s wealth work better for all our people. If we don’t vote for independence we will have lost the opportunity of a lifetime.”

Jil is founding partner at ThinRedLine Design, a marketing and branding company based in Edinburgh supplying graphic design, photography services and branded products.

She has a varied background, including working as a freelance stylist and copywriter for organisations such as Edinburgh & Lothian Tourist Board, Scottish Convention Bureau, Standard Life publications and the fashion pages of the Weekend Scotsman magazine.

Jil also worked in property, establishing and managing Home Apartments and a property development company, MacBeth & Murphy Ltd.

Jil has an emotional and practical approach to independence. “I believe that the case for Scottish independence is strong on both an emotional and practical level. It’s common sense to let those who live in Scotland make the decisions on how to run our own affairs, to shape our society as we see fit and confront the challenges of the modern world in a way that we choose,” she says.

Jil is leader of the Edinburgh group of Business for Scotland. For more information on how to join the group or to find out about events, click here http://www.businessforscotland.co.uk/contact-us/
