Celebrating the contribution made by small creative businesses is at the heart of the inaugural Colour Saturday held today.

The event, coinciding with Small Business Saturday, has been set up by online marketplace notonthehighstreet.com (NOTHS) to “shine a light” on this sector, and the skills and “more thoughtful approach” it brings at a time of year associated with mass consumption.

The company has installed an interactive digital Christmas tree in Edinburgh, showcasing some of NOTHS’ Scottish partners. Its chief executive Simon Belsham said: “The world’s most innovative design-led businesses started in the UK and we haven’t really got a day to celebrate everything that they do, so our ambition is that Colour Saturday become a day in the festive calendar for years to come.”
