Design

I design things.
Here's some of my recent work.

 
 
 

Tenterhooks

Visual identity for a new co-working space for artisans and creatives in historic Newmarket Square, Dublin 8.

The design strategy was inspired by the visual and material heritage of the Huguenots, skilled weavers and lacemakers, who stretched their fabric on tenterhooks in nearby tenterfields.

The logo motif blends two stylised tenterhooks with a central square signifying Newmarket Square and the locality. A bespoke pattern, derived from the logo, further unites past with present by reflecting the Huguenots' renowned weaving and lacemaking skills.

 
 
 

Kling Klang

Visual identity for a monthly club 'night of music from another place'. Reflecting the night's musical obsessions, the design was inspired by the experimental music notation of Karlheinz Stockhausen and Iannis Xenakis. The typographic treatment is onamatapaeic, representing something of the sounds of the night.
