Working With Artists

A Worthy Cause process is collaborative, it's at the core of what the studio does. When  approached by a client we will begin by discussing requirements and figuring out what makes a project unique. The message is distilled from there.

Across Platforms

We will work with you to produce printed pieces, installations, hand crafted items, digital assets, video animations, websites and other digital media. But before we dive into any of that, we will work with you to figure out what's really required.

Wicklow Arts

Unlike brand management where consistency is key, when working with arts groups evolution and change are paramount. Annually, many of the same briefs reappear, in particular when related to public funding schemes. Making these unique every year is often the primary challenge.

Often the simple solution is the best. Within the arts, supporting design should never get in the way of presenting the work, but just do enough to promote it.

With heritage projects, both for natural environment and built environment programmes, the job is often an educational one. Information is presented with clarity, in a memorable fashion.

A Worthy Cause grew directly out of working with arts and cultural organisations. That was back when film was still film, and invitations to openings were things that were made of paper.
