Working on a book is a labour of love. Planning it out, templating pages and sections, choosing types, typesetting intricacies...
Laying out editorial content, as the studio for Mongrel magazine, was the first regular work for A Worthy Cause. In time the work expanded, but a love of pages of text remains.
The studio's emphasis is on craft and detail. Books and magazines require this forensic approach.
For At It Again, A Worthy Cause was engaged as an editorial design consultant. They had a strong brand and wanted to evolve it, all spinning out from their core product - guides to Irish literature. The entire brand was rebuilt starting with the books' typography, grids and templates and working out from there.

A Worthy Cause recently produced a commemorative, archival book for Wicklow County Council. Combining the work of local historians across the county it tells the story of the tumultuous years from the Easter Rising to the Civil War.
