Public Design

Bigger (and smaller) design work for the public realm

↓ Examples: Educate Together, RDS, Wicklow County Council &c.

Signs, exhibitions, direction & wayfinding.

These pieces aren't really a single category per se, but it made sense to collect a few representative pieces on this page.

The purposes of the pieces below vary. Some are branding or information exercises, others are to transform the purpose of a space, while yet others are to assist users & visitors.

Let's work together
Public art in Arklow Library
Arklow historical walk

A Worthy Cause designed, illustrated and project managed a collaborative project in Arklow Public Library. Combining the work of a team of local historians, a sign-painter and signage makers, alongside illustration we built a permanent display and created a guided walk.

Working with Local Groups
Sponsor signage for the National Gallery of Ireland
Quiet please, not all signage has to shout

Public bodies might not want to scream they are privately funded. But they need to state it prominently nonetheless.

Public notice in wicklow national park

Information signage, particularly in frequently visited tourist spots, must work beyond language, to be readily understandable. The message must be immediately clear. These were designed for closer reading than directional signage on roads and could list examples of frequent theft.
