One that is ultra easy to navigate - that looks amazing - loads quickly and works on all mobile and tablet devices. A really great website is generally one that is designed by a qualified graphic designer and someone who knows website development inside out. We have created literally hundreds of websites for our clients in Ireland, The Uk and the USA.

What is your lead time?
What/who is your target market?
What is your realistic Budget for the projects at hand.
Do you have any photography that supports your project requirements.
Have you a strategic Marketing plan in place?


Our creative process really depends on the type of creative brief we are approaching. Our skillset is very diverse and our approach to branding projects would be entirely different to our website projects or Motion Graphic or promotional video projects. That said our first port of call is to immerse ourselves in the clients business goals and their background - any literature they may have that promotes their company. Finally we would always have as many conversations as we can with the client before we start any creative project so we can be sure we have saturated our knowledge of their business and their goals.

The above covers this topic but in a nutshell we need to know as much as possible about the business before we begin any creative. Our motto in our design studio is saturate, incubate, illuminate. This means we try and 'saturate' ourselves with everything there is to know about the company, individual (sole trader) or business. We will then 'incubate' this information so we can start the creative cogs turning. The final step is to progress the creative brief and this is the stage we 'illuminate' the client and their work through our bespoke designed creative solutions.

Absolutely every one of our designers and developers - be they graphic designers, website developers or videographers have a real and sincere passion for their creativity. Everyone we employ is a qualified graphic designer so they really come from a place of loving design as whole. Our love of our work is often relayed by our clients when they complete their work with us and our reviews over the years from countless clients use words like - passionate - responsive - hugely creative - easy to deal with - always on time and always willing to go the extra mile.

I always loved the idea of running my own business and my love of design started at an early age. I excelled at art in school (absolutely hated science) I completed college with one of x3 distinctions out of 43 students. I then worked in the higher echelons of agencies in Dublin for 11 years where my work took me in different areas such as above the line, below the line and through the line agencies. I also spent a stint freelancing for some of the top companies in Dublin such as Rothco, Cawley Nea and Strategem.

Because really and truly we know what we are doing. We know how to properly approach any creative communication be it a website, a logo/brand or a motion video and this is through the creation of literally thousands of completed creative briefs that designwest have started and finished since we opened our doors in 2005.

We could write a book on branding. Seriously, we could. But for now let’s focus on the core branding ingredients and why they matter. The best place to start is with your identity. It could be a logo or a wordmark or just a splash on a page but however you look at it, this is something that sets you apart from your competitors & represents you and your business. There are several elements to consider, including colour, typeface, style, photo and illustration – and this is where we can help…by helping you create the identity, logo design, word mark or even that ‘splash’ that will help your business grow

With all the buzz around websites, e-commerce and ‘smart’ devices it is easy to forget the tried and tested media we are so familiar with… print design. In other words, that all important logo, brochure or business card design, or any of the other print, advertising or marketing media that you encounter day-to-day. Ultimately, it all boils down to the same thing: visual communication. It’s a competitive market out there and we are living in a very, very visual world. Think about all of the offers, messages and sales communications your eyes are drawn to every day, and the multitude of media channels that are used to bombard you.

The designwest and Motion Monsters design team are great lovers of motion graphic videos and promotional vidoes. We have created some really slick examples of motion videos over the years which have really attracted great feedback for both our clients and ourselves. Motion graphic web videos are a really great way of marketing your business through your website or even when promoted on social media or viral marketing campaigns. A motion web video is really a vehicle for explaining your business, announcements, services or statistics in a much more interesting and dynamic way rather than – for example – either printing it or putting the information as text/pictures on your website. People generally are quite inquisitive and are much more likely to watch an online or web video than perhaps they are to read the text on your website. There are a number of ways of creating motion or web videos whether its footage of you or someone within your company speaking on the video or whether the information is conveyed using motion type or iconography (don’t tell anyone but we much prefer the latter style!) We can quite literally visualize anything from a plane taking off through to animated /moving characters right through to industrial environments etc. With web motion videos the sky is literally the limit and we really think these are a huge benefit to any business that is perhaps finding it hard to get their message out there. The videos as mentioned previously can be uploaded onto your website or any of the social media or video based platforms such as you-tube, vimeo or even on facebook or tweeted so there are so many ways of getting your business message out there. Contact designwest today about how we can help you with your web motion video on 094 93 82000.

Let’s be honest here: your website is potentially one of your best friends in business. And, like it or not, having a functional, well designed website has never been more important… whether you’re sitting in your New York office or staring out at the wild blue sea in the west of Ireland. The world has become a much smaller place thanks to technology and the internet, and current figures suggest that 85% of business people worldwide will use the internet as their first port of call to find your service. Who knows how the other 15% are finding their information these days!

We create all kinds of bespsoke signage for our clients all over Ireland and these include shop from signage, vehicle graphics, all kinds of bespoke signage such as pull up banners, PVC banners and everything in between.
