Penhouse

We design…

An appreciation of the creative craft and a keen desire to make impact in the marketplace,
is what all our clients have in common.

Whether it is a new logo design and overall brand identity, a new packaging design with stand-out retail presence, a fresh brochure or marketing literature, an illustration or infographic or a brand new web presence – we are on board.

Our Team

We are a close knit team of highly motivated, senior designers with a passion for design excellence. We enjoy pushing a concept to its limit until we find a truly original solution. While each of us has our own individual style, all our projects are worked on collectively. Together we bring varied design experience, different styles, skill sets and a positive, creative approach to each project, offering a fresh vision every time. We like to work closely with you to truly understand your business. It’s important to us that you enjoy the design process as much as we do. We want you too to feel excited, reassured, stimulated, challenged, inspired, and invigorated along the journey.

Our Studio

penhouse-design_studio_collage_Many years ago, we moved from the centre of Dublin city to the heart of rural Laois in the middle of Ireland. We renovated stone farm buildings, transforming them into contemporary graphic design studios. Surrounded by barley fields, changing with the seasons, we’re lucky to be freshly inspired from here each day.

Why Penhouse?
We have been designing creatively since 1996 and we like to think we offer a little bit more than the expected, creating designs that evolve and age well. We think laterally and imaginatively about what makes each business unique, then we find an original and creative way to interpret this. We have a customer-focused approach to marketing, a practical attitude to budget management and today we are happy to say, we have a diverse range of long-standing, happy clients.

Our Services
We build brands through print & digital media, working with great people and interesting businesses of every size. Our services include: logo and brand identity design, packaging design, marketing literature, web design, brochure design, annual reports, advertising, exhibition & display.

Our Awards
We have a big shelf of awards and a decorated wall of acreditations too, for both creative and effective design. We won our first internationally judged award in 1999. Since then we have won 2 grand prix awards, 3 gold awards, 5 silvers and numerous highly commended awards (as well as many kind and much appreciated compliments on our work!). You’ll also see our designs featured in lots of national and international publications.

Who we work with…
We are experts in consumer design, with core strengths in image based design – be it colourful and energetic or 5 star, ultra high-end. We sit on a number of select design panels and we partner with many private businesses as their designers of choice. Some of our better known clients include: An Bord Bia, Department of Children and Youth Affairs, Lily O’Brien’s, GAA, Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), Druids Glen, The Heritage Killenard, The Heritage Council and Tourism groups in Carlow, Clare, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois and Tipperary.

Fresh Air (blog)

So our days are filled throwing ideas around. We’re always trying to come up with fresh and different ways to get our clients buzzed and ultimately create designs that excite us.

In this process, we search for the alternative, research and read lots. We come across some ‘out there’ designs and other ‘wish I had done that’ stuff too. We started this blog to share and record some of the cooler things we come across, as well as some of our own activities too, all of which collectively shape our thought process. Enjoy this breath of Fresh Air…
