Carlow College

Project overview

Carlow College, St. Patrick’s, is Ireland’s second oldest university-level institution. Founded in 1782, it has a distinguished history as a college of teaching and research in the Humanities. Situated on its own grounds in the centre of Carlow town, the college has an old-world charm and warm nurturing environment. It is also very well connected and has close ties with several universities in the United States and Trinity College in Dublin.

Anyhow, they approached us a few months ago after we were recommended to them by a mutual acquaintance. We hit it off straight away. They were very enthusiastic and ambitious, yet approachable and down to earth and (a bit like us). They also had a definite objective and deadline, which was music to our ears (work is so much easier when there’s a clear goal and timeline).

As part of the new brand roll out, we re-designed all their stationery items, including letterhead, compliment slip and business cards. The challenge here was to make the design more contemporary while remaining faithful to the historic integrity of the original crest.

In the clients own words

We worked with Passion for Creative on a brand refresh and new website. Their creative solutions and responsiveness to timelines were impressive. Traffic to our site has improved hugely in such a short space of time. The team at Passion are always friendly, helpful and each bring their own area of expertise. It has been a great experience working with them and I look forward to working with the team into the future.
