Congratulations on launching this morning to Ciara from Style Serendipity, a new Irish wedding blog and classifieds site.

As two ladies with weddings on the brain, this was a dream project for us and we really enjoyed working with Ciara on the design and development of the site.

Dislike – A facebook guide to the recession

Curious client (and my hubby!) comedian Colm O’Regan is bringing his new show Dislike: a Facebook guide to the recession! to Whelan’s this Sunday after a sold out performance at the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Comedy festival.

We’ve had great fun working on the promotional materials for the show – here’s a sneak peek of the Edinburgh flyer, complete with a giant custom-made facebook dislike hand and fake event invitation.

If you can’t catch the show this Sunday Colm will be performing in Clonmel, Thurles, Ballybofey, the Galway Arts Festival and the Iveagh Gardens Comedy Festival before heading over to Edinburgh for the Fringe in August. For more information on gigs visit his website.

You can get your tickets for Sunday here or buy them on the door on the night. See you then!

Curious Clients: Gearóid Farrelly

Rain getting you down? In need of a mid-week giggle?

We recommend lifting your spirits with some video clips of comedian Gearóid Farrelly – we had great fun watching them all (for research of course!) while working on his new website.

For those looking for a fun night out – details of Gearóid’s upcoming gigs are also available on the site.

Curious Clients: Maple Moose

I love pottering about in the garden so I’m very excited to be heading off to Bloom this weekend.

As well as all the pretty plants, I’m looking forward to treating myself to some yummy ice-cream and maybe a crepe from Maple Moose – a client of ours who’ll be serving up waffles, crepes and ice-cream all weekend in the picnic area.

They were a big hit at Slane recently – this was only a part of the queue!

You can check out their new website which we launched yesterday for more information on Maple Moose, their menus and locations.

How will you be enjoying the sunshine over the bank holiday weekend?

Curious Clients: Fight Night

There are a few days to go to the weekend but you can still squeeze in some mid-week culture with a lunchtime trip to the theatre!

Fight night by Gavin Kostick, starring Aonghus Óg McAnally is currently showing in Bewley’s Cafe Theatre until June 11, 2011.

We went to see the show recently and thoroughly enjoyed the performance. We were treated to jellybeans, lucozade and an action-packed journey through the life and trials Dan Coyle Jr., a failed amateur boxer from a long line of successful fighters. Dan must come to terms with the fraught relationship he has with his father while learning to be a father to his own baby son as he prepares to re-enter the ring.

Aonghus Óg won Best Actor for his performance in Dublin’s ABSOLUT Fringe 2010 and you can certainly see why, as he delivers a moving and at times hilarious performance while skipping, boxing and jogging his way through the show.

We worked with Rise Productions and the Lisa Richards Agency on the promotional material for the play. We split a photo of Dan Jr. across both sides of the flyer to show the different sides of his character – on one side a boxer, on the other a new father and a troubled son.

Fight Night runs Monday – Saturday until the 11th of June at 1.10pm, we would thoroughly recommend treating yourself to a more interesting lunch break by watching the show! For further information click here.

PS. There are still a few days left to enter our clinky competition to win one of our commemorative postcards – just comment on this post to be in with a chance to win!

While Rachel was zooming around in helicopters last weekend, I was having a lovely time in the Sunny South East enjoying strawberries and champagne at the Sunny Wexford Strawberries’ launch party.

Check out their facebook page for more photos of the day.

Sunnys are campaigning to get their Wexford strawberries onto supermarket shelves around the country. Working with Pivotal Communications we designed and built the new Sunny Wexford Strawberries website.

The site shares information about the strawberries and their growers and gives users the opportunity to request that their local store stocks the brand. To promote the launch we also created email and print invites.

We’re really pleased with the results and it was great to see all our work come to fruit-ion at the launch!
