Local graphic design studio Lands has had its rebrand project of Curracloe National School selected for the prestigious 100 Archive.
Each year, following an open call, the 100 Archive publishes the most notable 100 communication design projects.
Last year, Brian Byrne of Lands was engaged by Curracloe NS to create a fresh new look for the school that encapsulated its progressive nature.
He said the inspiration for the Curracloe ‘C’ came from the mosaics seen on a visit to the school.
“They were made by the pupils with visiting artist Helen McClean and are mounted on the walls of the outdoor classroom. A mosaic seemed to be an appropriate visual metaphor to use as it’s made from a variety of materials in different sizes and colours to create something bigger than its individual parts.
“Just like the pupils of the school – they all make a valuable contribution to the broader school community no matter their age, ability, interests, gender or ethnicity,” he said.
“Engaging with the children and allowing them to participate in the process was an important part of the design development of this project.”
The project can be seen on the 100 Archive at www.100archive.com/projects/curracloe-national-school.
