we

CRIMMINS VISUAL COMMUNICATIONS is a low scale, high skill team of professionals with extensive experience in concept generation, design, production and project management. We provide imaginative, functional and sophisticated solutions for cultural and commercial clients in Ireland and abroad. In order to ensure that our creative and technical expertise is not diluted, first hand professional input is provided every stage of the design process. With an inventive and practical approach to design, a strong emphasis is placed on research, attention to detail and strong concepts which go beyond the limitations of any single visual aesthetic. Applying the appropriate rhetoric to clearly defined content is essential in effectively conveying the relevant information. In addition to acquiring a clear understanding of the brief, dialogue with the client enables visual and verbal nuances specific to particular fields to be realised. The scale of work we produce is not limited, with experience working for individuals, companies and large organisations on projects ranging from single images to large publications, multimedia, comprehensive house styles and exhibitions.
