We don't believe in 'out-of-the-box' design; we know each client's needs are different and we approach every project as such. We work rigorously through stages of research and development in order to ensure appropriate solutions that stand the test of time.
Below is an overview of our design process.
— Creative brief development
— Research & brainstorming
— Finishing touches
We find the earlier stages of the process are often the most important. Time spent getting the design brief accurate from the start is time well spent. Prior to our initial consultation we will often edit (or sometimes re-write) the brief to ensure it adresses all the client's requirements clearly and concisely. A good design brief establishes exactly what the client hopes to achieve from the project while also acting as a starting point for the designer.
Just as important is the research and development phases; the amount of time invested here is reflected in the final outcome. A greater understanding of the subject allows us to make more informed design decisions.
We were recently featured in German design magazine Page. The article focused on typography in Ireland.
We have worked with small businesses and large companies; we invest just as much thought and consideration into all our projects regardless of size or sector. We work closely with all our clients, keeping an open dialog throughout in order to gain better insight into what they do, their core values, their competitors, and their target market, which in turn feeds into apposite design deliverables.
We enjoy partnerships with clients who appreciate our craft and recognise the benefits of well thought out design.
"Before undertaking the complete revamp of our journal, The Homeopathic Times, the guys at Unit spent a considerable amount of time doing an indepth study of homeopathy itself and getting to understand how homeopaths work with their patients. I was impressed by that! They are very conscientious and professional as well as being pleasant and courteous to work with.
Our members were delighted with the new look journal - Unit studio worked well for us!"

"Working with UNIT was a great pleasure as they offered a lot of flexibility and adaptability during the project on top of bringing interesting ideas for the design of the book. Their availability and resourcefulness were greatly appreciated and allowed us to meet our deadlines properly.
As a client and as a reader of the book we are fully satisfied of the graphic design work performed by UNIT."
"Enjoyed working with UNIT. They understood the concept I was playing with and worked through several iterations to get to something fun and original. Would gladly work with them again."
