Design by local studio Lands for Curracloe NS chosen for 100 Archive


Local graphic design studio Lands has had its Curracloe National School rebranding project shortlisted for the prestigious 100 Archive.

ach year, following a call for applications, the Archive 100 publishes the 100 most outstanding communication design projects.

Last year, Brian Byrne from Lands was hired by Curracloe NS to create a new look for the school that encapsulates its progressive nature.

He said the inspiration for the Curracloe ‘C’ came from the mosaics seen during a visit to the school.

“They were made by the students with guest artist Helen McClean and are mounted on the walls of the outdoor classroom. A mosaic seemed like an appropriate visual metaphor to use as it is made from a variety of materials of different sizes and colors to create something larger than its individual parts.

“Just like the school’s students – they all make a valuable contribution to the wider school community, regardless of age, ability, interest, gender or ethnicity,” he said. .

“Engaging with children and allowing them to participate in the process has been an important part of developing the design of this project.”
