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.

Smaller design studios provide a service where experience and expertise is not diluted in the cumbersome hierarchy associated with larger firms. There is always first hand professional input at all stages of the design process.

The scale of work produced by us is not limited. We have experience working for individuals, companies and large organisations on projects ranging from simple images to large documents, exhibitions, multimedia and comprehensive house styles.
