Just catching up with some posts I should have made at the moment.
A little over a week ago Michele Neylon came to me with a small project. Logo design and templating for a website he had acquired Carlow.biz. I love pet projects like this as they are fun / interesting and up and running fairly quickly (at least I hope so when I get involved in them). He has a blog post on it over at Carlow business directory now live
The design is drawing from the Carlow County Crest and its associated colours. The crest features the Red Dragon (also on the Welsh Flag) and the Ermine ( a Heraldic fur representing the winter coat of the stoat … you learn something new every day) Though I must admit I knew about the Ermine already as its one of the key elements on the Breton Flag.
Hopefully for people from Carlow the colour choices make sense (black / red / white), I chose to steer clear of the yellow from the lions. I’m a Galway man at heart and the Galway Colours / Crest always influences designs there so I would guess its similar for Carlow.
Anyways there may be some minor tweaks on the site design over the next while it’ll depend on any feedback thats given.
