About Cida Design Co
Discover the power
of your brand.
Your brand is more than your logo. Your brand communicates your business
personality and shapes your clients’ perceptions of who you are.
Cida Design Co. works with you to clarify the purpose of your business, understanding what you do, who you need to communicate to, and how best to reach that audience. Once this has been established, I can then craft the perfect visual identity for your business and implement this through the most effective methods including print and digital materials and a new website. This journey will equip you with the best visual identity and communications strategy for personal and professional growth, success, and happiness.
During my ten years of working as a designer and marketing executive in diverse creative industries in Ireland and mainland Europe, I came to recognise how disjointed the creative process can be in terms of business planning, goal manifestation, and strategy. Often these roles are not interlinked, which can lead to a loss of clarity and understanding of purpose during the creative process.
I believe that in order to craft the most effective visual identity and communications for your business, we need to get to the heart of your story.
Meet the Founder
I began my journey in 2008 while studying a BA in Visual Communications in Ireland. After graduating with First Class Honours in 2012, I decided to continue my design education and complete an MA in Professional Design Practice in 2013, achieving a distinction. Although I learned so much in my years of education, I knew that I couldn’t possibly start my own business without gaining valuable industry experience. I count myself very fortunate to have worked within wonderful companies and with a variety of people covering very diverse industries over the last decade. I have gained fantastic experience and knowledge in the arts and culture sector as well as publishing, branding, and communications.
In the beginning of 2019 I participated in a ‘Start Your Own Business' Course where I met many other startup entrepreneurs and learned of their difficulties in creating a brand that was not only true to their business, but to themselves as well. I realised that these are the people I want to help - those who have passion and a vision, but don’t exactly know where best to start.
If you have found your true purpose but need some help in manifesting the true identity and communications for your business, then you’ve come to the right place.
The pheasant symbolises the purposeful use of your gifts to achieve what you want. It’s symbolic of being creative and productive by tapping into your passions. The things that you’ve always wanted to do will be the things that will propel you to do even greater things.
The pheasant is an attractive and powerful animal that craves wide open spaces to roam free and spread its wings.
