What it's all about
The Little Museum of Dublin is a city history museum situated on St Stephen's Green in Dublin, Ireland. The museum is located in an 18th-century Georgian townhouse owned by Dublin City Council. Artefacts are largely donated by Dublin residents, and the museum bookshop focuses on unique Irish-made goods.
how we did it
I completed a one-year contract as a staff Graphic Designer under the Head of Design. My responsibilities included print, web, event, and shop product design. I was responsible for much of the printed collateral around the museum - signs out front and in St. Stephen's Green, in the shop, amongst the artifacts, and in our published works.
Minimalist Cover Options for A Little History of Dublin
The Postcard History of Dublin
The Postcard History of Dublin is a coffee table book that tells the story of Dublin from its Viking roots up to present day. The design and layout of the book was done by my 2 person design team, below you can find some of the pages I designed. You will find a corresponding product line that I designed as well in the shop section below this one.
A moodboard for a future shop redesign. Research on successful museum shops - MoMa, Walker Art Center, Copenhagen Museum of Modern Art, and The Royal Academy.
Beer mats designed by myself for sale in the shop and to be distributed at nearby pubs for advertising.
A 3 product series I designed for the shop - tote, journal, and pen with box. Inspired by the postcard book written and designed by the Little Museum team.
