Category: Mobile Friendly Website Design USA

 The Team at Designwest and USA counterpart Motion Monsters are thrilled to have recently completed the brand new website for what is probably one of the best-known bars in the Meatpacking District in New York city – the Brass Monkey. Interestingly the Brass Monkey Bar is actually owned by a Dublin man who has turned this old building into something quite amazing – the internal of the bar needs to be seen to be believed and the bar is one of the few in the area that has a rooftop bar.  Our amazing website designers created this beautiful ultra mobile friendly WordPress website design using some amazing photography from inside the bar. Part of the brief was also to create a promotional video for the bar so in order to do this we hired a video crew and Photographer (Thanks to Kevin Kerr Photography and his crew) who did an amazing job. The end result is a super slick website and promotional video for the Brass Monkey Bar which we hope will serve them for many years ahead. We should also note that apart from having the most amazing choice of beers etc. they create the most amazing tomato soup and burgers that we think we ever tasted.

Client: Castlebar / First Choice Credit Union, Castlebar Mayo
The Motion based promotional Video for Castlebar Credit Union was one our talented motion graphic designer really enjoyed creating as he is a self professed superhero nerd! The Promotional motion graphic video for the Mayo based company in the west of Ireland uses vector based illustrations of Superheroes which have been partly animated to suit the comic book style of the campaign. The video features a number of different frames that switch from Superhero – to text – to comic book style frames all of which are animated to relay the story of the transition from Castlebar Credit Union to First Choice Credit Union. The music of the video is also very slick and really works incredibly well with the video giving it a very distinctive style along with the sound effects which give it added impact. All of the work for the Promotional video including the illustration, animation and sound effects for the video were created in-house by the amazingly talented team of graphic and motion graphic designers at Designwest.

Promotional Motion Graphic Video – Co. Mayo, Ireland.
Client: Ireland West Airport Knock, Charlestown, Co. Mayo, Ireland

American Vice President Joe Biden landed at Ireland West Airport Knock this week and here is a motion graphic – promotional video that the very talented creative motion artists at Designwest have just completed for our longest standing client Ireland West Airport Knock to celebrate the airport being open 30 years – yes 30 years already!

This Motion Graphics video uses a combination of old footage and memorabilia imagery which has been collected over the years to create a wonderful tribute to Monsignor Horan and this amazing Airport that he so graciously managed to get completed before he passed away.  Since its opening in 1986 the airport has been a crucial travel hub facilitating passengers from all over the country and the mid and north west of Ireland.

The motion video itself for our favorite Mayo based client brings us on a visual and audio based journey of exactly how Monsignor Horan battled – literally – against all of the odds to get the airport built – a most amazing feat by any standards. Our motion graphic artists also used some aviation based imagery as well as styling from the current Ireland West Aviation brand and integrated all of these elements to create an amazing motion based video or promotional based video for the airport.

Designwest  are most proud to have been part of the constant & ongoing development of the airport in terms of the visual aspect including this video, it’s signage, all of the print advertising and the promotional elements for the airport over the past 8 years and we are looking forward to carrying on our creative path with them. If you are looking for a promotional motion graphic video that stands out from the competition contact designwest today about how we can help you with your promotional motion graphic video on: 094 938 2000 or email us at

Motion Video Design Five Sciences

Category: Motion Video Design
Client: Five Sciences, Claregalway, Co. Galway, Ireland.

Design West created this motion graphic video for the launch of Five Sciences, Claregalway, Co. Galway. Five Sciences aim to be the first choice provider of functional health drinks, supporting everyday ‘wellness’ for their customers. The drinks will be developed and distributed initially throughout Ireland and the UK. They will soon be introducing a memory enhancement beverage to the market which will help boost memory. Motion graphic web videos are a really great way of marketing your business through your website or even when promoted on social media or viral marketing campaigns. A motion web video is really a more interesting and dynamic vehicle for explaining your business, announcements, services or statistics rather than – for example – either printing it or putting the information as text/pictures on your website. People generally are quite inquisitive and are much more likely to watch and respond to an online video than perhaps they are to read detailed text on your website.
