GRAPHIC INDEX LTD, the multiple award-winning graphic design consultancy dedicated to crafting successful brands, is celebrating 20 years in business.
The company, located at the corner of Market Square and Dean’s Place, right in the heart of Tullamore, originally began life in Dublin in 1998, before moving to Athlone, but has been located in the Offaly county town since 2001.
Graphic Index was founded by Managing Director Tim Quinlan, a native of Coolderry, who explains that the company’s core focus is on building lasting partnerships with clients.
Tim outlined: “We work to understand the story of our clients’ businesses and their goals so we can develop a strategy and a visual identity that positions them for success. This approach has proved successful in winning business and retaining clients from all over Ireland; many of whom have been working with us for more than a decade.”
Through partnership with complimentary service providers such as printing and web development professionals, Graphic Index can offer an holistic visual communication service.
Tim graduated from NCAD with an Honours Bachelor of Design and also holds a Diploma in Design Communications from Athlone Institute of Technology.
Tim, who has been passionate about art since his schooldays in Coolderry and Roscrea, is also an illustrator and portrait painter and creates artwork for both commercial and private clients. “A picture paints a thousand words” and Graphic Index offer an array of possibilities in creating that picture - with both traditional and digital illustration which can enhance the branding process in an exciting and unique way.
In recent years the business has diversified into customised memorial cards. Initially a service provided occasionally for family and friends, the demand grew and prompted the establishment of www.irishmemorialcards.ie “We offer personalised Memorial Cards, Bookmarks, Wallet Cards and Acknowledgement Cards. Each item is individually designed with photos and verses chosen by the client to make it a customised commemoration to the life and memory of a loved one”.
This service is in high demand with clients coming from across Ireland and the UK as well as mainland Europe and the U.S. together with a strong local business.
As such, Graphic Index provides three distinct but complementary services under the one roof – www.graphicindex.com, www.irishmemorialcards.ie and www.timquinlan.ie
Tim and his design team, Maria Cunningham, who has been with the company since 2006, and Justin Ryan, who joined two years ago, are available to help with any design query.
The company’s broad client base draws from many sectors and industries including agricultural supplies, construction, engineering, education, professional services, food packaging, hospitality, fashion, cosmetics and the public sector.
Graphic Index design and produce corporate identity, logos, brochures, promotional graphics, point of sale, packaging, direct mail, exhibition stands, website design and much more.
They will handle all aspects of printing and production to best present the designs they produce at the best price possible through their network of printing suppliers.
Meeting clients’ needs and communicating effectively with them is the Graphic Index team’s top priority.
