The newly formed Meath Creative Collective is a collective of County Meath's finest contemporary makers, crafters and designers. Set up to promote and showcase excellence in craft and design, they are supported by the Local Enterprise Office, Meath. Bammedia were tasked to create a new branding scheme and a directory website that showcased their work, and that tells the story of the rich historical connections that Meath shares with ancient Ireland.
Meath is known to have been a centre for older civilisations (Newgrange 5000 BC) as well as high kings (Hill of Tara) in more recent times, a place where people came together as illustrated in the art. The best preserved and largest collection of the most amazing megalithic art found in Europe is found in this area, at Dowth, Loughcrew, Newgrange and Fourknocks - these stone carvings were the art of their time and featured many geometric shapes and symbols.
Our Meath Made symbol represents the letter M for Meath Made but also takes it's inspiration from carvings found in Loughcrew and elsewhere that are commonly thought to represent the rivers and waterways of the area that brought life and wealth to the area.
Our tagline "Where creativity began" reinforces this connection between our past and our present crafters and designers.
Bammedia worked with the Meath Made steering committee to deliver a vibrant modern brand identity that we feel beautifully encapsulates this harmonious blend of old and new, of tradition and innovation. We produced promotional a suite of marketing materials, custom icons, static and animated branded CANVA templates for social media, pull-up banners and promotional leaflets.
We developed a dynamic new brochure website: www.meathmade.com This digital platform showcases each makers work, allowing visitors to delve into the world of the craft collective and discover its talented members and their individual products. The website's main focal point is a user-friendly search and filter directory page, which simplifies the process of finding specific makers and crafts people, based on their individual trades and skills.
