Recently I had the honour of coordinating with an amazing and dedicated team on Animation Ireland’s 2019 Irish Animation Awards, and so it was a real treat to also see my design used throughout the new branding for 2019 The Irish Animation Awards.

Based on magical surroundings of Dingle and Kerry, the three suns represent the third year of Animation Ireland’s awards with swallows (AA for “Animation Awards”) returning back to Ireland this time of year, bringing the animation awards and accolades back home.
The wave pattern used to represent the Atlantic ocean on which Dingle and Kerry reside, is a Japanese motif-a homage to Jimmy Murakami and the Murakami award, which was won by Nora Twomey (Cartoon Saloon) on Saturday nights ceremony!

What a super evening with so many outstanding people, carrying gorgeous energy and personality with them within the industry and wherever they go.

Big big congrats to all the nominees and winners- some extreme talent there and forces to be reckoned with! Bualadh bos mór to the Irish Animation industry!

This was Animation Ireland’s third awards ceremony to acknowledge and celebrate the outstanding creative talent we have within the Irish Animation, VFX and gaming industries. The awards took place at the Dingle Skelligs Hotel on Saturday the 23rd of March 2019.

Home to the Dingle Film Festival and Animation Dingle for the last 7 years, Dingle provided Animation Ireland with the perfect backdrop for the Irish Animation Awards. Delighted to be back in the magical surroundings of Dingle and honoured to be associated with what has become an internationally renowned event!
