AKGraphics had the pleasure of working with McLoughlin Architecture, Naas, Co. Kildare, in creating a new corporate identity. The new logo design for the Kildare based company captures the clean lines and modern feel that McLoughlin Architecture wanted to portray. An important part of professional logo design is selecting a colour palette appropriate to the brand tone.
McLoughlin Architecture faced the difficulty of having their offices on the first and second floors of a shared commercial building. This meant that clients sometimes had difficulty locating them. As the building holds a number of different business it was important that McLoughlin Architecture branding and signage was clearly visible from the carpark. Way finding signage was particularly important in this design project, to read more about McLoughlin Architecture’s signage design click here or you can click here for more examples of our signage design.
As part of AKGraphics’ work on the new branding for McLoughlin Architecture we designed a full suite of stationery for them. This included business card design, compliments slip design and letterhead design. In keeping with the new brand styling the stationery items featured crisp clean lines with lots of white space which resulted in a professional looking suite of corporate stationery.

- A change of business strategy.
- To keep up with design trends when a logo looks outdated.
- To project a new image to customers.
- To reposition themselves in the marketplace.
- To refocus their brand strategy.
- To relaunch their company.
- To revitalise the brand personality.
- To reconnect with their target market.
- To make their promotional material, both online and print more consistent.

Exterior Office Signage & Window Graphics
Clear signage for offices that can be difficult to find
With offices at ground floor level it can be easy for clients and customers to locate your business. McLoughlin Architecture, Naas, Co. Kildare, faced the difficulty of having their offices on the first and second floors of a shared commercial building. This meant that clients sometimes had difficulty locating them. As the building holds a number of different business it was important that McLoughlin Architecture branding and signage was clearly visible from the carpark. This new signage also had to guide the clients upstairs to the offices.
As an experienced design agency AKGraphics designed a variety of different signage solutions that would create impact while in keeping with McLoughlin’s branding. These signage solutions included an aluminium sign which featured the McLoughlin logo. This sign was finished to a very high standard with the graphics wrapping around the edges and was stud mounted off the exterior wall of the office. This mounting signage solution ensures that the fixings are hidden to create a clean finished look. As the walkway to McLoughlin Architect’s offices is quite long and narrow we also designed a protruding sign that was studded off the wall at a 90° angle. This sign means that the location of the office is instantly visible from either end of the walkway. In addition to these signs AKGraphics also designed window graphics for all exterior windows and also the entrance door graphics. A mixture of white vinyl, frosted vinyl and full colour printed graphics with the company branding were used to great effect.
Additional to the above exterior signage McLoughlin Architecture also required site signage that they would use on site for promotional purposes. To ensure that these signs would be durable for outdoor use and can be re-use for numerous architectural projects, the finished material used was aluminium.
The overall result of the combination of external signage is a clearly visible office that looks professional and re-enforces the company branding.
