About 2b:creative

Stretching creativity

We don’t do jargon…

We don’t wear designer suits…

we listen, we learn, we create

We listen to you

Good design begins with understanding.
We recognise that you are at the heart of each project. It’s your vision, your aspiration, your organisation. By listening closely to your aims and objectives, by learning about your products, your services, your target markets and your competitors, we can reach inside your mind and fully interpret your creative requirements.

We shall apply our professional design experience to go beyond the obvious, to stretch the boundaries of creativity and deliver inspirational design concepts.

We work with you

We build partnerships.

Throughout the duration of each project we will work closely with you to ensure that the final results will completely fulfill all of your aspirations and you will return again to enjoy the 2b experience in the future.

We don’t complicate things. We don’t relay your messages through account managers and support staff. Taking a personal approach is an essential element of our service and you will have direct access to the designers working on your project at all times.

We’ve matured…
but retained our youthful exuberance

The story so far

Since opening for business in 2002 we’ve delivered hundreds of projects across many sectors including, engineering & construction, education, tourism & leisure, food & drink, public sector authorities and a varied range of other private sector businesses throughout Ireland and the U.K.

Our experience has continued to grow and our enthusiasm for creating great design is still as keen as ever. So too is our belief that outstanding customer service is central to successful business.

Whether you are a sole trader or a multi-national corporation, we offer the same commitment to quality and professionalism, and the same personal investment in working with you to make your project a success.

This is what we do best

We soak up everything we see and hear, and use it to create design that is original, dynamic and relevant.

Why choose 2b:creative?

Modesty aside, we think we’re pretty good. Not just because we’ve produced some great designs but because we’re always stretching ourselves, striving for new ideas and innovative approaches that will make your project unique and therefore highly effective.

We are here to make the creative process an easy and enjoyable one for you. Design is exciting, and we want you to be inspired by what we can bring to each and every creative project and what that will achieve for your organisation

Meet The Team

Don’t let Simon Bruce’s highly-patterned (some might say garish) shirts fool you – he’s a serious, consummate professional with over 100* years experience of managing design and production projects. A member of the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management, Simon brings an infectious enthusiasm and a wealth of knowledge to any project and will be your primary contact within 2b:creative.

A rugby man to the core, his long winter months are spent following the Ulster and Ireland teams, however Simon’s guilty pleasure is that he is also a lifelong supporter of Tottenham Hotspur, one of the Premiership’s perfectly adequate and frequently under-achieving football teams.

(*30 years actually)

Despite Senior Designer Martin Barlow’s worryingly obsessive relationship with his iPad, this lightly-tattooed ex-biker’s design philosophy is that all great work begins with a pencil and a blank piece of paper. In fact, Martin is never happier than when he is creating cartoons and illustrated stories for the younger members of his family.

“My dream job would be to design and brand a pro cycling team – I have four bikes in the shed myself, but my wife keeps threatening to sell them”, Martin says.

Senior Designer Damian McCann is a paradox. A rugged outdoorsman perfectly at home holidaying in a tent under a hedge like some kind of Bear Grylls, Damian also has to be within arm’s reach of his Xbox and whatever latest gadget the evil forces of technology have compelled him to purchase. A supremely talented designer and coffee enthusiast, he has been known to have clients walking barefoot through their place of work in search of that elusive perfect photo opportunity. We forget why.
