A suite of elements including wayfinding, applied arts, lettering, film and photographs for Tom dePaor’s purpose built cinema in Galway, Ireland.

An integrated scheme of hand-painted lettering; illuminated multi-layered illuminated glass panels in bespoke sapele frames; neon signage; manifestations. The legal requirement for ‘manifestations’ on glazed planes is handled as a sequence of scaled circles which echo the set of 22 windows devised by dePaor in conjunction with Pat Scott.

A short film of the drapes for the cinemas and the neon lettering and a set of photographs are made in conjunction with this.
