RareKind x Iconic Offices
In late Summer ’17 we were asked by Joe McGinley and his team to come over to create artworks and way-finding though-out their new 6 story shared office building in St Stephens Sq. central Dublin.
We produced branding for the building named The Greenway along with branding for the Vandal Cafe situated on the ground floor.
Each floor in the building was given it’s own colour way which went though the floor appearing in the artworks. Hand painted way-finding flows though the whole building including the stairwells. We brought the full team as well as Pref who produced a piece in his unique style, 1 word forst floor, 2 words second, 3 words third etc. we also had Irish graffiti artist Omin to join us.
