Since 2015 Absolute have been working with the Office of the President of Ireland to create artworks for various projects for President Michael D Higgins. In correspondence with office staff at the Áras an Uachtaráin, we work together to complete design work to an extremely high standard.
We have designed various reports through the years, produced bilingually in English and Irish, and finished with fine quality stock covers displaying ornate gold foil harps. Likewise, we also design and produce other publications and booklets for the President’s speeches, updating the design each time to reflect a new communication.
One special project we undertake each year is the Centenarian Coin/Medal. The President marks the birthday of each resident in Ireland over the age of 100 years with a special commemorative coin in a presentation box, along with a congratulatory signed letter. A new coin is designed for each year reflecting the general themes of the passing of knowledge through generations and the importance of family.
Annually, we also design the President’s official greeting cards for St Patrick’s Day, Christmas and New Year’s.
