Stars of the small screen

Stars of the small screen Image

We're on the telly! Franco-German TV, but still. Channel Arte filmed recently at the Merck Sharp and Dohme plant in Carlow and our work was featured in the background. The world map graphic was just one small part of an extensive environmental graphics programme designed and produced by Fire. We were delighted to get incredibly positive feedback on the work from MSD, and the planning for the second phase of this interpretive, placemaking project is already underway here in the design studio. Keep an eye on our Hot Projects as we'll be posting pics of the entire project in the near future.

A Hive of Activity

A Hive of Activity Image


Fire is a hive of activity these days, inside and out. Leszek has been a busy bee trying to attract swarms to his bait hives on the roof of our offices here in Synge street. It's fascinating stuff and it's created a real buzz around the office, these puns are only going to get worse from me over the next few weeks. If you have a swarm of bees that you want to get rid of lets us know, Leszek would only be delighted to come and take them off your hands. Follow the bait hives progress on the blog beesofinnisfree.
