Black Pug Studio — Magazine #2
Issue #2 | March & April 2019
Greetings to all!
It’s good to see you again around here! We are a bit late for this issue of our Black Pug Studio Magazine, but there are many good reasons why! The team was very busy and we worked hard to release a few interesting projects for our clients as well as working internally on our products. Brace yourself for some juicy and tasty content!
WestBIC — Release
WestBIC - Business and Innovation Centre, Galway, Ireland
WestBIC provides advice and services for entrepreneurs planning or starting a new business in the west of Ireland.
We released WestBIC’s website and it received great positive attention from various major groups in their network. Working on such an interesting project was a delight for us as we were able to create a new visual online experience for their audience. Whether you are an investor, an entrepreneur, a startup or an active partner of WestBIC’s network, we believe that we delivered an experience of quality that represents well what they do.
Creative Accelerators for Sustainable Tourism. Over 100 SMEs across Europe will be supported by CAST.
Following our exciting work for WestBIC and the Midlands Engineering Network, we were approached to work on a European program to support Creative Accelerators for Sustainable Tourism, in short CAST! Over 100 SMEs across Europe will be supported by CAST. Didn’t we tell you that it was exciting?
“CAST brings together a consortium of organisations with enormous experience in working with creative industries across Europe and stimulating their creation growth and internationalisation — as well as in the tourism sector”
Defining a look for a Sustainable Tourism in Europe wasn’t an easy task. We tried to keep it simple and functional so that users would find their way without encountering any bumps. We opted for a traditional scrollable website and dressed the site with round shapes with colors recalling the CAST logo.
The SmartMap is one of the core pieces of the experience on the website. There anyone can find they entire directory of European Tourism on a map and locate all the partners and network across all Europe.

Harvest — Galway Technology Centre
Growing World Class Teams, Brands & Product from Galway - Harvest Galway
Harvest is a bi-annual event about people, innovation and growing world class organisations from the West of Ireland.
Galway Technology Centre organizes a great bi-annual event in Galway to talk about entrepreneurs, people, growing companies and organizations, etc. Each time Harvest lines up an impressive cast of speakers and leaders from internationally focused brands to tell their story and how they grew their business through innovation and positioning.
We had the immense chance to make their promotional website and we’d love for you to check it out because it is one of our preferred creations at the Studio. We designed it with the intent of having every screen filling the entire viewport and as you scroll it unveils the next section. Very responsive and clean, the goal of the site was to encourage people to book tickets. It did very well as the event ended up exceeding booking expectations. Many key actors of the innovation scene in Galway were present as well and engaging conversations were flowing!
In our prestigious range of services, you can find THRONE-Recruiting! We talked about them in our previous issue but their website wasn’t fully released. Today you can enjoy our work and see how we made this happen.
For our viewport experiences we tend to prefer relative units so that the design maintains a cohesive render. Not always the best choice, but in this case we believed it would suit the premium quality and expectations of our client. Beyond the beautiful front-end, we also worked on a very efficient proprietary CRM (made by Black Pug Studio) and our clients love it!
We were so happy with our development and the features that we released that we decided to use it for ourselves as well!

French Tech Dublin — New Logo
Quick update on the French Tech Dublin who is now officially recognized as part of the larger global French Tech. We are extremely proud of this achievement and we are going to be working on a new version of the website to unleash a modern new stack with a crispy and tasty design. For now, let’s give you a swift look at the new upcoming logo we re-designed.
Premium Design — Branding Books
Part of the premium design work we provide at the Studio are our branding services. We take pride in our process to deliver high-end logos, branding books, and craft the message around them.
Chipright and THRONE-Recruiting both benefited from our attention to detail to build strong visual branding guidelines. We know how important it is to keep design consistent and to educate an audience to recognize and attach a brand to its quality services and/or products. We’d like to give you a small snapshot of the work in this issue! Keep an eye on our Behance and Instagram pages as we will populate them with more of our high-end productions very soon.
