Curve. Why. We. Are.

Curve is a diverse creative studio with a focus on Industrial Design and Commercial Photography

At Curve we have a passion for everything truly creative. 

With backgrounds in photography and design we aim to combine these various creative arts to achieve a visual and experiential synergy throughout every project.

Design

Curve Creative is a young company. We founded in mid 2011 but since then we have been moving and expanding quickly. Curve launched it's own range of 3D printed gadgets in it's first year and have been busy working on a number of exciting client projects spanning product design, brand identity, web and event design. 

We divide our time between working on our own brand products and working on our clients’ projects. This makes us a very diverse studio, allows us to be flexible and helps to bring more energy to all of our projects, something which our clients feel is invaluable. 

Our Products 

We’re always being inspired, whether working in the studio or when in the shower. It seemed logical for us to develop our own products because we genuinely have a passion for designing new things. 

We take our ideas from inklings and turn them into products that are successful and meaningful to us. One of these products, the Nanolet has been our first success. It is being sold around the globe and has been featured in countless blogs and magazines. 

This reassures us that we’re moving in the right direction, keep an eye out for more of our products we have lots of things in the pipeline!

Client products

The companies that work with us usually have an idea of what they want, but we can help articulate their ideas, or, we can start at the drawing board to push them in a new and interesting direction. So far our clients have ranged from large multinational companies to small start-ups. Our work for these companies has been very varied which helps us to build a diverse portfolio and keeps pushing our experience and expertise to the next level. 

We can help you with generating new concepts, developing existing ranges, identifying with specific user groups and branding. Making sure products are sustainable and easy to use whilst looking good is a big part of Curve Creative.

If you have an idea, or maybe you like what we do and want a little bit of us in your products, just drop us an email.

Photography

Photography is one of the most important processes in life. Recording moments never to happen again. 

At Curve we have a passion for photography and an interest in many different kinds of photography along with over 10 years of experience with Alan and Ben, both having worked as wedding photographers separately and who have experience shooting sports, events, product, jewellery and studio portraiture.

A huge grounding of our creative passion started with photography and evolved into design hence the two sisters Curve Creative and Curve Photo. We have a visual passion that extends far into any project we do. A good understanding of composition and the rules that make a good photograph have applications in many other creative fields, and also a knowledge of other creative disciplines can ad great insight when undertaking photo projects. 

For example, as designers as well as photographers, and with degree's in industrial design we are well versed in the requirement for making products look good and the best ways to portray your products to show them in the most meaningful way.

If you have a need for photography let us know, whether head shots for your website, action shots of your insane sports skills, shots of your products or jewellery, pictures of your business for a new site or coverage of an event...

We offer a quality service and create professional images for our clients. Don't settle for anything less.

Who. We. Are.

Alan Harrison

Alan has vast experience in industrial and product design. His industry experience on a wide range of projects has given him an adept overview of the commercial process and marketing insight. Whilst never away from the computer or sketchpad Alan also nurtures many other interests in creative fields such as photography, animation and painting, and uses these skills to enhance his design work at Curve.  

Paget McCormack

Pag is our engineer designer. He is methodical in everything he designs and never overlooks the smallest of details. His commitment to detail makes sure that his designs are functional and efficient.  This combined with his good sense of aesthetic proportions and his ability to learn and adapt quickly makes him an ultimate designer.

Ben Millett

Ben is mult-skilled. He can perform highly in any design discipline without compromise while also bringing his passion and background in video and photography to the table. He overlaps on so many areas it is impossible to confine him to just one. His passion and creativity is a main driving force at Curve Creative.

All graduates of Industrial Design at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin the team has a passion for good design and functional solutions and have a genuine interest in any creative project.

KNOW NO BOUNDS

Curve is a design and innovative solutions studio. We create impact through design and photography and back it up with logistics. We help bring your product or business to life. 

Let's think outside the box and see what happens.

Our services include industrial design consultancy, business development, commercial photography, product logistics sourcing, business ideation and brand development. 

Design Consultancy

First and foremost Curve is about design. Industrial design is our heart but we love all kinds and cherish opportunities to get involved in diverse projects. Our projects showcase some of our work and you can read more about our philosophies in our design section. If you are working on a project and need some help with design or have an idea you want to make into a reality come and talk to us.

Commercial Photography

We love great images and we strive to create great images. The world is a visual place and whatever you business it can make use of strong images to portray your product / personnel / services / headquarters, and is an essential cog in making an effective website work. We help people every day with their image requirements and photography strategy in their businesses. Don't undervalue the meaning and power good photography can lend.

Logistics Sourcing / Consultancy

We like thinking about the best ways to move stuff around. A good or bad logistics plan can be the make or break in any project. Quite often we see logistics and freight left as last thoughts in projects and sometimes the consequences are drastic resulting in unfulfilled or late orders, fines, and worst of all, playing catch up to try and put a logistics system in place after everything is set up. 

Business Development

Every business has room to grow, to be more efficient, to be simpler and to save costs. We take your product, your service, and your business and break it down to it's core. Through design lead thinking we can re-energise your business. Our business development program is where all our skills come together. Utilising our design, branding, packaging, photography, logistics and business experience to kickstart your company. We work with companies that want to be leaders in their fields, who want to be the very best. We don't just help put your company on the map, we help put it in the centre.
