Dublin freelance designer Neve Connolly’s hand-crafted confection was a unaninous decision.
Hand-crafted, you say?
All the line work was done using black thread, which is something I’ve been playing around with lately. Once that was finished I used sewing needle to pierce little holes in the letters. I then mounted it onto a piece of glass and lit it from underneath. I wanted the ‘Le Cool’ to glow like the lights of a city seen when flying at night in an airplane, or hot air balloon, whichever air transport you prefer. The lines and pockets of colour depicting the energy/divilment created by people out and about, crossing paths, enjoying this great city. Le Cool at the heart of it all.
