From top: Designs by Murtles, Francesco Flemini and the winning design from Eoin O’Connor.

You might recall last week’s plea for a logo to go on hi viz jackets and whatnot for the newly formed St James and District Residents’ Association aiming to make that part of Dublin city a little NICER.

 I presented the final three designs to our meeting last night. Thank you Eoin O’Connor, of ONOKONO Design Studio for the winning entry (pic 3)
We were all delighted with your submission, really we were, and everyone could immediately see the road outline and “fountain”, the [St James] triangle, in your design. Thanks also to, Murtles and Francesco for their great designs and thanks to Jean O’Brien who contacted me with advice and an offer to do the work at a later stage if we didn’t find a winner :)

    The second one looks like something you’d see on the cover of a ‘Your child and bullying’ booklet from the 1980s.

    Thanks everyone for the entries! Fair play to Francesco, whom I think submitted all the way from Italy! Broadsheet’s reach is far and wide.
    And to Murtles who has a far better grasp of word art than I, your ‘draft’ was brilliant, I really liked the tank and UFOs …and I take it you’re a fan of Frazer …maybe?

    Eoin’s winning entry really did light up the room… cheers Eoin! :)

    Much appreciated!

      I wasn’t make a syringe ‘joke’

      Obviously it’s based on the geographical area, but it looks like a syringe.

      i thought the same thing.

      it could also look like a pen drawing a line? which could be a nice metaphor.

    Ah that’s really great. The Fountain is really representative of the area. Was traditionally a meeting place for the men to meet and talk – residents of the area would request to be carried round the fountain 3 times on the way to the church for their funeral.

    Or maybe that was just me granda playing a bad joke on us…….
