Copper Reed Studio were honored to be commissioned by St. Joseph’s Secondary School in Spanish Point to design and produce a celebratory book titled ‘Salty Faces and Ferocious Appetites’. From the project’s outset we had the privilege of working with Anne Jones, a past pupil of the school, whose enthusiasm for books can only be described as infectious. Anne had taken up the editorial challenge some time before she arrived at our studio for the first of many exploratory book project meetings. We were soon put in the picture to the extent of Anne’s ambition for this project. Her objectives were simple – excellence in the vital elements of book design, graphic reproduction, book production values and photography.

Google Local Business Submissions
Local search is becoming a very important factor within the search engine ranking results, as people like to know the location of the business they are seeking. Google local business submissions are the best way to promote small or medium sized businesses in particular.
A large proportion of search queries that include a place name in it will return a map along with a list of the requested services in that area. The majority of the time, this map will appear at the top of the search rankings.
This service is just one of the many ways of attracting traffic to your web page. Talk to a member of the Copper Reed Studio web design Limerick team for more information on 061 400620
So you have a new website – now what? just because you can see the site online doesn’t mean anyone will. Without some targeted marketing your site may not be ranked by search engines for 18months, if at all.

Launching a new website is no different – you need to promote it’s existence and drive some all important sustainable traffic. Read more…

Natura 2000 is the centrepiece of EU nature & biodiversity policy. It is an EU wide network of nature protection areas established under the 1992 Habitats Directive. The aim of the network is to assure the long-term survival of Europe’s most valuable and threatened species and habitats. LIFE is the EU’s financial instrument supporting environmental and nature conservation projects throughout the EU.
The Mulkear LIFE project, a LIFE Natura 2000 project, involves the restoration of the lower Shannon SAC for Sea Lamprey, Atlantic Salmon and the European Otter. Project Partners Shannon Regional Fisheries Board (Project Sponsors & Overall Project Beneficiary), Office of Public Works (Associate Beneficiary) & Limerick County Council (Associate Beneficiary) identified that the Mulkear LIFE website would be of critical importance in supporting all educational and media work, and would be a key tool for their information dissemination work and public awareness work.
To this end Copper Reed Studio was invited to submit a proposal for the design and development of an interactive website for the Mulkear LIFE project and was delighted to have been selected as the winning proposal on the basis of quality of website design and development, prior experience in the design and delivery of Natura 2000 websites, see woodlandrestoration.ie and burrenlife.com, resources to guarantee delivery within the very tight timeframes, and cost effectiveness.
Phase One of the Mulkear LIFE was designed and delivered within three weeks and can be viewed at www.mulkearlife.com
