Green is quite the refreshing color with so many positive meanings behind it. It is the color of nature, energy, renewal, growth, hope and life. But green also happens to be the color of Ireland and is associated with several Irish traditions and folklore like four-leaf clovers that bring good luck and leprechauns, and corporate logo designs.

That aside, Ireland is also home to plenty of talented people like actors, singers, inventors, engineers and YouTube personalities. For this article, we will be paying tribute to some of Ireland’s most talented and accomplished graphic designers whose works have been respected and shared from around the world.
