WHAT’S THE STORY?

We create concepts and designs for a wide range of visual communication material such as, packaging, publishing, branding, marketing, advertising and large format signage. The White bear have almost 25 years of experience working as in house designers as well as freelance, until we decided to join forces!

Having studied together in Athlone IT we, Philip & Tomas both did post graduate design courses in London and continued to work in the UK for two years. Philip specialised in the editorial market while Tomas worked with retail branding with an emphasis on packaging. In 2016 while we had both been freelancing for a couple of years we decided over a drink or two that we should start our own company, based on the amount of experience we had both gained over the years.

And so it was that in February 2016, The White Bear was formed. Having started in a kitchen in Howth, we have developed a consistent and growing number of clients and now have a space in La Catredal Studios, Dublin 8, amongst an inspiring community of other creatives in one of the most unique parts of Dublin. Our ethos is simple; we work closely with our clients, offering a personable and trusting relationship, while always meeting our deadlines and not betraying the creative process.
