Why Avenir?

We may
be exactly the people
you’ve been looking for.

Avenir Design Ltd is a privately owned company founded in 2004 in Castlebar Co. Mayo, Ireland. We bring together a range of backgrounds and experience that we think is a little unique. 

We believe good design is a focused and powerful opportunity to visualise the potential in your business or organisation and present this in a way which communicates itself intuitively to your audience. Your audience will always base their response on the extent to which they trust, understand, identify and engage with you, and that these concepts are communicated most powerfully to your benefit through the careful development and guardianship of your brand through good design. We hope you will take some time to review the work we have created for others and talk to us about how you want to transform your business or organisation.

We’re a little bit different,
for reasons you may value.

  • We’re good. We are the people you come to when you want the job done right. (Look at our portfolio , ask around and decide for yourself).
  • Design & Development Expertise. We make your project look outstanding and build it to the highest industry standards in terms of features, security accessibility and performance.
  • Focus on the Goal. We believe in good design, but understand that design is a tool that needs to deliver and communicate simply and clearly on your behalf.
  • Return on Investment. We will know from experience what’s involved in doing your project right and will quote you fairly, in writing, and stick to that quote throughout. We also don’t undercut competitors, looking to clawback more from you at a later date through overpriced maintenance, support contracts or software licencing.
  • Clear Communication. We take our role in working with you seriously and will always speak openly and directly in advising you.
  • Reliability. We’ve been in business and since 2004 – we’re here to stay and support you into the future.
  • Freedom. We don’t believe in client lock-in with proprietary software or licensing. We favour Open Source solutions which give you peace of mind in your investment.
  • The Right Balance. With backgrounds in design, development, 3D, animation, videography, marketing, public-relations, architecture, business, academia and public service, this mix brings insight, experience, and genuine creativity to the table in all our work for you.

What our clients say.

“I have never come across a company as easy to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone. ”

Working with Avenir was a pleasure from start to finish. The work they carried out was top class and no matter how many problems I threw at them nothing was ever a problem. Responses to queries were extremely fast and anything I asked to be done was done within minutes rather than days. I have never come across a company as easy to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

“ I am very happy and delighted with the new website. David and his team worked tirelessly..I have received so many compliments about the site and business is booming”

Avenir Design was the perfect partner to help me create a professional and clean website for my psychotherapy business. As a small business start-up, this project was a big investment of money, time and energy. It was important to me to work with a company that I sensed would go the extra mile to deliver a website we could both be proud of. I spoke to a number of different people but once I met David I knew that my search was over. I immediately felt at ease with David and really liked the way that he listened carefully to understand my vision for the website.From the initial phone call and meeting with David through the planning and various drafts, David and his staff were on the ball and pulled out all the stops to create the perfect website. David was always responsive and patient. I found him to be creative, innovative and flexible. While nothing was ever too much, he also kept me on track to get the project completed on time and within budget. I really appreciated David’s ability to put his foot down when appropriate while also respecting my right to disagree with him as needed. I am very happy and delighted with the new website. David and his team at Avenir are absolute gentlemen who worked tirelessly in partnership with me to deliver a high quality website which reflected my personality and approach to psychotherapy and counselling. I have received so many compliments about the site and business is booming. If you’re looking for the perfect website for your business, I highly recommend Avenir Web Design. You won’t be disappointed.

“After our introductory meeting with David, his passion, practical approach and knowledge convinced me that Avenir were the right choice.”

Marco’s website had become dated and needed to be refreshed and improved from a functionality point of view, we short-listed Avenir because of their clean and effective design. After our introductory meeting with David, his passion, practical approach and knowledge convinced me that he was the right guy and Avenir were the right choice for our website project. As with all projects we had some challenges along the way, but David’s honest and frank advice was always refreshing and informative and I always felt that David/Avenir were a supportive and positive addition to the team. During one exchange where we were having some challenges around our web-shop and geographies, David said: “tell us the commercial need and we’ll figure out a solution” – which was typical of the solution driven mind-set that Avenir possess. During and post our go-live and David and his team were equally supportive and swift to address any issues – it has reinforced our decision in selecting Avenir as our website partner and I look forward to working with them as we refine and develop our web presence.

“David and the Avenir team seemed to have an uncanny understanding of exactly how we wanted to website to feel, and were completely responsive to our needs. We would 100% recommend Avenir.”

David and the Avenir team seemed to have an uncanny understanding of exactly how we wanted to website to feel, and were completely responsive to our needs. I feel like they listened very carefully to our exact requirements and wishes. Our online shop was quite customised and for every tricky challenge we could come up with they came up with a solution. They training was excellent and I feel very comfortable with day to day changes to the online shop. I also found them great for follow up questions. The website is as great and as personal to our business as we could have envisioned. The online shop runs like a dream and makes our job so much easier. We would 100% recommend Avenir.

“I was blown away by the professionalism and caring attentiveness.. I ended up with a website that far surpassed what I had in my mind. Thank you, for realizing my dream and building a site viewed around the world that has been commented on again and again.  ”

“From my very first point of contact with David Quinn from Avenir I was blown away by the professionalism and caring attentiveness from which he operates. I had done quite a lot of research regarding the design of my new website and indeed rebranding and had various calls with a number of website designers, but from my first phone call with David I knew I had found the man who would make my vision a reality. Indeed he did that but thanks to his gentle persuasion and direction I ended up with a website that far surpassed what I had in my mind. It was as if David saw my vision and then thanks to his immense knowledge, he polished and created a website and brand – one that is the epitome of my business.He was so involved in the process and nothing was ever too much trouble, indeed for my subsequent book launch he and his colleagues worked around the clock, tweaking my website and making it a perfect showcase for my book. David is one of the most honest, sincere men I have ever worked with – he pulls no punches and lets you know what will work and what will not. The onus is on the client to follow the advice for I guarantee you will not be disappointed.His efficient and prompt replies to any questions I raised has to be noted, it was simply incredible. Thank you David, for realizing my dream and building a site viewed around the world that has been commented on again and again for the emotion it conveys.”-Elizabeth
As a leading practise within our sector, I was aware of the impact our web site had in terms of how it reflected our core values. We had developed our first site more than four year ago but it had become tired and needed better functionality. Having commissioned Avenir, they went to great lengths to fully understand our business and the objectives of the site in terms of what we wanted to achieve. They really challenged us to think long and hard about this. The result is fantastic and was developed on a very tight budget. I believe it is now one of the best sites within the sector.
I found David and the team at Avenir to be a great help starting out with a new website.David has great ideas and the know-how to implement them.Straight-talking, helpful and very gifted in design, he was great to do business with. We, at Comfort Solutions Ireland are delighted with the results and hope to work with Avenir for our future web design and requirements.
When the time came to rebuild my website recently, Avenir were the only choice. They did so much more than mere design, however; David pushed me really hard to think about what I wanted to communicate and put huge amounts of work into helping me form a concept for the site, far above and beyond what one expects from a “mere” design bureau. Once that was complete, the design he came up with to match it was absolutely wonderful. I can’t recommend Avenir too highly.
We chose Avenir Design because it was clear from the outset that David was really listening to our needs. As a small community group we were looking for creativity, simplicity, branding, and an interface that could be managed and used by novices in technology. We got it all from Avenir and the end result surpassed all our expectations. Customer service before, during and after going live was fast, efficient and friendly. We were sensitively guided and supported to self management. We are indebted to Avenir and proud of our success with our community website.
After evaluating several alternatives, we choose to work with the team at Avenir because of their sense of purpose & understanding of the importance of branding. Avenir provided a professional, integrated service which resulted in a consistency of our brand from print to web. They took NEA’s vision and turned it into reality following through from design to implementation and achieved a result that we are proud of. The Avenir team demonstrated a flexibility & understanding of what we wanted to convey and we found our meetings with them to be friendly & professional. Avenir continues to be our designers of choice.
We found Avenir to be a highly professional organisation. They came highly recommended and we knew we had made the right decision when we started to work with them. They listened to our ideas and came and visited our company to get to know us better and fully understand our needs. The result was a highly innovative advertising campaign coupled with a bright new website, easy to manage and update, and they provided full training and back up support too. Customer care is very important in our business and it’s great to deal with another business who believes in it too.
Leave No Trace Ireland highly recommends Avenir Design. David and his team guided Leave No Trace through each step of the process in creating our new website. They have done a fantastic job in both the functionality of the site and the visual impact it has on our audience. The site is intuitive, easy to navigate and it has been a pleasure to work with Avenir on this project. We have already received several queries from our member network with regards to who designed and created the site.
It was a pleasure working with David at Avenir on our new website and logo for the practise. David's knowledge, patience & understanding was invaluable in making the experience a positive one, we are delighted with the end results as the website is visually pleasing, functional and user friendly for both ourselves to manage & our clients to use. We are delighted to recommend the fantastic service provided by Avenir.
Thanks David, It's a rare pleasure (you might be surprised to know), to meet a company and that delivers what they said they would deliver, when they would deliver it, without a migrating charge rate. When it comes to web design - customer service is as important as the design itself - especially after-sales service and Avenir clearly understand this.
Having used Avenir to create our corporate branding with which we were delighted we approached them to design our web-site. What they created exceeded our expectations; we are thrilled with the end result. Their team were on hand every step of the way and were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
I spent a long time visiting various web design companies before coming across Avenir. As I began to work with Avenir, I realised there was more to this web design company than just design. This company knows how to listen and communicate with its customers. They were able to take my raw idea and work it through with me until they produced a style, design and image that conveyed exactly the kind of message I want to present to my customers. Excellent design skills, an exacting eye for detail and a real understanding of customer’s needs is the hallmark of a top quality design company like Avenir.
The joy of working with David is that he really listened to me and created a website that totally reflected my vision of Cobwebs. The response from visitors to the site has been overwhelming with many people travelling long distances to visit the shop. I'm absolutely thrilled with David's work, both aesthetically and with the financial rewards it has brought me.
