About CUBE Design

CUBE Design is a visual communications consultancy based in Pottery Road, Dún Laoghaire. We create unique brands for small businesses with big ideas, through the power of good branding and professional design. We harness the the subconscious mind and dig deep in our brand strategy workshops with our clients to discover the truths behind their business, and use our findings and design research as the framework onto which we build the visual brand.

We believe in creativity, openness, truth and honesty, fairness and respect. We enjoy working with clients who share our values. At CUBE Design we relish creative challenges, and by working alongside our clients as partners we seek to develop long term, and supportive relationships.


Barbara Monahan, Founder and Lead Designer

Barbara is the founder of CUBE Design, its lead designer and visual brand consultant, with three decades of graphic design and branding experience. Barbara’s core values of professionalism, trust-based relationships and delighting her clients with creative solutions are always at the heart of everything she does. After studying Visual Communications in the College of Marketing and Design in Dublin, Barbara moved to London where she qualified in Advanced Book Design with the London College of Printing. During her London years, she worked for Bedford Square Press, a social issues publishing house, before joining a large charitable organisation, NCVO. Her work for NCVO gave her a broad range of design experience from small leaflets and brochures to exhibition work, posters, annual reports and several monthly magazines. Her involvement with a rebranding exercise for NCVO reignited her interest in branding and visual identity.

As a registered member of the Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI), Barbara adheres to their code of conduct and best practices for designers. She keeps up to date with developments in the design profession through participation in Design Enterprise Skillnet events and training. Barbara is also a member of the Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Chamber of Commerce.
