Client: Fitness for Kids, Sharon Flanagan Owner – Childcare and Fitness Expert
Fitness for Kids was founded by Sharon Flanagan (Walsh). Her two greatest passions have always been working with children and exercise and in 2015 Sharon combined both passions in her own niche business Fitness for Kids. Sharon initially created her own logo and website which was a great success and established a colour scheme and brand that was cheerful and bright. In 2019 Sharon approached us to develop her logo further and create a new responsive website that would be appealing to parents and children alike. It needed to be a cheerful site where parents could view and book online classes and programs easily so it had to be user friendly and responsive. We wanted a bright colourful and energetic feel to the website that would mimic the quality and energy Sharon brings to every class. We enlisted the help of an amazing photographer Gillian Buckley to capture all the energy and fun! We are very happy with the result.
Testimonial: I couldn’t recommend Elaine enough. From her friendly, approachable personality to her quality of work and professionalism, she is amazing at what she does. My logo and website went beyond my expectations and I am so happy with them. Thank you Elaine.

Strandum HR is a dynamic innovative software development company with a total focus on delivering “Best in Class” software solutions to meet the exacting needs of an organisation’s HR department. StrandumHR have been a client for over 18 years. During that time Hensman Design have created numeras print and display projects. In 2018 they approached us to redesign the Strandum website as it was quite outdated. After a few brief meetings to discuss the brand and imagery we established that the main focus of the website should be to show the range of services but also convey that Strandum is 100% privately owned and all product research, development, support and maintenance is conducted onsite from its headquarters in Blanchardstown and that support is only a phone call away at all times. Hensman Design has also responsible for a multitude of printed collateral, press advertising, enews design and delivery.

Client: At Home Pampering, Karen Bowers, Owner – Beauty Specialist
At Home Pampering was launched in 2009 by Karen Bowers, Beauty Specialist. Karen saw a gap in the market for the delivery of premium beauty treatments to clients in their home, place of business, care home or hospital bed. Karen’s priority at all times is quality, quality in her delivery of services but also quality in her branding and its application. The original brief was to design a logo as well as a services brochure and other marketing collateral, which proved very successful. Karen’s client list grew significantly over the following two years which prompted the development of a new website. In 2011 we first launched athompampering.ie. Since then we have updated the company logo and the website with a complete new look. Karen understands that regularly updating the website with new content is of paramount importance for page ranking, we also integrated the website with with local seo entries which has resulted in new business enquiries on a daily basis.
From the moment I met Elaine at Hensman Design I felt she had an immediate understanding of what I needed. At home pampering was a very new business and I had no idea of where to start, so I wanted to use someone who had the experience to show my business as being professional with high quality services. From the day I started to use my business cards and brochures the feed back has been absolutely brilliant, likewise my website has proved very successful for me. It gets daily hits which always converts to new business. I constantly receive compliments on my company’s branding. I cannot recommend Elaine and her team enough!

Client: Dental House, Caslteknock Orthodontics, Pearls Dental
Dental House is a full Service dental clinic in Dublin 2, owned and operated by Dr. Ronan Perry (President of the Orthodontic Society of Ireland). In 2017 they approached us to redesign the Dental House website. After a few brief meetings to discuss the brand and imagery we established that the main focus of the website should be to show the range of services but also convey that it is a specialist clinic with a complete range of dental services across all practices. Upon seeing the results with the main practice website, the sister practices were subsequently updated too. We also design and print a multitude of collateral, press advertising, outdoor signage, digital signage, online advertising and posters for all clinics.
Exterion Advert (Maximum duration 10 seconds)
We engaged Elaine’s services to give our website a much-needed face-lift. Every step of the process was a smooth one and Elaine more than fulfilled our brief. We were so thrilled with the results that we got Elaine to design window graphics and signage for us to compliment it. The final product was so tasteful and on-brand. We would not hesitate to recommend Elaine to anyone and we will certainly be working with her again in the future. A true professional and a pleasure to work with.

Client: Ashdown Controls Group, Dublin • London • Belfast.
Ashdown Controls Group are among the largest installers and service providers of Building Management Systems in Ireland and the UK. They have grown steadily over the past number of years to become one of the largest independent providers of Integrated Building Energy Management Systems. Hensman Design has been working closely with Ashdown Controls for over a decade on print related projects, web design and online newsletters design. We designed and developed their original website in 2010 and re launched it again in 2013. The new website includes a detailed project portfolio as well as a news area and careers section. Onsite photography was organised with Gillian Buckley for the office interior and a challenging fleet shot.
Client: Fagan Bergin Solicitors, Dublin 1.
Owner and Principal Solicitor Mary Bergin came to us to design a logo for her firm. The firm had been known as James Fagan Solicitors for a very long time and had historical connections in the area. Mary didn’t want to loose that connection and chose to include the name Fagan along with her own name Bergin in the redesign. We decided to go with the initials FB which posed an obvious design challenge! After playing with various layouts we came up with the above logo. The F was placed facing backwards to signify the past and the B looks ahead into the future. A full suite of stationery was designed ad printed and shortly after that we designed a new website. Mary did not want to completely rely on stock photography and also wanted to show the authenticity of the business, its location and her people. On site photography was organised with the talented Gillian Buckley. The finished website can be seen here.
