Why South Pole?

Find us on:




Founded in 2008 by Liam Crean — a graphic designer and web developer — South Pole Creative offers design and development services for both print and screen. These include soup-to-nuts branding and identity work, websites that are powerful and easy to operate and quantifiable on-line marketing campaigns to engage with your customers.

South Pole Creative’s core skills lie in the design and development of websites - taking great care to build on a framework for growth, using principles in design, standardisation, structure, speed and ease of use.

This approach goes hand in hand with the software chosen, experts in WordPress and ExpressionEngine — both market leading content management systems that allow you, the client, complete control over your website. We also do complex custom web development projects as and when you need them.

Why South Pole?

Tom Crean, Antarctic explorer, Unsung Hero and immensely brave man. An inspiration to South Pole Creative — helped by Liam’s family ties to the South West of Ireland. Tom Crean has fuelled a fascination for travel and adventure, the glory years of world exploration and a strong sense of responsibility to help keep our wild habitats healthy. As a result South Pole Creative donates as much of its profits as it it can to further polar research and global conservation.

Why South Pole?

If you’d like to know more about Tom Crean then a trip to the Tom Crean South Pole Inn for a pint would be a great place to start.
