Meet The Dimple, Behind Dimple Design
Hello, I’m Ellen Egan
I’ll level with you.. I’m not all business. I’m up for the craic, and damn good at what I do.
I’m passionate and creative, and I nurture each individual project with precision and care.
In a nutshell, that’s all you need to know!
Why Do I Do What I Do?
i do it for the grá
One of the driving factors for starting Dimple Design was that I wanted to give my all to projects. I wanted to get really stuck in and get to know the people behind the business and their mission.
I love to be involved in big projects that make an impact. This is why I believe branding is quite literally my jam!
Creating genuine, meaningful connections is a big factor in how I work and why I will literally be your brand cheerleader. I am process-driven, I love being part of your story and helping you reach even beyond your goals.
Here’s to working with the right people and really making something special happen.
What’s In A Name?
why ‘dimple design’?
So, long story short, I have an unusual dimple on the apple of one cheek. It only come’s out when I am having a proper good laugh and it has always been a conversation point throughout my life.
Dimples spark joy and curiosity, people can’t help but feel subtly endeared by them. (It’s science!)
When starting my business I knew I wanted my tone of voice to be fun, friendly, and professional. My dimple has been my personal brand my whole life unbeknownst to myself, so why not work with it.
I figured, if people can be half as interested in Dimple Design, as they have been in my trademark dimple, I will be off to a good start!
What Does Dimple Design Do?
we understand how branding can impact your business
First impressions go a long way, and you need to make a good one! Consumers judge your brand in less than a minute and buy based on trust. That’s a whole lot of pressure on a first impression. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. 😉
we value brand strategy and bespoke design
We want to get to know you and your business. We will go through an in depth brand audit to really make sure you’re communicating with your consumers in the best way to solve their problems. We take this, and your opinions into our design and research stage, and invest time in creating something bespoke to you.
we work with your company structure
Every business has different needs and capabilities. We offer a range of services for different company structures. Want ready to use content? No worries. Want some editable templates? Let’s do it!
We want you to be able to use your design assets, in whatever way works for you.

What Our Clients Are Saying
Helena & Tracey
“Making a Brand vision reality”
Dimple Design is infectious! Working with Ellen was such a pleasure - her knowledge and enthusiasm for our brand creation was such a joy and a wonderful experience.
When we were starting our business we both knew that a good, professional brand presence was important. We wanted something that would represent our vision, capture attention and allow our brand to grow and develop. We worked with Dimple Design on Brand Strategy & Research, Brand Identity Design and got a full and easy to use Logo Suite. This left us more time to focus on our business , knowing the brand was being looked after.
We were blown away by Ellen’s attention to detail and personal touch from start to finish. We never felt pressured and the process felt very organic. Ellen made us aware of potential hazards with some of our ideas and how they would not translate well on certain application - that advice was priceless! We continue to recommend Dimple Design to any businesses that want to take their branding to the next level!

“Very Professional, Flexible & An Excellent Communicator”
Ellen at Dimple Design worked with Clonmel Junction Arts Festival on delivering the 2022 festival brochure. She was very professional, flexible and an excellent communicator at all times. She told us what she needed to get the job over the line. She delivered more than what was promised and the feedback on the design has been really positive.

“Ellen just gets it and is so easy to work with.”
We started working with Ellen in Dimple Design almost a year ago and she's been an absolute breath of fresh air. So easy to work with and amazingly productive and she has done some brilliant work for us in that time, across a whole range of areas from POS to Sales & Investment brochures to Event Graphics to Ads to Merchandise. She's ultra organised meaning that as a client you get great value for money, and she's great also at acting as a custodian for your brand - challenging (in a good way) and making sure you make good decisions. We've no hesitation in recommending her to anyone, honestly you won't regret working with her.
“I would thoroughly recommend.”
Ellen and the team at Dimple Design are true professionals. They really know how to make your brand sparkle and shine. Ellen in particular is also extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of design and thoroughly “gets” your brand!
And once you work with her, she becomes your official brand champion too. I would thoroughly recommend.

“To say that I am delighted with the end product is an understatement!”
I reached out to Ellen for help designing an eBook I had written. From the very start she was extremely professional, always replying to emails in a timely manner and keeps me in the loop about how the project was developing every step of the way.
It was my first time working with a designer and I was unsure of what to expect but Ellen made sure I had total clarity on the exact scope of the project and what the process of working together would look like.
Ellen makes sure to get a clear understanding of your long term vision for your brand so that the aesthetics of her design perfectly match the vibe and values you are looking to portray in your business.
To say that I am delighted with the end product is an understatement - the eBook was absolutely stunning and portrayed my brand values perfectly. I cannot wait to launch my project! It also feels great knowing that I have an excellent designer who I can rely on to deliver the best work for all my future design needs.
