We have been awarded the coveted Business All-Star One To Watch accreditation.
This is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria. The accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr. Briga Hynes of the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.
“We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least three interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.” said Dr. Briga Hynes.
We were thrilled to share the spotlight with another local business, Vixi Gifting who were also All Star Accredited. Both businesses are driven by female entrepreneurs and a passion for creativity. Vixi Gifting is a new, curated gifting agency founded by sisters Melodie and Fenella Fox, and their mother Nicky Fox in Ardfinnan. Joanne and Melodie were previously students in Loreto Secondary School, Clonmel together and both went on to study Graphic Design in separate colleges before building their businesses. Both businesses came together to accept their awards recently, and were delighted to celebrate the occasion in the company of Siobhan Ambrose.
This award is a true honour and endorses our dedication, creativity and hard work in every project we take on. We have been in business just one year and seven months, and during this time we have established ourselves in exceeding client expectations and have built many long term relationships as a result. This accreditation is an outstanding achievement and recognises the hard work and dedication put in by our team to provide a best in class service to all our customers, both big and small.
We have a small team made up of Joanne O’Herlihy, our managing director, Aoife Duff, our graphic designer, Shauna Power, our junior graphic designer, and Daire Joyce, our web developer. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the All-Ireland Business Foundation for this award. To all our clients old and new, this wouldn’t be possible without you and we look forward to continuing to work with you and supporting your business in the future. And finally to our wonderful team of designers and web developers who bring these projects to life.
Our studio is based at 18 Parnell Street and we look forward to continuing our creative work and building on our services provided. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for JL Designs
