A smart city is a place where the traditional networks and services are made more efficient with the use of digital and telecommunication technologies, for the benefit of inhabitants and businesses. Smart Dublin is an initiative of the four local authorities that make up the Dublin Region. 

IDEA were delighted to have been appointed by Dublin City Council to develop a contemporary, dynamic brand for Smart Dublin and to design and programme a vibrant, responsive website to reflect the innovative nature of the Smart Cities initiative. With a tight deadline for launching at the Startup Gathering it was all hands on deck to ensure that the deadline was met! This is Phase 1 of the Smart Dublin website which can be viewed hereWe are currently working on the development of Phase 2 of the website which will be live in January 2016.

  • “I was looking in the UK and Ireland for an International English speaking agency to manage and advise on our Ecommerce and online marketing strategy. We eventually chose IDEA and are very happy with the results. In addition to strategy and implementation, IDEA also trained our senior staff to manage new online systems, so that we would be totally self- sufficient. We have expanded our target markets to Russia and again IDEA have advised and assisted in the implementation of an eStrategy for this market with great results”
