Tony Brennan - designer,  Octoberstone Director and SEO strategist

Designer & web strategist

I'm Tony Brennan, designer and joint managing director at Octoberstone. I'm responsible for web design, construction and search engine optimisation (SEO).

We built our first website in 1998 and have been designing bespoke websites ever since.

Born in Tubbercurry Co. Sligo, I set up Octoberstone with Thomas Murphy in 1990, then specialising in graphic design for print. Today, we have evolved and design for web, print and all inbetween.

Designing and creating the content for a page on your website is a skill that is not learned once. Much like driving or building a block wall, it takes years of practice to become a good web designer.

Sites built on WordPress

For business sites we opt to build on WordPress using the Genesis framework.

Some sites we've designed on WordPress:

One of the plus sides to using WordPress is that we can make its publishing dashboard uncluttered and bespoke just for your requirements.

Ecommerce sites built on Shopify

Shopify is our prefered ecommerce platform due its easy of use and excellent product and order management.

Some sites we've designed on Shopify:

Shopify makes it easy to open an online store by providing all the tools you'll need to manage payments and products. Octoberstone will design a unique bespoke website suited to your business. You can try Shopify for free for 30 days to see at first hand why it is so good for running an online retail business.

Other sites

Octoberstone have been responsible for marketing the Pope John Paul II Award in Ireland and the UK. The purpose being to actively encourage young people to get involved in the life of their parish and community.
