Notes To Cork is a creative design and advertising studio headed by Al Dalton. It was born out of Poster Displays Ltd, Al’s 30 year old outdoor advertising family business. The decision to rebrand and restructure came about during the height of the pandemic in an attempt to keep the business afloat. With his background in the Arts, Al pivoted the family business and utilised his creative background to reimagine the possibilities of the outdoor advertising space and has used his experience to help brands tell their story in ways that truly connect with their customers.

Your vision might be brilliant, but no one will know unless it’s represented in your brand.

It’s a struggle to get your messaging out there when you don’t have the right branding or content. We get your message onto the streets of Cork and into online communities, making your ideas come to life in a way that gets your audience talking about your brand.

Al from Notes to Cork helped me with the rebranding of my small food business. Best decision I’ve ever made. He helped create a very strong brand presence and as a result I have seen my business grow leaps and bounds. I would highly recommend.

Al has been absolutely brilliant. We worked with Notes to Cork on our recent Steps of Hope Cork project, and from the start Al has been very helpful, professional and enthusiastic. It was our first time creating a physical art exhibition involving billboards and Al explained the process in a clear manner that made us feel very at ease with the whole process. Al’s dedication to his craft was clear, but above that also his commitment to raising social awareness through his Public Inspiration Panels project. We are very happy with our partnership with Notes to Cork and would be delighted to recommend Al and Notes to Cork.

When I was thinking of opening my own business I wanted to create something very special and Notes To Cork was my gut feeling when it came to creating the branding for W+T. Al and his team are super passionate about the work they deliver. I wanted to get the business up and running soon but I had to trust the process and I am so glad I did. Al has so much experience and made the entire journey seamless and a lot of fun! If you’re thinking of starting your own business, Notes To Cork is where I would begin. Thank you NTC for your endless ideas & professionalism.

Having my posters up on the walls of Cork is the best and most direct way of reaching the people of Cork, and of being a part of the life of the City. I’ve been using Notes To Cork for the past 22 years to advertise my annual December gig at the Everyman Palace and it has worked every time.

We met Al very early in our journey to start a business and from the very first meeting we could tell that he knew exactly where our business could grow and understood exactly where we envisioned ourselves. He has a genuine passion to help businesses and creatives grow. We have now finished our first contract with Al but it’s definitely not our last, we are about to start our next journey with him. We now have our brand booklet and feel so much more confident in what we are doing when communicating with suppliers and collaborators. It’s not just a logo, it’s the basis of a business strategy and design. He always asks the tough questions and really helped us see the bigger picture for us and our business.

I couldn’t recommend Notes To Cork enough, not just for the great Brand Strategy but your warm openness and ability to transfer an idea in my head into our Brand Identity. Never once did I feel like you were rushing me to make a sale. Even still in the background your words of wisdom and support are truly appreciated.

I worked with Al and Notes to Cork in April 2021 to deliver a series of artworks on his ‘Public Inspiration Panels’ around Cork and since then we have worked on a number of other small projects as well. Notes to Cork is an incredible business and is fast becoming a cornerstone of the Cork artistic community, I think people really recognise the Notes to Cork billboards as a unique brand. Al is always a pleasure to work with and he brings a lot of positive energy and creativity to any project. I’ve loved keeping up to date with all the other projects Notes to Cork work on because there is always something fun and clever going on!
