Aimed at global travellers and HNWI, Belmond have a global collection of 46 iconic hotels and 7 of the world’s most luxurious trains including the iconic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. In 2016 $10m was invested in the first luxury rail experience in Ireland – Belmond Grand Hibernian. We were invited to design the livery which would capture the imagination of the discerning global traveller.
Evoking a sense of historic Ireland and the golden age of rail we devised a Celtic Knot marque, which has been used throughout the train on carpets, ceilings, crockery and cutlery.
The inaugural journey of the Belmond Grand Hibernian was greeted with acclaim throughout Ireland.
