Sør is a multidisciplinary creative practice working internationally in branding, print, digital & advertising.
Sør is the design practice of Karl Smyth, a designer, art director and illustrator from Ireland. Based roving between Ireland and Portugal, and servicing clients around the globe, we don't have a full-time staff but instead partner and collaborate with some of the best folk in the industry to connect, innovate and make things better..
As well as owning a large collection of crayons, Karl is an admirer of Dutch graphic design, and a lover of Danish pastries, Ethiopian coffee and the New York Times crossword. With two decades of experience as an award-winning designer, and art & creative director, he’s connected to some of the best people in the industry. For every project, Karl pulls together the right people for the job. Some jobs can be done by Karl alone, while others call for an army of variously tenured folks, resulting in a project team handpicked and committed to understanding what you need and meeting your design, development and branding challenges.
Beautiful design grounded by research, concept, experimentation, good typography, user-friendliness and attention to detail can help people. Good choices make work effortless, make meaning clear, and make the mundane enthralling. Design is about solving problems and creating effective communication and interaction with an audience. We take pride in our ability to move between media and a range of disciplines.
