Our Brand Identity

Eneclann [en’eklaN]
The honour price ascribed to an individual as a measure of his/her status, recorded in the early Irish Law tracts. The honour price had to be paid for any major offence committed against an individual, e.g. murder, satire, serious injury, refusal of hospitality, theft, violation of protection etc. Corpus Juris Hiberniae 347.27-348.11.
[from Fergus Kelly, A Guide to Early Irish Law (Dublin, 1988)]

Our Logo

1998 – 2011

Original Eneclan Logo

Our original logo was developed in 1998 and incorporated the Trinity Knot symbol, as a reference to Eneclann’s ties with Trinity College, and because it is associated with Ireland. The three elements of the Trinity Knot, presented in three different shades of brown, reflected Eneclann’s three core teams (Historical and Genealogical Research, Archives and Records Management & Digitisation and Digital Publications). The Celtic typeface emphasised Eneclann’s Irish origins and client base.

Following a review of our branding in 2011, we decided that the original identity needed to be developed further, in line with the Eneclann’s own evolution. In 2011 we updated Eneclann’s brand identity, including the logo, website, newsletters and other marketing materials.


Eneclann Logo

The current logo presents a new way of using the Trinity Knot. It is contained within a diamond, which signifies a precious item of high quality – historical records are valuable and need to be protected.

The colours used within the diamond signify the different teams within Eneclann. They overlap and form other colours within the shape, symbolising the interactive nature of our teams and their ability to produce new areas of expansion and development.The typeface is a modern interpretation of traditional Irish uncial faces.
