  1. Uimhir a D贸! It’s inviting, whereas uimhir ahAon feels too in my face. I do like the font used in the small copy on uimhir ahAon too. Maybe combine? Also, have you considered capitalizing your name? Best! I love watching your enterprise grow!!!

  2. Uimhir a D贸
    This one is much easier to read. Not so busy.

    Went to Ireland in September. What a fantastic trip! It is so beautiful and everybody was friendly and helpful. I could even understand a little Irish when it was spoken. I got all nervous and confused and couldn’t speak but it is a start. I will keep at it a little at a time so when I come back I can reply properly!

    1. Nice one. Glad you enjoyed your trip. How did you get to hear Irish spoken? (I ask, since you usually have to seek it out).

    I vote for Uimhir a d贸. The color contrasts are prettier and proportions respected.

    Go maire t煤!

  4. Uimhir a Do. It’s clearer. The first one is too flashy and I can’t see the landscape behind the writing. But can’t you combine them? The “Learn Irish with Eoin” from the second one, and the small writing from the first one. Just a thought.

  5. Although, why not include the “Bitesize Irish Gaelic” logo on the cover? (the one on this site) It’s a clever logo, and is a little more iconic and eye-catching, and then coupled with the more mature, second design would be really good.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Steven. As it stand, I think the logo might have trouble vying for attention with the rest of the cover, what do you think?

  6. Uimhir a hAon: Feels very happy and popped out and eager, the brighter tones and colors along with the diagonal taking action feeling label makes for excitement.

    Uimhir a D贸: Feels quiet, calm. The darker tone and deeper colors feel peaceful.

    I am quite excited to learn Irish and I feel like Uimhir a hAon portrays my eager (though I do love the calmness of the second).

    馃檪 Besides, I’m a game developer and action and excitement is what I do.

      1. Sorry about that, was busy there for a bit. I am based in Southern California, not my favorite place in the world :/ but does make for a lot of jobs haha.

        1. Nice to hear about the jobs. I wouldn’t complain too much about Southern California, but I guess it’s all based on perspective 馃檪

  7. uimhir a do
    Why don’t you show Irish people speaking?
    It looks like an ad for some ‘yellow brick road’
    Even a ‘bitesize’ photo of two people talking would be an improvement
    It is the human element of the language development that concerns me…

  8. 鈥淯imhir a D贸鈥. The title is presented concisely and catches your eye at the very beginning. #1 seems to be more all over the page with different colors which is a bit more confusing. If I were to see these two covers side-by-side in a store, I would definitely look at #2 first. Also, #1 seems to shout more commercialism, where #2 is more subtle & conventional, which I personally prefer.

    1. Thanks, it’s not commercialism we want to convey, of course. The audio lessons are closer to what you might have with your cup of tae 馃檪
