The Story of PÓG
PÓG is the Irish word for kiss.
And that, quite simply, is what PÓG is: an Irish Kiss. Hailed as the new alternative to the Claddagh ring, PÓG asks us to wear love, to send love, to show love.
The idea for PÓG came to Melissa after returning to Ireland. Having spent fifteen years living and working as a designer in Paris, she felt a little lost. Feeling disconnected from her roots and her former world, she was stuck in-between lives. It was a solitary time. Her son who was three years old and his little kiss was always reassuring at the end of the day.
The Symbol for PÓG is an X (kiss), a familiar letter that has become an affectionate symbol, be it digital or written. The idea is to merge the sentiment of the word 'kiss' in Irish (PÓG) and the 'little X' together.
Melissa loved the idea of sending Irish Kisses to people all over the world and felt there was a need for something new in Ireland to represent the progressive cultural context of today.
