I am a freelance graphic designer and illustrator who works with ambitious, energetic companies on their brand identity and collateral, making sure their brand is visually vibrant, exciting and clear.
My passions span across brand identity design, illustration, typography, and lettering. I love to challenge myself and think outside the box, I'm always looking to learn new design and craft skills. I continue to love what I do and aspire to keep learning and enhancing my skills.
My Story So Far:
I graduated from the Limerick School of Art and Design in Ireland in 2012, achieving a BA honors degree in Visual Communications. Soon after, I was employed as an in-house graphic designer at The Burren Identity Ltd in Limerick. In early 2013, I made the move to New York with the ambition to forward my career and enrich my design skills. I was awarded with an 'Individuals of Extraordinary Ability' Visa and spent two and a half years working at Marena Studios in Manhattan. In 2016, I returned to the West of Ireland to pursue my dream of running my own freelance business full-time.
