Resume

 

Education

Graduated with a First Class Honors BA(Hons) in Visual Communication at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, Ireland (2016).

I attained 9 distinctions while studying Art, Design and Mixed Media (Portfolio Preparation Course at Ballyfermot College of Further Education (BCFE).

 

Experience

Currently working as a junior designer at Studio aad (April 2017–Present). Working as part of a team on a wide range of projects and outputs. I mostly work on print, motion and branding projects but I have had the chance to strengthen skills such as writing and illustration. Regardless of the medium being used, purposeful decision making and critical reflection lie at the heart of everything I design at Studio aad.

I worked as a junior graphic designer at Indigo & Cloth (July 2016–April 2017). This job involved developing graphic and branding work across a broad range of media. This mostly included designing assets for print and web.

I completed a one month internship at SandS Studio, London (Summer 2014). This internship mostly involved creating early stage visuals and concepts within a design team.

I co-founded the handmade clothing company and screen print studio Alright Apparel (June 2012). This involves arranging the production, design, branding, screen printing, photography, distribution and promotion of our products.

I occasionally work as a freelance graphic designer in my spare time. I designed identity systems, logos, album covers, packaging, posters and have had illustrations featured in Dublin based magazines TN2, Garter and Bare Magazine.

 

Interests

I am well versed in digital and analog photography. I shoot various styles of photography from product to fashion.

I skateboard in my spare time. I took part in a MA project at NCAD where we built a skatepark using concrete over a period of two weeks (December 2014).

I regularly rock climb and boulder. I found that the ability to problem solve, creativity, and the willingness to accept unfamiliar challenges are all important traits that one needs to progress in the sport.
