About

I'm a 26 year old Irish graphic designer. The work I am most driven to make lies at the convergence of identity, experiences, technology and information. 

In a productive career to date, I have designed for, and in, diverse contexts and environments. I believe that design should add tangible value where it is applied, and that designers themselves have a responsibility to seek the most opportune, inventive ways for design to answer the requirements of a given brief.

In my experience, this has included helping brands to communicate in innovative ways, for cities and cultural institutions to deliver better experiences and for international creative agencies to diversify and move with the times. A lot of my personal work has also been invaluable in finding my voice and graphic style, particularly in the area of typographic design. I have sought to lead a diverse practice throughout my early career, fuelled by my innate intrigue in people; their desires, behaviours and how they can be accommodated and manipulated to achieve the specific goals of a design brief.
