WHAT
I DO

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

I am a newly graduated Visual Communications student from IADT in Dublin (BA Hons), with a love of the initial research stage of projects. I am currently an intern at WorkGroup design studio in Dublin and am available for freelance work too.
I enjoy making mind maps, lists or scribbling down notes to help make space for new ideas
in my head.

I have always loved books and book design has been a big focus in my study. However I do have an interest in user research and testing so screen based projects have suited me in my college life, too. I tend to forget an idea unless it’s written down immediately so I’m often making notes to free up brain space. I have placed a big focus on process in my projects because while
I understand it is important to show finished pieces, I think it is equally important to show the journey of a project, mapping out the design decisions. I hope to use my website as a window into my thought process, showing my love of lists and my passion for process driven design.

I am passionate about typography and am keen to focus more on experimental play with type in the future. I have always been interested in typographic rules and how they can be used to create dynamic and interesting design solutions. I love English so enjoy generating relevant content and editing, too. My interest in language has helped me to create meaningful design solutions in my college work and understand hierarchy of content and information architecture. My passion for words and the forms of letters has driven each project I have undertaken. If you are interested in working with me or would like to get in touch please do.

WHAT
I WANT

MY IDEAL JOB

To work with words, content and information.
To create work that communicates clearly and effectively. To help people achieve success through practical, appropriate design. To be part of a design team. To better my design skills through hands-on projects. To be challenged to think outside the box. To work with others who are passionate about words and language.
