About Fergal

I am a multi-disciplinary visual artist and designer. Through Illustration, Photography, Design for Print and Screen, I have created unique solutions to art and design problems. Having worked on projects based on different themes, I have developed a style to work for both humorous and serious design applications. Several of my projects have focused on cultural themes and issues.  I have a keen interest in socially conscious design. I am a recent graduate from BA Design (Visual Communications), Dublin School of Creative Arts, DIT Grangegorman, Dublin, Ireland.
