Art & Design Professional Portfolio

Over the course of my career as a graphic designer, I have worked with leaders in the field of education and international not for profit organisations. My creative practice has enabled me to bridge the gap between art and design, incorporating new technologies into my practice.

 

ReBranding of Trinity Sport (2016-2017)

As graphic designer in Trinity College Dublin I was tasked with rebranding the Department of Sport. This rebranding included developing a new visual identity, working with Kukri in the design of a sport kit and the creation of a mascot for TCD.

Visual narrative storybook created to tell the story of Malala Yousafzai. Exhibited in the Wilson Gallery, Cheltenham. Commended by University of Gloucestershire.

I was approached by Goal Global and asked to participate in their fundraising initiative ‘What on Earth’. My creative submission titled ‘A Global Conversation’, features the quotes from many influential change makers in the form of calligraphy carved into the painted background.
