What is ‘nice shit, not shit that looks nice’? I believe great design is not just something that looks nice, great design is built upon a brave concept or story that has the potential to shape culture for the better.
I'm a brand designer with over ten years of unique experience as a brand designer, graphic designer and art director. I have a strong passion for growing brand identities through conceptual ideas and strategic thinking with a belief that a strong brand can change the world. I communicate those ideas through typography, art direction, colour, composition, images and motion to create great designs.
My first design experience came working in my father's signage business at sixteen. In 2017 I graduated with a degree in Graphic Design & Illustration from Ulster University. Later that summer I moved to Dublin to pursue a career in Art Direction at Core (formerly Radical). In 2018 I moved back to Belfast, initially as a freelance graphic designer and later as a full time graphic designer at MXB. Following a short period of travelling in 2024 I am currently freelancing again as a brand designer.
Throughout my career I have always focused on developing and learning new skills. I have designed and art directed for a range of media including brand, social, print, signage, wayfinding, digital, experiential, OOH, POS and packaging.
In my spare time I obsess over football, create ideas for projects no one asked me to do and sample the finest hospitality Ireland has to offer while being curious about new trends, the world and culture.
