About me

Hello! I'm Aisling. I've just finished up three years working at Missoma London as Senior Graphic Designer and am now a full-time freelancer. I'm currently based in Dublin but will be working remotely all over Europe in the coming year. My experience at Missoma and at Tatty Devine prior to this, has provided me with a well-rounded skill set as a designer — ranging from digital and print, branding, and packaging to photography and art direction — all within fast-paced e-comm environments. I hope you enjoy looking through my work, feel free to drop me an email if you wish to chat. Thank you x
