About me

My name is Daragh and I design things. Originally from Dublin, Ireland, I'm currently studying my final year of Design and Interaction at Central Saint Martins in Kings Cross, London. I won a D&AD pencil this year for a brief with Monotype, have been featured in the 2017 D&AD annual and been shortlisted for the Communication Arts Typography award in California. Creative Review also very kindly featured my work in September as a 'One To Watch'. My aim is to provoke intrigue through design, to convey messages and ask questions in new ways and to engage an audience through thoughtful, creative presentation of information. My work is digitally focused (web, UI/UX, creative coding, VR/AR) but I dabble in print and type design. The core focus of my self-directed work sits at the fringes of design and science, where I believe truly interesting things can be made by coming up with visual analogies for complex scientific principles. By doing this, we enrich the visual culture of science and encourage interest and understanding. Say hello on Instagram at @D_r_ghJ_nd_rs_n
