About me

I am an Irish designer based in London where I have recently completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Design for Visual Communications at London College of Commuincation (LCC). I am particularly interested in print, typographic and editorial design and with a background in textile design, I am also fascinated by colour, texture and pattern.
