This project involved creating a poster design which fought against The Death Penalty, and then the designing of an app for the iPad. The concept behind this poster was to 'cut out' the Death Penalty. The target audience for this was the student body and this informed the choice of photography. The blend of typography with photography allows the aesthetic qualities of this piece to come through.
Trinity College Dublin had an opening of a new building during the month of September 2016. For this opening they needed a new brochure designed giving people information about the work the science department had done to date and the events they held. A mix of neatly placed info plus eye catching imagery makes for an easy to read yet visually pleasing brochure and the client was very happy with the final product
During my time working in Dublin I attained a popular Dublin Business as a client of mine, Kennedys Bar & Restaurant. Initially they asked for their logo to be recreated. From there they got menus, business cards, signage, vouchers and much more. Kennedys came back on a regular basis and often with many jobs at one time as they were always updating their menus and events. Working under pressure was a common thing with Kennedys as they are one of Dublins popular pubs.
Seen here is a mix of Wedding Stationery. Each client came to me with very particular requests. Some came with drawing that they wanted incorporated into their invitation, some wanted caricatures and others with colour schemes. Each of these were created from scratch using illustrator and photoshop.
The Drawing Awards is an annual competition held in Limerick School of Art & Design for the student body. Its aim is to encourage students to create a self initiated piece with the hope of having it displayed in the awards show. This project involved creating a new identity for the awards and to also create a campaign in the lead up to the submissions and event. The concept of tattoos came about through discussion of the word 'committment'. We want students to committ to their own personal work and to enter it into the awards. As part of a team, a selection of temporary tattoos were created with quirky sentences that related to the different disciplines within the college such as fashion, painting and graphics. Each tattoo comes with a submission card to enter a piece of work to the event. The aim was to create hype throughout the college through use of the quirky temporary tattoo which the students would then wear, hence advertising the event
As part of a team for a YCN brief, I helped to produce an advertising campaign centred around a new product for Boost. We created a range of four FUNNER functional waters for Boost that each have different flavours and benefits. Our approach brings a new exciting perspective to these benefits. The print aspect consists of our packaging design, printed adverts and our interactive in-store displays. We created colourful, eye-catching bottles with a TWIST, literally! Our TWIST identity has its own personality while also complimenting the Boost logo.
This project is an information supplement for The Guardian Newspaper about The World Cup 2014 and statistics surrounding The World Cup since it began. These statistics are in relation to the economic states of countries as well as statistics from the matches themselves. Colour plays an important role in this project as seen throughout the supplement alongside clear information design to allow easy reading
This project visualizes a short story through the use of video. The aim of this brief was to create a different form of reading. The story this video piece is based on is called 'Deer at Rest' by Thisbe Nissen. As this is a flash fiction the piece reflects this through use of flashbacks and the pace quickly changes between fast and slow. The story is about a mother who has left her daughter behind at an eating disorders clinic and compares her situation to that of two deer, a mother and child, both lying lifeless on the side of the road. An eery and sorrowful tone is depicted throughout with typographic elements coming into play to reinforce the seriousness of the situation at hand. https://vimeo.com/126848087
