I have been working as a qualified graphic designer since 2004. I am currently the Creative Director of Waterford Based Digital & Brand Strategists Márla Communications. Illustration is always at the core of my development process. If I can use It effectively within a project then I do. Working in digital and traditional methods, I consider my illustration style to be quite loose but also detailed.
Over the last number of years I have added numerous facets to my digital design armoury. Some of which include web design, animation and motion graphic development.
