I am an Industrial designer based in Ireland and currently work for ID consultancy Design Partners
. This position involves design work for international clients including Logitech, HP and Palm.
My design aim is to balance creative innovation, attention to detail and clarity. This includes a keen interest in all disciplines of design ranging across 2D and 3D genres.
When working I find many influences in Scandinavian, Japanese, furniture and modernist design. Alvar Aalto
, Shigeru Ban
, Naoto Fukusawa
, the late Maarten Van Severen
& the Bouroullec brothers
to name but a few.
Previous to my involevement in ID I generated over 6 years experience working in the 2D design industry both for agencies and as a freelance designer. This has resulted in a portfolio of internet
Solidworks, Alias StudioTools, Hypershot Bunkspeed, 3D Studio Max, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Dreamweaver, Hand Rendering, Sketching, CSS & HTML Code.
Adobe InDesign, QuarkXpress, Flash.
When I'm not spending 13 hours a day in the studio I can be found kitesurfing, MTB'ing, snowboarding, kiting, wakeboarding, sailing, surfing and participating in many other mainly water based activities.
