Anolog Records

Logo design for Anthony O'Dwyer of Anolog Records. This design subtly references both the name and function of the company by taking inspiration from the tape reel cogs of an analog recording device.
        Using this visual device as a starting point, I crafted the letter A into an icon for the company. The logo also echoes the tape reel cogs by rotating clockwise in motion graphics executions.

Bell Lane Coffee

Established in 2012, Bell Lane is an award-winning speciality coffee roaster based in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. Their team has over 30 years’ combined experience in the coffee industry.
        Working with Brand New Creative, we brought their new identity to life through social media teaser animations, followed by this final brand launch video.

The Snug Project

On March 15th 2020, with the full force of a global pandemic upon us, the pubs of Ireland were forced to close. Their absence has been felt by many, but none more so than those who rely on pubs for social interaction.
        I collaborated with Stills & Motion to create a case study video for The Snug Project; a calendar and limited edition print sale created to highlight this rising social issue that ran from November 2020 to January 2021. All proceeds from sales were in aid of ALONE, a national organisation that strives to enable older people to age at home, safely and securely, for as long as they wish.
        The project featured 12 images of empty Irish pubs snugs as captured by photographer Finn Richards.

Kerry

During my time as designer at RichardsDee, I was fortunate to be part of the team involved in rebranding the world’s leading Taste and Nutrition company.
        With a group revenue of €7.2 billion and a global workforce of over 22,000 people, Kerry needed to refresh and future proof its global brand strategy and identity to support its business intent and ambition.

Creatives Against Covid-19

I was part of the team and creative council who initiated Creatives Against Covid-19; an initiative that called on the creative industry to design and donate inspiring posters to raise funds for vulnerable women and children during the coronavirus crisis.
        The result? Over 1,000 posters, from over 30 countries, were designed and submitted within 7 days. All proceeds were donated equally between ISPCC Childline and Women’s Aid.
