FREELANCE PROJECTS 

A selection of projects that I was lead designer on
2019/2020

COCOONING

Publication
210mm x 297mm
2020


  

Cocooning was a project made with Castleknock Community Centre and Fingal County Council, for those cocooning in the Dublin 15 area during the Corona virus pandemic. We created an activity book containing puzzles, recipes and poems, that was distributed to those who were vulnerable in the area.

 


 




MY LIFE THROUGH A LENS

Publication
210mm x 297mm
2020



    
              

My Life through a lens is a Scrapbook I created with Fingal County Council and Age Friendly Fingal. The workbook invites older people to document their lives through photographs, to be recorded in the National Archives and then returned to the books owner.





  



CASTLEKNOCK COMMUNITY CENTRE

Branding
2020
     



  

Castleknock Community Centre was forced to close during the pandemic, and upon re-opening needed new signage that would be clear and would advertise not only that they were open again but also the new things they had to offer. This project was voluntary and included above counter signage, stickers for cups and bags, an outdoor menu and window signage that had to be hand-painted. This was an exciting project that was completed in just two weeks from conception to execution.
