Hi, welcome to my site.
Iím a blogger and developer with a background in journalism and multimedia. I co-founded the award winning The Sociable.
For Skerries Community College I created designed and laid out the schools first Graduation Year Book and Graduation Certificate (Year Book).
This Year Book, published in 2003, was the first on its kind published by the school. I design and layed-out the book during my leaving cert year.
Pulse was the name of a television project that television production company Tyrone Productions was creating in 2001. The A4 flier was used as an advertising piece in the MIPCOM festival that year.
The idea behind the images was that it would resemble - in an pulse way - a heart or a drop of blood. I created the image in a 3D rendering program by placing a light source in a reflective sphere, the reflections off the spheres' interior created this droplet shape. To get the design I liked I altered the bump height of the reflective sphere, the orientation of the light source, camera and the colours. I then rendered the image to A4 dimensions. More images of this type can be found here
For the multicoloured text I selected each letter and applied a slight fade, taking the colours from the droplet.
The Molly Maguire's was a documentary by Tyrone Productions for TG4 and S4C about 6 Irish coalminers who where hanged in America. I was approached by Jimmy Duggan (a producer) of Tyrone Productions to create a brochure for the documentary. I was provided with an image of 4 men being hanged. I was asked to put in two others and to clean up the image as best I could.
In 2003, I was approached by Tyrone Productions to make a 3 page fold out brochure for use at the 2003 MIPCOM festival. The original concept for this design was by Michael Scott (writer/producer) of Tyrone Productions but the final layout and the image of the logo above the sea was mine.
Tyrone provided me with their logos, some of their previous brochures and the text to complete the project.
After the completion of the MIPCOM 2003 brochure Tyrone asked me to create a set of 17 images based on the design of the Tyrone logo in the MIPCOM brochure using the pastel colours of the Open House logo.
