Four/Four No.1 created with Shauna Buckley.



Site for the typographic conference Face Forward. Designed and built by myself and Seán Mongey.



Hidden Agenda is an events company from Dublin that pride themselves on being forward-thinking and experimental in their approach to the experiences they create. They approached us with the aim of creating a site that would reflect this sentiment.

By concentrating on their existing identity, in particular their mark containing four black bars, myself and Shauna Buckley created a repeating monochrome system for the dissemination of their information that reflected their avant-garde approach.



Grafik asked myself and Ben to write an article. We chose to discuss simultaneous, collaborative, creative software and the potential for excellence that lies therein. They ran with the title Parallel Practice which is only partially more poetic than our original title; Multiplayer Photoshop.



Page designed and built by Ben West and myself to announce a call for papers for the Face Forward typographic conference.



A first person exploration experience—entitled Pink—that marks my first foray into working with Unity.



Identity and site designed by myself and Oscar Torrans and built by myself and Ben West, District is an online magazine that prides itself on covering the best aspects of Dublin city while keeping its readers up to date on upcoming events.

Referencing the visual language of cartography and navigation throughout the site and the logotype, we created an identity that reflected their core interest, the city itself. “It’s compass cause district.”



Posters for a series of shows organised by the The Building Society in the sadly now closed Twisted Pepper.



Andrew Nuding is an outstanding young photographer with an array of clients ranging from Dazed & Confused to American Apparel. Together we created a site for his ever expanding portfolio of work.

Referencing the physical and metaphorical nature of photography at every turn, the site flicks monochrome with images and typography exposing themselves and fading back. The site’s entire colour scheme changes depending on the time of day and something special happens in the early hours of the morning.



Poster for Tensnake for the good folks at The Building Society by myself and Shauna Buckley. There’s ten snakes.



Foundation is The Building Society’s ongoing series of excellent parties and club nights. Myself and Oscar were asked to create an identity for Foundation that would be expressive and flexible and also retain a certain sense of the underground roots of the early days of Detroit techno, particularly the labels associated with the The Belleville Three; KMS Records, Transmat and Metroplex.

Taking architectural cues from the name and juxtaposing them with these references allowed us to create a visual tone that we continue to explore with every iteration. The mark is simply a foundation for every poster, always supporting whatever structure sits above it.
