Hello,

I’m Des, a designer from Cork City, Ireland, now living in New York. Last October, I graduated with a BA Honors in Visual Communication from Crawford College of Art & Design. While in college I ran a design start-up for the duration of my studies. Once I graduated, I then became part of the amazing team at Chapter Design where I spent my days focused on brand and environmental design. Here I gained invaluable experience and it only drove my obsession passion for branding through the roof! If you’re interested in getting to know more about my background, I’ve dropped a few details below and please don’t hesitate to get in contact.
