Campaign Tracking your Job Search

Using Google Analytics and UTM URLs to track link clicks from your job applications. Most of us are familiar with the often demotivating process of looking for work. You spend hours, days, and weeks creating CVs and cover letters for jobs that sound perfect for you. You send them off and……nothing.  It gets soul crushing pretty quickly, and you begin to question every step of your application. But with no information back it can be Read more…

Where is your podcast being seen?

As of late 2019, there were more than 800,000 active podcasts on Apple Podcasts. Now that it has moved into the mainstream after years on the fringes, everyone is diving into podcasting.

Exploring Ireland

I worked on the design of a logo for the Exploring Ireland blog early in 2020. I won’t take too much credit for the design of this, as the concept for the logo and some of the work had already been created by Niamh, the owner of the blog, before I got involved. My job was to take a rough concept, polish it up, add some colour, and get it ready for use. Here is Read more…

Tales & Trails

Tales & Trails is a content series created by Lovin.IE in association with Discover Ireland. The series showcased some of Ireland’s best walking trails through articles, videos and an immersive podcast series. My role in this project was to design the Tales & Trails hub which would house all of this content.

Hiiker Main Image

Hiiker

Hiiker is an app which allows people to plan out multi-day hiking routes. It has the largest collection of multi-day trails in the world, across 31 countries. I was approached to design a logo for Hiiker earlier in 2019, before the app was launched. At the time, there had been some design work carried out, but the brand needed updating before launch. Below is the logo I designed which Hiiker are using really nicely within Read more…

Kaleidoscope Particles

I spent a couple of hours playing around with the CC Kaleida, CC Ball Action, Scatter, and camera features on After Effects. With some music added this was the end result. It’s something that has a lot of capability for tweaks, as slight changes to any positioning will result in a very different visual.
