About

Hi, I’m Colm!

I’m a graphic design student, artist and illustrator based in Wexford, Ireland.

I’m in my final year at Waterford IT, where I’m studying a BA(Hons) Degree in Design (Visual Communications). Since starting the course I’ve received mostly first class honours in both sit down exams and continuous assessed projects, and at the end of my third year received the prestigious award of WIT/AIB School of Humanities Student of the Year 2013. By the end of the four years I hope to get into branding and apparel graphics but I also enjoy the hand drawn aspect of illustration. Up until now I have been both, chosen to represent WIT and also shortlisted in each of the nationwide competitions that our college year has entered, competing against each of the colleges in Ireland that carry the Design (Visual Communications) course.

I’m a mature student, 31, with a great work ethic and was previously employed as an architectural technician, handling jobs and clients from idea stage to final completion.
I’ve been trained in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, Premiere, After Effects, QuarkXPress, AutoCAD, and Google Sketch-up to name but a few.

If you like what you see or know someone that might, get in contact!
