Benito's 20th

In November 2023, I designed an e-invite for Dalkey-based restaurant Benito's 20th anniversary party, using their brand colours/fonts. The background pattern consists of 20 lettermarks to represent the 20 years that Benito’s has been in business. 

Lilliput Players

In September/October 2022, I designed the logo for a new Irish amateur drama group called the Lilliput Players. The logo is inspired by the coastal town of Dún Laoghaire, where the group is based, and the fictional island of Lilliput from the novel Gulliver's Travels, which is inhabited by tiny people.


In the early stages of a 2020 college project that aimed to raise public awareness of corporate “pinkwashing” or “rainbow-washing” (scroll down for a glimpse of that project), I wrote a satirical version of the Muppets' song “Rainbow Connection”. In 2022, I made a lyric video for it as a response to the fallout from Disney's initial reluctance to condemn the introduction of Florida's “Don't Say Gay” bill.

Dalkey Players

In early 2022, the Irish amateur theatre group Dalkey Players asked me to redesign their logo and website. The new logo is inspired by Dalkey Castle—the primary venue for Dalkey Players' productions since the group's founding in 1976—and is intended to visually evoke Dalkey Players' history in a modern, minimalist way. The new website's design and development is ongoing, so watch this space!

Y.E.S. 2021

In 2021, I volunteered as a graphic designer for Aunua, an Irish nonprofit that is dedicated to improving the education and emotional wellbeing of young people globally. In September, Aunua hosted a virtual “Youth Education Summit” with over 100 inspirational speakers of all ages and nationalities. As part of Aunua’s design team, I created static/motion graphics that promoted the summit on social media.


In 2020, I created a series of motion graphics as part of a college project that aimed to raise public awareness of corporate “pinkwashing” or “rainbow-washing”, i.e., the promotion of LGBTQ+ rights by a corporation for financial profit. Pinkwashing allows corporations to improve their public image and divert attention away from anything that might tarnish it, such as (ironically) their anti-LGBTQ+ policies.
