A little about me

I believe in colourful, innovative and accessible design.

If you were to define me by a type of creative, it would be 'The Thinker'. I am thoughtful, reflective and I am driven by an intellectual curiosity. I view the world as an endless opportunity for learning, discovery and understanding the how, why and what if. I am capable of seeing the bigger picture, exploring many ways to solve a problem and like decisions to be based on insight or data. Designing experiences is a new adventure for me and working on Webex Teams has inspired me to create experiences with meaning. I am a Visual Designer but it's so much more than just about making things 'pretty'. As part of my work on Webex Teams, I am also an illustrator for all products under the Webex Brand. I get to work with designers across a variety of teams and timezones who all share the same passion for bringing meaning, purpose and delight.

Skillset

I love everything that has to do with product UI & visual design, as well as branding, typography, and illustration.

I have been working with the Galway UX team at Cisco for a year now. I also work and collaborate with a variety of other teams across the world within Cisco. I have learned so much in this time and it has opened my eyes to what Visual Design really means. Following a design system was also new to me when I joined this wonderful adventure and while I don't have a direct hand in developing the Webex Design System, Momentum, as a designer and every other designer who works with the system, we can provide a much greater insight, help direct the system visually to align and evolve with our vision, tone and voice. It is quite the collaborative effort! In college I was able to dabble in a variety of areas involved in the design industry, so this has given me a great understanding in several technical and practical skills. I am someone who values art and other creative ventures - love to learn, explore, express and create for myself, whatever that might be.

Experience

My career is still young but every step has been wonderfully different.

I have had the privilege to work in some unique places since finishing a Bachelor of Arts, Honours degree in Limerick School of Art & Design. I have found my way from unique freelance jobs to small design studios/agencies where I was able to experience a variety of work such as Branding, Editorial Design, Illustration, Web Design & Development, Motion Design and even a little in Post Production for Video.
