Firstly, I would like to thank you for visiting my website. My name is Gráinne and I am a Belfast girl born and bred but I now live with my awesome family in South Kilkenny. For me, Creativity and Art is in my blood. From I was no age, I loved anything that involved creating something new. One of my fondest childhood memories was making up games and songs with my brother and sisters, maybe showing my age lol, but in an age before computers, mobile phones and tablets, back then our imaginations were limitless!
So, fast forward a decade (ahem or 3! lol) and I am here, doing what I love, every day; being creative and sharing it with those around me, hoping to enhance their lives and experience. I suppose my technical background started for me in 2000, when I began as a Tech Support agent for AOL, back in the days of Dial-up modems! (again, showing my age lol). It was in 2001 that I picked up my first HTML book from the library and began to teach myself how to write code and was instantly hooked. Progessing to 2nd Level Tech Support and then advancing to Tech Support Team Leader, my thirst for knowledge in this area grew stronger.
Since lifting my very first HTML book, I have gone on to qualify with a First Class Honours in HDip in Business in Management and obtained a collection of diplomas and advanced diplomas in various areas such as, Web Design, Graphic Design, Adobe Applications and Social Media Marketing. I now also run an award winning Wedding Styling business and having created all the Marketing, Business Systems, Web and Graphic design from scratch, I decided to package up my wealth of experience, knowledge, skillset and most importantly passion for the design and business industries and offer them to other small to medium businesses and charitable organisations to help them advance forward in their own goals.
I would love the opportunity to help you reach your full potential, so if you like what you see and want to know more about how I can help you, drop me a line and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

"A designer knows he has achieved perfection; not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."
A well designed and up-to-date website is a vital component of a small to medium enterprise's (SME) marketing strategy. Responsive web design is becoming increasing important to incorporate or update your web design as more and more consumers are visiting through different platforms such as a mobile phone or a tablet.
I wish to offer several solutions to established and emerging SME's to ensure you stay relevant and competitive in your industry.
What I really love about Graphic Design is the possibilities are endless. Having the ability to share information in a visually creative and effective way is tremendously beneficial to your business.
When you are creating or developing your business, the thing I feel sets you apart, is ensuring your brand is consistent across all formats and functions, from your logo, colour, website, business cards, letterheads, brochures, social media presence; the list is endless. No matter what your design needs, I can help you achieve the best possible outcome for your brand.
My passion for business comes from my love for creativity. They both go hand in hand, it is taking a concept or an idea, developing it and bringing it to fruition. In addition to academic qualifications in business, I have a wealth of experience with business start-ups and understand the fundamentals required for turning an idea into a fully fledge business.
I provide you with advice, support and solutions to establish efficient processes across your SME.
“To design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit: it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to modify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade, and perhaps even to amuse. To design is to transform prose into poetry.”
My combined passion for creativity and function can help you bring your small to medium business to the next level. I would love to help you fulfil any of your projects; from designing a bespoke logo, your business cards or your website. I can also offer business support and advice, just let me know what you need.
If you have any questions, comments or queries, I would love to hear from you.
