My name is Diarmaid Collins and I am a Freelance Designer with nearly 20 years of professional experience. I have worked in a variety of positions on numerous and varied print/multimedia projects for a wide range of clients and companies; from the small and intimate through to large blue-chip corporates.


Throughout my career as a designer, I have had responsibility for many top brand accounts, such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, Royal Bank of Scotland, Davy Stockbrokers, Coca-Cola, Masterfoods, Bird's Eye, Kellogg's, GlaxoSmithKline, Unilever, Reckitt Benkiser, Eircom, Meteor and Vodafone.


As a result, I have had extensive experience in producing on-brief brand-guideline specific documents, corporate reports, in-house communications, promotional work, packaging artwork, retail and trade-show installations, point-of-sale display units/areas and promotional branding campaigns.


My skills range from concept work, typesetting & typography, logo creation, copy-writing, corporate identity, point of sale, marketing, art direction and publishing through to multimedia creation & front-end web design.


As a freelance creative designer, I have had the opportunity to work with many design houses and marketing companies that dealt with various high-end print projects, tender documents, annual reports, and presentation pieces.


Within these environments I have worked closely with design and sales teams, account handlers and brand managers producing quality creative solutions on budget and, most especially, on time.
