Hello! My name is Celine Curran, a Graphic Designer with over twenty years’ experience in the Magazine, Print and Design industries. I have a passion for original, creative design and can offer bespoke solutions for both print and online creatives. With my industry expertise and creativity I know what works and I love helping clients to bring their ideas to life! Feel free to browse my portfolio and contact me if I can be of assistance or send me details of what you require for a prompt quote.
I spent eight years of my career as Advertising Designer for IMAGE Publications, working on titles such as IMAGE, IMAGE Interiors and Himself Magazines. It was an exciting business to work in and I learnt so much - including meeting tight deadlines under extreme pressure! I left IMAGE to spend time raising my children, my other great passion! IMAGE provided me with a wealth of experience and I still have great memories and friends from those days.
The area where I feel my creativity come to life - I love a good spec that gets the ideas flowing. Flyers are a great way to advertise your business, showcasing your logo and vision as well providing information about your company or event. I still believe they can have a big impact, especially when used in micro-targetting campaigns on Social Media. I provide both print ready PDF’s for commercial printing and JPEG’s for web, social media, email and online use.
Maybe the ‘Holy Grail’ of Graphic Design?! - It’s so vital to get this right because your logo is your business ‘stamp of identity’. It will feature on all your business communications, website, social media, company stationery etc. so it is worth investing thought and time until its perfect. I usually provide 3/4 rough ideas as a starting point so I can get a feel of what my clients like. Then the logo is further developed and refined (under my notoriously perfectionist standards!) until the client is happy with the final design.
Another vital tool for most businesses - even the most monotonous information can be brought to life with colour, style and well placed imagery and infographics - from Product Catalogues/Business Brochures to End of Year Reports/Business Plans - The right design will make your business stand out from the crowd!
“I would highly recommend Celine Curran’s graphic design services to any business. We initially needed a professional look to our marketing material and had concerns about using the bigger firms and the costs associated. We also weren’t sure whether a graphic designer would be interested in a small business like ours.From the first leaflet, we have engaged Celine to improve our brochures, reports, marketing and our website. Celine adds the ‘magic’ to our ideas. It’s easy to see her vast experience in the print media design sector.
We are delighted with the way Celine has helped us to present our business professionally.”
Steve Halpin, Etac Solutions
“I have engaged Celine Curran on many graphic design projects and I cannot recommend her highly enough. The imagination and creativity with which she creates her designs from the (often boring!) briefs I send to her never cease to amaze me! Her attention to detail is second to none and she always delivers on time. I highly recommend Celine’s work.”
Stella Bass, Singer/The Voice Studio
“Celine’s understanding of the design process allows her to work seamlessly within a group environment while also taking responsibility for self-driven projects. I have always found her to be reliable, trustworthy and dependable.
I have been extremely impressed with the quality of the work Celine produces, as well as the ease with which she adapts to a change in environment or goals. I have no hesitation in recommending Celine for any project and firmly believe she would be a valuable asset and an inspiring influence to those around her.”
