Work Experience 2009 November – 2010 December Bradley Mc Gurk Unit 109, Q House, Furze Road, Sandyford, Dublin 18 Occupation: Graphic designer Duties & responsibilities Bradley McGurk is a branding and marketing agency that works with both small and large companies. They partner with each client to help their brand reach its full potential for customer loyalty and sales turnover. My role was as graphic designer working with the design team and also independently on numerous projects. Work range could span from designing a single leaflet to re-branding an entire business. Work was done across screen and print format. There was a lot of client contact both in person and over the phone and email. Due to the nature of the business some projects would span weeks while some are on going due to the repeat business from companies. As such a relationship needed to be established between you and the client. Also there was large amount of contact with printers and suppliers as we out sourced a lot of business. Multiple concurrent projects had to be worked on and completed within tight time frame. While working on these projects I also attended to incoming calls.

The head of the waste committee was keen to create a character (or characters) to aid in the “war on waste”. As time went on I worked with almost every department on site from HR to the quality. I developed their intranet site, published the news letter each month, designed new on site signage, and published a logistics handbook, to name but a few jobs.
