Designer & Art Director-
One upon a time there was a freckly Irish girl named Sue. Her passion for great ideas and design has lead her to
work internationally in advertising, branding and design agencies.
Most recently she was found in Amsterdam at Edenspiekermann. Currently she has a brief stop in Dublin before her next step in a new art director role in New York.

Since graduating with first class honours from the Institute of Art & Design Dublin in 2009, she spent a little time in Design Factory and after receiving the Student Honors Award moved to the USA to begin a Masters in Advertising Design at the Savannah College of Art & Design. She went to Philadelphia for six weeks for a peek inside 160over90 during winter break, had that Texting While Driving project win an ADDY and come runnerup in the nationwide Wiley Student Design Challenge.
Graduating in June 2011 she accepted a role at Edenspiekermann and relocated to Amsterdam, the Netherlands. While here she has had the opportunity to soak up a wealth of knowledge from an amazing bunch of colleagues.
In October she was invited along with six other designers to take part in Command X (a design competition hosted by Michael Bierut, amongst judges Ellen Lupton, Chip Kidd, Karl Heiselman, DJ Stout) and came second place at AIGA's Pivot Conference.
With a passion for learning and challenges she also studied at night for a diploma in Dutch, kept in touch with the Savannah College of Art & Design as a SCAD Mentor. She also continues to maintain links to Ireland by acting in the Professional Panel [2012 – 2014] for the 100 Design Archive and as a judge for the IDI-Design Awards 2012.
