I’m going freelance

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Every so often, just to keep yourself on your toes, you have to take a leap into the unknown.

After three fantastic years as a UX Designer at Nascom, I’ve decided to leave and embark on a new adventure into the big bad world of freelancing.

Since I was a kid, sketching the rabbits from Watership Down in front of the TV, I’ve always wanted to be an illustrator. Now, just like Fiver, Hazel and the others, I’m setting out on my own journey into uncharted territory.

After taking on a few illustration projects and opening my print store recently, I’ve seen that there just might be room for a little Irishman out there in the illustration world.

You can see my work at my portfolio site: lefft.com and I’m interested in all sorts of design work, not just illustration, so if you’ve got an iOS app, website, application, print project or something completely different then don’t hesitate to email me.

Having too much choice is one of the main obstacles for 21st century designers. With virtually unlimited tools and possibilities at our fingertips in the digital age, our creativity can become clouded very easily. Being inundated with thousands of photoshop brushes or fonts can push the very concept of a design from the forefront of your mind.
