My Bio
Hi, my name is Paul...

I’m a graphic designer and illustrator from Dublin, Ireland. I completed my degree in Visual Communication at DIT in June 2010 achieving first class honours and also being awarded ‘Best Visual Communication Student’. In April 2010 I was awarded a Merit from the International Society of Typographic Designers for my environmental awareness piece, ‘Consider This’. My work has been featured in quite a number of publications including Computer Arts magazine, PAGE magazine, IDN magazine, Deviant Art and Typography Served. My work was awarded winner of the 'New Media' category in the 2010 IDI Graduate Awards.

Prior to starting my degree, I worked from 2003-2006 as full-time in-house graphic and web designer at music company Coca-Cola Blastbeat. My roles included designing promotional material for events, company branding and identity, web design and also some PHP programming. In 2010 I completed an internship with Dynamo design agency in Dublin. I have worked in (and continue to work freelance for) Dublin digital design agency 'The Creative District' as a digital designer. My roles there included branding, web design, motion design and illustration on major projects.

In addition to my in-house and studio work, I have also been working freelance since 2005. I have worked for a wide range of clients accross various industries.

Hello all!

Hello all!

Hi there, It's been WAY to long since I posted anything here... basically been crazy busy with my final year in college/exhibition, etc. On top of that, I've been doing a lot of freelance work and preparing for an internship! Anyway, I'm in the process of photographing and uploading all my new work, most of which I should have up over the week or two. Check it out in my gallery or over in the all new www.paultheillustrator.com! Chat soon! P

Final year in college

Final year in college

Good evening, Just started my final year in Visual Communications course and I am already seriously swamped with work! Working on a new ISTD project at the moment (the brief is simply entitled 'One Hundred'). The projects seem really open this year, which is pretty cool. Also have a children's book in the pipeline, just in the process of brainstorming a story at the moment. Uploaded a cover I finished for a children's book cover competition so check it out if you get the chance, your feedback is really appreciated! Paul
