Graphic Designer Donegal

My Story

The first spark…

As a child, I was praised for ‘being good with colours’. At the time, I’d never heard of the of the term ‘graphic designer’. It was not until my second level education that I began to consider a ‘creative’ career. My art teacher encouraged me and on her recommendation, I applied for a HND in Visual Communications.

After graduating, a three month internship followed and then I landed my first graphic design job with a different design agency and worked there for thirteen years.

Two daughters later plus a short career break, it was time for change and I decided to try my hand at freelancing. My desk was not the usual kitchen table but a makeshift workspace under the stairs!

I’ve since formed my own company, JKS Design in 2010, and happily work from my dedicated home office in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal.

In my spare time you’ll find me walking with my husband, children and our two dogs along one of the many beaches on the stunning Donegal coastline or having a city break in my birthplace of Belfast.

FINALLY!!! After years of procrastinating! I’ve done it! My new website is LIVE! 🚀 Woohoo! 🎉
(link in bio)

If any of you would like to share this post, I’d be so grateful… after years of waiting for this moment I want EVERYONE to know about it!!!

Until now, my online presence was solely on social media and business directories. I’ve been lucky enough to be kept busy during my last 10+ years in business (mainly through referrals) so finding the time among the client work was difficult… I always put my own need for a website at the bottom of my ever expanding to-do list. Thanks to a few years of prompting from Michael MacGinty (MEANit) @michaelmacginty, I finally registered my domain name in December 2018. But 2019 turned out to be another busy year work wise and I never did get around to sorting my website.

Things slowed a bit in 2020 and I worked late and weekends to finally get it sorted. I want to say a huge thank you to my Web Developers MEANit for their expertise, advice and patience. I couldn’t have done it without them! Also thanks to @donegalleo for their assistance and funding through the Trading Online Voucher Scheme and the Business Continuity Scheme. I found both to be invaluable.

This is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time and I’m very proud to finally say I’ve my own website! 🙌🏻
There is still much to do, so it's not perfect…
I’ll be adding more projects to the portfolio and more blogs too…
but I couldn’t wait any longer to tell you all about it. 🤩
