Hi.

I'm Ciarán 

I am a Dublin based designer and I started my design career in product design, but soon moved into the area of interaction design where I studied an MA in Interaction design in NCAD. In that time, I learned designs role and the process around it, developed human-centred design skills and co-founded a startup in the area of fintech.

My aim is to design experiences that seamlessly integrate into our way of life, but equally have a long lasting value and impact on our lives. I enjoy designing digital and physical products to create better experiences for people.

Experience

My responsibility's included heuristic analysis of UI, wireframes, user flows, user interface design, user research, and visual communications of the research findings. I worked with three other teammates, working closely with our user experience researcher throughout the development of Compensave.

 

 

 

The program aided teams to form startups and gave necessary skills and tutorials to help in progressing the start-up in the areas of, market research, design thinking, product development, feature prototyping, and project management. Finally, five teams faced off by pitching their ideas to a live audience. My team of four progressed through the program, developing our idea with the outcome of winning the final pitch. One of the key factors to our success was the team’s ability to work together and use our different skills to progress our startup.
