About

profile picture of Lauren Day in black and white

I am a UK-born, Galway-raised and Dublin-based designer, when you meet me you may notice my accent is a bit of a hybrid! As a designer I have experience in both digital and print, having worked within product teams, marketing and in graphic design. I have 2 degrees, my first in Fine Art has given me a unique perspective when it comes to my design work and has led me to be investigative and conceptual in my approach. My current role is at a small but busy studio, where we pride ourselves on creating strategic, user-focused experiences for a range of international clients. I love to learn and develop my skills and I am currently working towards my MSc in User Experience Design at IADT in Dublin.
