Business Card Design

These business cards were design for the use of the Production Manager and myself. The cards differ for each person in the choice of overlaid images, which were selected by the person in question. The QR code in each case sends the recipient back to the radio station's website.

Print Run: 500 x Double sided // 85x55mm // 4/4-colour CMYK // 300 gsm semi-glossy card

Craol Féile Training

Craol is the representative, co-ordinating, lobbying, training, and support group for Irish Community Radio. Each year one of the 23 member stations hosts a nationwide training conference called Féile. (Flirt FM hosted this event in 2010, for more info see the website).

Over the past few years I have been invited to lecture on Social Media (and how a community radio station can use them effectively) and Branding and Promoting a community radio station on a budget.

The topics and areas covered are summarised in the handouts below, available to download in Word format.

Social Networking Notes

Branding and Promotion Notes

The information contained on the notes was the jumping off point for a great group discussion and sharing of ideas.

Flirt Newsfeed Website Design

Flirt Newsfeed is the flagship current affairs show on Galway's student radio station, themed around trending topics, as in Twitter etc. The existing Flirt FM website wasn't the right platform to publish the multitude of interviews conducted for the show, so a separate tailored website was needed. blind forwards to, a skinned blogspot. Elements included in the website include;

•Mixcloud players for listening back to interviews
•An embedded webstream player for listening to the show
•A google calendar automatically updating with Flirt FM’s events on Facebook marked “attending”
•Galway weather forecast widget
•RSS feeds from Flirt FM’s Facebook posts, the Galway Independent and google’s Irish news feed

The website was designed to self-update from various sources so that there would always be fresh events and news to be found on each visit.

Cakes2Go Logo & Flyer Design

Designs for a relative's bakery, initial logo & general information leaflet.

Double-sided print: 105 x 210 mm DL Portrait, Paper: 170 gsm semi glossy
