Gary O'Connor

Graphic Designer

Belfast, United Kingdom
I am graphic designer from Northern Ireland. I specialise in branding and print design.

Last year (2016) I took some time out to travel and live abroad. Spending most of this time in Melbourne, Australia, I continued to take on freelance projects to keep my skill set sharp. Pre 2016, I spent 2 great years as a junior designer at multidisciplinary agency Face Communications (Portadown, N. Ireland) gaining lots of experience. Before this, I interned at design agency 2b:creative (Lisburn, N. Ireland) during the summers of 2011 and 2012 while I completed my studies.

In my spare time I like to explore my growing interest in photography (check out my Instagram profile for all my travel shots), read, and absorb myself in all things design.

If you have any work enquiries, employment opportunities or you would just like to say hello feel free to get in touch via email or direct message through Behance.
