Stories are not simply told. They are recreated, designed and reinvented at every turn. With every new imagery, every word - be it added or subtracted - and every audience, the weight, value and meaning of a story shifts. Paddy is a queer designer fascinated by the ways in which stories may be shown and told. As such, they have spent years of their professional and personal life broadening their horizons.

Navigating the ever-changing waters of the political and the aesthetic, they are quick to adapt and take charge, albeit in an irreverently calm, curious and rather silly manner. Their work may be commercial, detailed and trendy as well as multi-mediatic, sharp and even chaotic at times. Their creative reach expands to a myriad of fields, for it is through the physicality of print that stories become tactile and through the evanescence of the virtual that they traverse new paths. The plurality of Paddy’s being makes them a well-rounded, narrative-driven and ever-exploring person in both their personal and professional life.

Paddy’s days are filled with passion and dedication. Whether they be folding, pressing and binding zines or carefully reformulating a brand identity, their projects reflect the work of a meticulously perfectionist and ever-learning explorer - adding a new story to their roster as they sip a pint on Friday night.
