Hey! My name is Conor Rafferty. I am a multidisciplinary designer focused on creating innovative digital experiences. I produce lasting solutions for brand-based issues & create impactful narratives that reach beyond the screen. My passion for design began early as I found myself wanting to communicate more than visual aesthetics through my work. I believe that as a designer, it is my job to push forth more than visualizations & rather connect an audience to a deeper narrative that might not be immediately apparent on the surface.

I am largely intrigued by a modernist approach that pairs with typographic studies, taking inspiration from the Swiss International aesthetic & the Bauhaus current in modern design. This inspiration can be seen through my work where I strive to implement a grid-based structure, yet I believe there is always room for play. Design however, is a much larger concept & field of work than visual creativity. There are many elements behind the work that create a full sense of identity & messaging. I want to show you, my audience, that I am a critical thinker, a problem solver & that I have a unique approach to my workflow. I aim to display my aesthetic as a forward thinking designer, one who knows the rules & principles of design as well as when to break them.

As a young designer in such a diverse & saturated field, I hope that my work can make an impact. Whether that be through sustainable practices, helping address real world issues, or by simply creating fun & fresh content, I aim to uplift those around me & bring a positive attitude to such a beautiful & creative field of work.
