Excited to be a mentor with The Big Idea – Ireland!
A brilliant initiative and amazing opportunity aimed to connect innovative Transition Year students with mentors in the design industry on their creative thinking.
The Big Idea is a practically-oriented creative programme which empowers students to use their creativity and design thinking to develop a B!G Idea solution to tackle society’s biggest challenges.
It aims to foster creativity and innovation within the Irish education system so that current students can develop the tools to think outside the box. It shows the importance of design in schools. Exciting to see the ideas the students are coming up with and help them develop their Big Ideas!
Brilliant to recently work on the branding of Your Life Audit. Your Life Audit is a business and brand run by Catriona Kennedy, specialising in one-to-one personal life coaching, corporate coaching and coaching for schools and groups. It aims to empower clients with the tools and resources they need to unlock, achieve and maximise their personal and professional development and fulfilment.
Life coaching is a rewarding process aimed at giving you the control and direction to embrace life and fulfil your potential. It can help you identify and utilise your innate skills and qualities, develop optimism and build positive relationships, find true meaning and purpose in life and more. To put simply, coaching is all about creating positive change for you, with you and in you.
I highlighted the ‘U’ in Your Life Audit to emphasise one of the main points that they would like to get across to their clients, that –
‘Once you focus on you, anything can happen’.Catriona Kennedy, Your Life Audit Coaching

International Design Award Winner 2019
Just arrived back from an amazing trip to the sunny Los Angeles for the International Design Awards ceremony in the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood! It was brilliant to be recognised among such a talented and creative group of international designers.
The IDA awards celebrate and promote creative talent and expertise in graphic design and other areas such as architecture, fashion and product design.
I received an Honourable Mention Award in the IDA Awards for the brand identity and design of Origin Chain Brand Identity, a blockchain software solutions providing users with reliable proof-of-origin services and another award for the brand identity for Brid Kehoe Coaching, a life coach practice helping guide people towards meeting their goals.
The ceremony was very exciting, with a cocktail reception beforehand, where there was a lot of mingling of creatives in the beautiful Pacific Design Centre.
Frēsh 18 Carbon Award Winner
It was a great achievement to receive a Carbon Award in the Frēsh 18 Design Awards for the packaging design work of Polski Polish Bread. I really enjoyed working on it, so to receive great recognition for the standard of work, gives an added sense of accomplishment that it has been received well by creative judges and peers in the design industry.
The POLSKI Bread range was created by authentic Polish bakery Inter Europol, exclusively for Tesco consumers across the UK. Known for their taste, purity, and authenticity, they’re the largest clean-label bakery in Poland, producing real slow-rise sourdough bread and other bakery products using traditional stone-baking methods for over 30 countries worldwide.
“The brief was to design a new packaging brand for a range of Polish bread to be launched in Tesco stores across the UK. The main target audience is consumers who love Polish food, therefore it was important to ensure that the branding made a clear, instant connection to Poland, for strong shelf stand-out.
The result is engaging design, carefully tailored to their target audience.
