Some of my work

Years experience in the creative industry

I started as a junior creative in one of Northern Ireland’s top advertising agencies working on small print jobs since then I have worked in an events company responsible for designing all promotional and marketing material. From there I went on to manage both studio and production departments in a national car magazine. Although this was a managerial role for managing other designers, I was still responsible for designing magazine front covers, supplements and other promotional work plus liaising with management teams to work on national campaigns.
I now work freelance for one of Ireland’s largest daily newspapers were I work on various projects from ad production and marketing work to features, supplements and magazines.

Just a word of thanks to you for getting all the artwork through so quickly and also for the fact that the artwork was such high quality (giving me no problems at all). Thanks again for all your help.

John is intensively creative and was able to execute my new logo and website with speed, efficiency and professionalism. His knowledge allowed me to have confidence and breathe easy with one less hassle when setting up a new business. John was patient and simplified many areas I wasn’t aware of taking control with ease. Communication skills were exemplary. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of John Barron Design.
