About

Sheila Duggan
I’m a designer and strategist with over 25 years’ experience in brand communication. I work with public, private and not-for-profit clients creating meaningful messages that deliver the right results. I enjoy collaboration with creative specialists as projects determine – illustrators, architects, digital specialists and more. This online portfolio shows a project range from brand stories with marketing scope, to destination branding and wayfinding.

Approach
Working with your team and often a wider team of creative thinkers, we use these insights to create meaningful messages that resonate with your audience. We believe discovery and open communication, unearths valuable insights to create transformative results. We create and stick to a strategy and programme – never losing sight of the bigger picture.

Services
Whatever a project scale, the approach is with equal ambition. Design services include strategic planning, identity design, brand guidance, promotional material, signage & wayfinding, website interface, brochures and more – whatever a project requires.
