In 1980, I finished college and went in search of employment. Luckily I got a job straight away in a travel agency in Dublin City centre. The job entailed designing and producing artwork for newspaper adverts, magazines and making up the window display promoting the business.

I didn’t have much experience if any, but I completely immersed myself in the task. I also had a certain amount of freedom and this allowed me to experiment and try new ideas. Within three years I had achieved all I could in that job—I had designed and overseen production of all their summer and winter holiday catalogues for the entire country.
