Kay McKeon, LetterEleven Design

Work Experience
I studied Visual Communications and Interactive Media at IADT in Dublin from 2000 to 2004. Having a strong work ethic, I have amassed over 15 years’ experience working in design practises while also completing freelance work. I have worked for a broad range of clients in Ireland and overseas including worldwide corporations, charity organisations, institutions, SMEs and start-ups.

 

What else I get up to…
My life is balanced between being creative and my outdoor adventures. I’m a hiker, biker, fresh air liker. I love my skis, I adore my yoga mat and I can guarantee that I will look at any big hill with a huge smile on my face. I have traveled the world,  lived abroad for over 11 years and I am proud to say that I have a diverse range of wonderful friends.

 

Volunteer Work

I am passionate about using my work and life skills to enhance the lives of others. I am a Breast Cancer survivor. As one friend commented, “Cancer happened for you, not to you!” I am a PPI (Patient & Public Involvement) member for the Irish Cancer Society and the Irish Association for Cancer Research. Catching cancer early meant my prognosis was very positive, while the hurdles I had to jump were huge, my big battles with the disease are in the past. They say you only get one chance in life, I feel like I’ve been given a second.
