About

I’m a multi-disciplinary designer with over ten years experience. I’m currently Digital Creative at Bliss in Manchester, and I also work as an independent designer & web developer. I specialise in brand communication and my work includes brand identities, digital experiences and print design, for clients large and small. If you’d like to discuss any projects or collaborations, you can contact me on hello@deandolan.co.uk.

Before joining Bliss, I was lead designer and front-end developer at PushON, where I specialised in designing for ecommerce with a focus on usability and conversion. After graduating from the University of Salford with a degree in Design for Digital Media, and before joining PushON, I worked at Igniso, also as designer and FE developer, leading the rebrand of the company’s core service, Wavestreaming, designing user interfaces for their products and developing product marketing websites. Before that, I worked at leading digital and branding agency, Creative Spark, as designer and developer, working on projects for a diverse range of companies and brands including Universal Music and Manchester United.
