Welcome to the design practice of Ciarán Hanrahan.
Ciarán is full-stack freelance product designer with 12 years experience designing best-in-class digital products. Ciarán also runs an agency working at the intersection of brand and product design with his partner Emma here.
I first contracted with Cal to design a marketing site and web-app and then joined to help define their product roadmap, lead all design initiatives and build out a design system for a fast growing open source product. Cal recently announced a $25M Series A off the back of a very successful year.cal.com
I worked on a contract with the team at Qatalog to help improve core features around pages, posts & sharing while also helping build out their new design system to cater for a rapidly expanding feature set across their product - the go-to place for team collaboration.qatalog.com
Conjure is a new a behavior change & achievements platform built by solopreneur James Whelton. I've worked with James in short sprints over the last three years to help create a visual identity, a web app, a website and a component library to enable him to launch and grow his application.conjure.so
What I appreciated most about Ciarán was his pragmatic approach to designing software. He focuses on simplicity and strips back an interface to only the essential elements. He skillfully used this approach to create an entirely new product for video creators at OneFootball. Upon release, the work was highly praised for its impact and "simple UI/UX".
