Claire Thompson

I am a creative individual who has a passion for innovation and design.

My best work has derived from projects with a strong user-centred focus. This encompasses project work in service design, UX design and product design. I find enjoyment most when the projects I undertake employ a more holistic approach to the problem at hand, this is where I have found a strong passion in the research phases of design. I embrace delivering insights from research into the design solution, to create a usable product, system or service. When designing, I enjoy being technically challenged, testing the designs and iterating until a desirable solution is achieved. Being immersed in the fast moving consumer goods industry during my placement year for a leading supplier of added value brands and customer branded foods to the Irish and UK FMCG markets enabled me to understand the importance of graphical elements in design and the importance in the small details. These skills are transferable to many design applications. In the future, I would like to develop my skills further in design practice. I would like to engage in a collaborative work environment that can enable me to expand my current skill set.
