Let me introduce myself – I’m Dominic O’Halloran. I’m a designer that helps new and established businesses with their brand identity. I’ve helped many industries since the establishment of my business Kickstart Graphics. In 2015, when I started Kickstart Graphics I wanted to help startup businesses to be unique and strong when they entered their field of work. I wanted to expand my business, hire and teach people graphic design. With further study of my business, it was clear this was not what the market wanted.
Startups and small businesses want to create everything for themselves at the beginning of their journey. A lot of the time, they start with nothing, just themselves. After a while, they tend to realise a few things. 1. They need to reach more people. 2. Their market is lacking information. 3. Their market has gotten overcrowded. When they realise these barriers to success they need to elevate their brand image. This is where they seek out a professional graphic designer. These are the times they have come to me. I’m here to enhance their brand.
I came to this realisation in late 2019. I worked hard to get my branding and website ready to launch. My chosen launch date was the 15th of March 2020. That’s when I took a hit. The whole world took a hit. Many things have changed since then, both globally and personally. I’ve worked through hard times and I’ve tried different areas over the last 2 years. I always come back to design as it’s what I love to do.
