Philip Watkin

myself2A brief description of who I am:
Leaving School in 1982 I was accepted in both the Dublin Art Colleges,:
Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology
and The National College of Art and Design. I attended the National College.Being hungry to get into the real world I started in advertising in Dublin, where I started as a visualisation and layout artist,
in Adsell and later moved to the Birchill Company and other Graphic Studios in Dublin.
Having worked for some years in various design fields from advertising agencies and graphic design studios to entrepreneurial projects such as property developments and interior design. I have successfully
contributed my design skills to many projects from concept stage through to
completion.To mention a few of these projects:
Designer in Charge for the Seanachie Irish Pub in Nashville Tennessee,
Graphic consultant for interior design project in Hong Kong,
Creative director for Celtic Concepts,
where I handled all the design, and illustration Projects as well as many corporate imaging/branding projects.
In 2004 I set up Dolphin Studios which is a design and illustration studio based in West Cork, Ireland. Dolphin Studios specialises in architectural and industrial illustration along with model making, 3D modeling and presentations. It also handles a variety of graphic design and illustration projects.In 2005 myguideTravel, (formerely 12 Travel), took me on to head up their in-house design team as Creative Director for their expanding web based Travel Company with branches in Scotland England Wales, Poland and USA.
In the late 1980’s and 1990’s I have held many solo art exhibtions, both here at home and in the USA.
