Craig Stewart

BDes (Hons)

Visual & Graphic Designer

Including Web & App Design

My original interest was in Graphic Design but then I was introduced to the world of Web Design. For the past 4 years I studied Interaction Design at Ulster University, Belfast School of Art and graduated in July 2019.

My preference is to create and develop clean and clear designs for websites and I like to use clean typography and hints of strong colours to add character and a modern feel to the site.

My Journey

A very brief description of how I have got where I am today. I was born in 1997 attended Regent House Grammar School.

Whilst at school I started to develop a passion for drawing still life pictures. I became fascinated with technology and then went on to discover how art and technology could combine together. This led me towards graphic design as a career.

I started studying Foundation Art and Design at Ulster University in 2015 with the intention of specialising in Graphic Design. Then I discovered Interaction Design. This changed my mind completely. I was told that this course was 'graphic design but for the web'. This was definately the direction I wanted to go, so 4 years ago I embarked upon the Interaction Design degree course, graduating in July 2019.

During the past couple of years I have started to build up a small client base with a number of small businesses asking me to undertake design work for them. You can view some of my work in the portfolio section.

When I'm not designing, I love to play golf. I started playing golf in 2012 after spending many years playing both rugby and hockey. I became a member of The Blackwood after playing just 4 rounds of golf as I fell in love with the sport straight away. I joined the junior team and worked my way onto the first team after 1 year. In 2014, I was appointed Junior Captain for the year. It has taken me 7 years but I have now managed to reduce my handicap from 36, all the way down to 6. Getting down to single figures has been a huge achievement for me.
