About Me

A big warm hello, I’m really happy you’re here getting to know me as we could be working together very soon.

I’m a designer, strategist, educator and business owner. I love small details, finding patterns, inclusive design, making things and finding solutions. I have a masters in computing and design and over 20 years of professional design experience with a special focus on digital. I have led projects across state government, not for profits and education. Now I work with makers, creatives and ethical businesses to help them achieve their business goals and establish digital brands.

Partnering with me is like having a strategist, designer, and advisor invested in your success without the overhead costs of a full-time employee. I'm an extension of your team, caring about your business as much as you do.

I’m here to help you navigate the challenging landscape that is digital.

I was born and raised in Dublin, I’ve studied and worked around the world and currently home is either Western Australia, Spain or Ireland. I serve clients globally, I wouldn't call myself a digital nomad but more of a digital local. I like to get to know the people I work with and where they do business.

My goal is to empower you to achieve your business dreams online. Now more than ever we're seeing the importance of digital and I can help you create a digital experience for your brand.

I’ve been online and working with clients since the days of MySpace. So come say hi, connect with me! I’m really easy to find. I’m orlalarkin everywhere. I’m even on TikTok although you won’t find me dancing.

Frequently asked questions...

I’m not considering full-time positions at this time, however I’m currently available for freelance or contractual work. I like to foster longterm design partnerships with the people I work with.

You know the answer to this one... how long is a piece of string? Every project is unique and my rates reflect the scope and complexity of the work. The best thing to do is get in touch with me and have a chat about your project.

Yes, I personally do all my own design work and you will always work directly with me during our design partnership.

I build all the websites I design including this website. I use WordPress, Shopify and Squarespace, the platform we choose together depends on your business requirements.

You can email me or contact me on Whatsapp and we can schedule a free introductory call to talk about your project.

This is a question that I frequently ask myself.

Some dream projects I’d like to work on include:

Any website or digital product that addresses and aims to solve issues in healthcare or the disability sector.

A project that's related to fine art or crafts.
