Diane Higgins Design

Diane Higgins Design Cork- making your own content

As a designer of many things from brands to websites to digital content, my main role is not to create, but to listen to my clients.
My process involves LISTENING first, then THINKING about the objectives, and finally CREATING.

I am so passionate about getting it right that I won’t stop designing until you are so happy with the design that you want to take down your kids’ photos from the good room and hang up my work.

My Work

What people say

"Diane designed and built a slick, professional new website for me to showcase my work in print, TV and radio and to highlight my events work. She is an exceptionally detail-orientated, eagle eyed web designer with a flair for design and a head for business. She's thorough, precise and made lots of suggestions for elements I hadn't considered, which added to the finished product. Diane is a pleasure to work with and I am thrilled with the website, which has really added to the professionalism of my offering. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."

Deirdre O'Shaughnessy
News Editor at Irish Examiner

"Diane immediately understood what I wanted my branding to convey - she took my fledgling design ideas and brought them to a whole new level. She has a real eye for what works, both in terms of design and overall content, and her attention to detail and commitment to quality is second to none. She has been a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her services."

Ingrid Seim
Founder at Avenues Consulting & Coaching

"I have worked with Diane on a number of projects from start-up to major clients. Diane created my Really Useful logo, which perfectly captures my vision of my company. Diane and I have supported early stage start-ups to refine their marketing and create visuals that communicate their brand message. At each stage Diane has used a professional process which created an effective structure which is often missing from the startup company mindset. Diane has really helped me to grow my business. Her skill as a graphic designer has enhanced my research reports. Her attention is second to none. Her inputs and insights have been very valuable and have given me a greater appreciation of the value of working with a graphic designer. Working with Diane has enabled me to focuss on the most important aspects of my work and has definitely improved my time management. She is a pleasure to work with and takes the time to really understand your business. If you are serious about developing your business, I would recommend Diane as one of the key people you need to speak to."

Jane Leonard
Lecturer, Corporate Trainer

"Having work with Diane for several years I can attest to her unique talents and abilities. Diane is both creative and practical in equal measure and excels when it comes to understanding a marketing or design brief. She possesses an unrivalled skillset, combining creative flair with "hands on" marketing know-how. I have no hesitation in recommending Diane as she is a consumate professional and also an extremely personable individual."

Ivan Lavelle
Managing Director, Forza Direct Marketing

“I came across Diane’s business when she posted a logo she had designed on LinkedIn that I liked. After an initial consultation where Diane built up an understanding of my business I asked Diane to work with me to design a logo, help me design a report and give me some guidance on website layout. Diane came up with a number of options. I really liked one, and Diane happily made a few changes to it based on my feedback. I also feel she delivered way more than I expected in terms of the report and website advice. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to outsource graphic design work. I am using a local enterprise trading online voucher and Diane has been very accommodating helping me with the admin requirements that go hand in hand with this type of grant!”

Cathy Balfe
Career Coach at Career Coach Me

"Diane was brilliant to work with. We gave her a brief and within a tight time schedule she produced the goods. 100% recommended."

Brendan Halpin
Founder & CEO, WeSwitchU.ie

"Diane has my highest recommendation as a very talented graphic designer, dedicated, self-motivated, capable with a very solid work ethic. She has been designing brochures for me for many years for an annual Science Fair and year on year she produces an excellent creative design. Her attention to detail and fast turnaround of projects is vital for me as a client. Diane is a personable professional at all times and I am more than happy to recommend her services."

Norma Welch
Faculty of Engineering & Science Administrator, MTU

"Diane is a very talented graphic designer and an absolute pleasure to work with! I went to Diane looking to get a logo designed for my new home accessories business, I had an idea of what I wanted but found it hard to vocalise what it was. However Diane asked all the right questions and in a small amount of time she was able to put together some beautiful concepts that truly captured my business and what I wanted. The hardest part was choosing just one logo! Every concept Diane shared with me showed just how well she listened to what I was looking for and was able to capture this is some stunning logo designs. I would highly recommend Diane and hopefully I will get the opportunity to work with her again in the future. "

Fiona O'Regan
Owner, All About Your Home

"Diane helped us turn a concept into reality by designing our company logo and an entire brand style guide. She is an skillful communicator which made it a joy to work with her throughout the entire design, feedback and finalisation process. I would highly recommend to anyone!"

Shane O'Regan
CPS

"Diane was recommended to me by a business partner. I met her for an initial meeting and she came well prepared. During the meeting she understood what Bia Sásta stands for and delivered excellent results with imagination and creativity. She explained her inspiration behind any suggestions and she took feedback very well. We had a logo decided quite quickly. I can only recommend Diane Lilley as a very creative designer."

Elke O'Mahony
Food Marketing & Business Consultant, Bia Sasta

"I contacted Diane with the hope of increasing my on-line presence in January 2019. I found her expertise and professionalism in the area of web design and consultancy to be second to none. Dianes attention to detail, guidance, and advice were excellent and Diane was always available for a discussion regarding the best approach when the need arose. The feedback we received from our clients was extremely positive regarding the ease of use and navigation of our new website. I would have no hesitation recommending Diane Higgins Design and will certainly use her expertise again in the near future."

Martin Ahern
Director, Ahern Safety Consultancy

"Diane worked with me recently on a project and based on my experience I would like to endorse Diane for the quality of her work. The team took on board my brief, researched and then delivered exactly what we had discussed. Thanks again Diane, look forward to working with you again soon."

Jason Brown
Director, Coerver Coaching Munster

"Working with Diane and her company To the moon and back was absolutely phenomenal. From start to finish the professionalism, attention to detail and overall ease in the creation process was fantastic to witness. They made the design process as easy as possible. For anyone doing Wedding Invitations, it can be a stressful and overwhelming task. Diane took the pressure off us, we gave the ideas and colours we wanted and she made them into reality and the fantastic design you see now. We highly recommend anyone looking to create a new visual design for their wedding or business to get in contact with Diane, you will not regret the decision!!"

Canice Walsh
Wedding Stationery client

"Diane designed our wedding invitations, mass booklets, table names and signs for the church. She was so helpful anytime we connected with her and when we were unsure of what we even wanted she was emailing to give her advice. Every suggestion and thought we had was considered when we got the samples and she was so easy to deal with. Would recommend Diane for all your designing needs"

Padraig O'Connor
Wedding Stationery client

"Diane was excellent to deal with from the word go! She designed our invites, RSVP cards, thank you cards and wedding ceremony booklets and I must say they are beautiful, exactly how we imagined. Her service and attention to detail are second to none and we would highly recommend her."

Kaylie Strange
Wedding Stationery client

Diane was an absolute dream to work with! I had an idea & a vision for a product that I wanted to create- a deck of affirmation cards for women - but had no idea how I would make it a reality. So I reached out to Diane and, after a few phone calls & emails back & forth, Diane provided me with incredible concepts for the cards that captured exactly the vision I had in my mind & the feeling that I wanted to create. Diane made the whole process so easy for me. She dealt with the printers for me, arranged samples of cards & boxes for me, and even collected the finished product & delivered it to my door. I am so thrilled with the finished product. The cards arrived last week & I will be launching them soon. I would highly recommend Diane. She is an excellent graphic designer who listens to her clients needs. She is professional, friendly and extremely efficient.
