Paul Delaney likes to draw pictures, scribble ideas for stories, make stuff look nice on a page and brighten people’s day. Luckily he gets to do all these things as a graphic designer, illustrator and maker.
Paul has been creating brand identities and crafting creative visual communication for businesses in Ireland and abroad since 2006. His award-winning design studio, Magnetic, is a busy hive of creativity, collaboration, imagination, coffee and power naps.
In 2019 he returned to University to study for a Masters Degree in illustration. Since graduating with a distinction in 2021, Paul has been working hard but very happily on pivoting his career towards being a freelance illustrator and picture book maker.
When Paul isn’t writing about himself in 3rd person he loves to hang out with his dog Barley, who he considers the greatest thing in the world since slice bread and loves to the moon and back.
Commissions & Collabs
Paul’s areas of expertise are design and illustration for children’s books, branding, cards and stationery, clothing and prints. He is represented by Bell Lomax Moreton and currently working with his agent to develop a number of picture book ideas. Paul is available for commissions, collaborations and always keen to hear about possible creative pursuits.
