Hello! Is it Foody you're looking for?
Siobhan Foody got ink in her blood during two weeks of work experience in a newspaper office at the age of 15. That was back in 1997, a time when regional printing presses still roared, floppy discs cluttered desks and zip drives were considered a status symbol.
Five years later, she became the group's youngest production manager and won the first of four European Newspaper Design Awards for Excellence. In 2004, she picked up a 1st Placed World Honour from the International Newspaper Marketing Association in New York.
In 2013, Siobhan started her own business in the West of Ireland, as an international award-winning designer, with more than 16 years' experience in the media industry.
A seasoned professional with a strong background in marketing, Siobhan combines her years of experience to offer a range of services – from creative consultancy to event planning – to help start-ups and established businesses worldwide. She has also worked with several community groups to 'put some shape' on their projects.
Originally from Castleconnor, Co Sligo, and now based between Ballina and Castlebar, Co Mayo, she also specialises in print design and exclusive wedding stationery.
When away from her beloved Mac, Siobhan loves travelling and all things Father Ted. She also runs FoodyTours.ie, which offers gourmet tasting tours in the West of Ireland to foodies (by name or by nature!). Siobhan came up with the concept and design for Castlebar Gin Trail, in association with Castlebar Chamber of Commerce, and is also a member of the Wild Atlantic Words literary festival committee, the Mayo Street Food Festival committee and Westport Food Festival commitee.
