Front End Developer and Creative Director

I make things look really nice with lines of code and lots of tea. I’m also the Creative Director at Squawk Creative.

Alan Coughaln

I live in cork but can work remotely so I can collaborate with anyone, anywhere.

I graduated C.I.T in 2011 with an Honours BA in Multimedia and have worked freelance up until 2016. I then founded and run Squawk Creative – a virtual design studio targeting sole traders, startups and SME’s. I have worked with clients both big and small ranging from single person traders up to national charities like AADI and multinationals like Coca Cola.

What I can do


How I can make things look nice


I design any and all items that make up a brand from logos to flyers to custom icons and business cards.

Latest Software

Adobe and Affinity design software are what I mainly use to get the job done expertly and efficiently.

UX and UI

A deep understanding of user experience design helps shape the interface design of the project.


How I make things work


I mainly work with Wordpress and Squarespace to provide content management systems and blogs to my clients.


I use WooCommerce, Squarespace and Shopify to get my clients selling online safe and secure

Latest Coding Standards

Up to date knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript ES6 and more help me build the best possible sites.

Squawk Creative

I founded Squawk in early 2016 with the aim of providing an agency level of service but on a scale and price range that suited smaller businesses, sole traders and SME’s. Based in Cork, Ireland but operating out of a virtual office, it allows us to reduce our overheads and in turn pass on those savings to our customers. It also means we are extremely flexible and base our working day around our customers needs. Sound good? That’s because it is.
