I've been involved with art & design for as long as I can remember, from drawing at an early age to making the most of creative subjects in secondary school. In 2006 I took on 4 years of Fine Art at Limerick School of Art & Design, where I came across the wonders of the Adobe Creative Suite for the first time. I spent the majority of my time on whatever computers were available on campus, learning everything I could while applying it to my main studies and projects. It is here that I also developed a keen interest in blogging, writing and the online sharing of my projects and experiences. 

2010-2012: Freelance artist & writer @ PJTierney.net
After graduating in 2010 I started working from home, as a freelance artist and writer. After designing a series of Formula One posters in 2011 as a personal project, my work was exposed to wide audience, as racing fans from around the world became interested in the designs I created. This lead to various opportunities, from producing and selling posters for 2 years to being featured in notable publications such as Top Gear magazine and AUTOSPORT. I also had the opportunity to work on an exciting project with the Red Bull Racing Formula One Team in early 2012, with my artwork featured on their site for over a year.

2013-2019: Digital Marketing Coordinator @ KONAMI Europe
I moved to the UK in 2013, to start a career in marketing, web publishing and community management with KONAMI Digital Entertainment B.V. (KONAMI Europe). My work revolves around the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME, primarily focused on developing its official website, social media channels and the coordination of live tournament coverage and esports. I played the game for over 10 years, and worked with KONAMI on various freelance projects before joining full-time.

2019-Present: Social Media Manager @ Codemasters
In 2019 I left KONAMI Europe after 6 years of successful projects, joining Codemasters as Social Media Manager for the DiRT franchise. I have grown up with racing games, and have taken on a new challenge to share that passion with a world of rally fans.

PJTierney.net in 2019
Since moving to the UK, art & design have reverted back to a hobby of mine. The artwork I create now focuses around my two main interests; motorsport and videogames. I also quite enjoy the creative process in general, and regularly share project updates and sketches on Twitter & Instagram. The work that I produce in my spare time often feeds into my full-time work, and the lessons learned there feed back the other way. It is a creative feedback loop that I take great pride in developing to push my skills forward.
Throughout the years I have had the opportunity to work with many amazing people on wonderful projects,
the most notable of which are highlighted below.
