A.K.A This Boy Knows!
I adapted this social media name way back in the day in 2014 when I kickstarted my online career.
I'm what they call a Jack-of-All-Trades, knowing a little about a lot of different areas & mainly having interests that span wide & far!
Back in 2014, I fell into the world of Instagram & social media. After sharing my mental health journey across some news outlets & gaining a following, I leaned into my passions for Fashion & Content Creation and kickstarted my online journey.
Getting the opportunities to expand my platform and personal skills, I continued my work & got to collaborate & travel with some of my all-time favourite brands like boohooMAN, ASOS, Primark & JD Sports.
Prior to this, I had an educational background in media production, and after a couple of years I expanded my education & knowledge in the fields of Photography, Marketing & Branding. This led me to work with some local businesses on a more professional level, and eventually go on to launch my own service business in those areas.
All-in-all, I'm a super creative person, who likes to try my hand in a lot of different fields. I continue to work closely with large fashion & lifestyle brands on my own social media. As well as running ARKYEN Creative, a branding & content studio for business owners, and studio ky, an online store where I create stationery, art prints & accessories.
my journey to here
2015 - 2017
Sharing my personal mental health journey & getting published & featured across news outlets & mental health platforms in Ireland & The UK.
Creating social media content around my personal style & lifestyle. Getting to work with some of my favourite brands on UGC collaborations. Expanding my skills & knowledge in the areas of Photography, Web Design & Marketing, offering those services to businesses.
2018 - 2019
Began working with more brands on my personal content & hitting major goals with my favourites. Including attending fashion events & travelling with brands. In summer 2019, in my career I went from freelancer to business owner, launching 'We Know Digital', a marketing & content agency.
2020 - 2021
Continued my brand collaborations, travelled some more, and then the world went into lockdown! I took a back seat from socials, as most people did to get through life in these times! I continued my client work with my own business & worked a lot on expanding my knowledge, and experience & refining my services. I launched my e-commerce art brand in 2020, and later I revisited what I wanted my other business to be, and in late 2021, rebranded We Know Digital to what it is today - ARKYEN Creative.
I'm happier than ever running ARKYEN working with the most amazing clients in building their brands, I create the most bold designs for my e-commerce store studio ky, and I somehow still try to juggle my first passion of fashion content on my own socials!
