About Liam Dempsey

Liam Dempsey
Me in August 2014

I’m a communications designer working in both print and web media. Fascinated by the thought of distributing ideas on screen and on paper, I have 15 years of experience as a marketing consultant, designer and copy writer.

The internet, with its ability to communicate across the face of the world in seconds, never ceases to amaze me. And yet, a printed piece, with its tactile surface, its rigid and clearly defined edges holds a certain romanticism.

I began a design career in America in 2000. In 2002, I re-located to the UK, arriving in London in September. Since then, I have moved steadily west from SW18 to SL6 (Maidenhead, Berkshire), and then on to OX33 (Horspath, Oxford), where I arrived in September 2006. In 2009 I moved again, this time back to the USA. I now live just outside Philadelphia. The move coincides with the expansion of LBDesign.

When I am not plopped in front of the computer, (playing, working or just chilling out), I enjoy reading, running, watching and playing football (soccer), drinking good beers and whiskies and spending time outdoors in the wooded hills of eastern Pennsylvania.

In May 2012, I co-founded the Philly ‘burbs WordPress Meetup, the little brother to the Philly WordPress Meetup. It’s exciting to see that we’re still going strong! I keep myself active in the WordPress community.

Lastly, if you’re looking for a new podcast, you might try listening to Hallway Chats, a little show I co-host with Tara Claeys.
