About 5pieces.com

5pieces started a couple of years ago as a design project. The idea was that you would be given 5 pieces of inspiration. These would range from a quote, to an image to a sound even. You then had a given time to come up with a final design. Entries were judged and then displayed on site. The idea proved quite popular back then. But work got the better of my time so I had to leave the site by the wayside for a while. Older screen-shots of 5pieces can be seen here (296kb).

I spent a year in Australia. I held down many bar jobs. I suck at pool. My nickname is Vinny. I have bungee jumped. I can sail. I used to smoke. I paint pictures and used to work as a picture framer. I love vodka. My first computer was a Sinclair Spectrum 48k. I can barely speak Irish. I believe I can speak French. I drive and love a ‘96 Mini Equinox. I live with my continuously upbeat wife Orla and 2 beautiful daughters Alexandra and Katie.
