I’m Saibh, (pronounced SIVE like Five) a Fashion Photographer, Graphic Designer, and Printer from Ireland. I am Creative Director of Into The West Blogger Network, where I head up the design, branding, marketing and social media content for the network. Recently Into The West Blogger Network made finalist at the Accenture Digital Media Awards (#AccentureDMA2016) for ‘Best Brand Using Digital’. The Digital Media Awards are the most prestigious Digital Awards in Ireland. They recognize creativity and innovation across multiple areas of an ever evolving sector which includes digital content creation, advertising, and marketing, social networking, web design and development. Read all about it here.
I love to document things and am fascinated by nature and people. I have been blogging since 2010 as well as working with other Irish bloggers in the areas of design, branding, web design/layout and offline marketing materials too. I thrive on helping people unlock their talents and helping them to realise their dreams. I love to share the knowledge I have gained over the years and I take great pleasure in seeing all the blogs come alive and grow. My core personal ethos is for people to support each other and share knowledge.
Wild Cosmia is my personal blog where I like to blog about life, photography, design, blogging, spiritual wellbeing, happiness, and adventures! My blog is named after a Joanna Newsom song – Wild Cosmia which stole my heart and enchanted my soul the first time I heard it.
Me? I’m an old soul, I know I’ve been here before. I’m into yoga, amethysts, typography, feminism, unexpected adventures and walking by the ocean ’till my lungs feel cold. I love to help people on their creative journeys and delight in seeing them succeed! I work hard every day on my own happiness and thus the happiness of those around me. One day I would love to live on a farm and live easy.
I’m a huge fan of positivity, baby foxes, swearing, great design, and bad-ass rap music. I like to read about the universe and witchcraft, watch old movies in bed and listen to WuTangClan, Louis Armstrong, Erykah Badu, Damian Marley and Billie Holiday – to name a few. I prefer trainers and a leather jacket to heels and couture.
If dogs could talk, I probably wouldn’t have any human friends… #Truth
When I’m not designing, printing, photographing or organizing/speaking at events I can be found working with local charities. Currently, I volunteer with COPE Galway, a local charity working with people affected by domestic violence, homelessness and the elderly too. The Irish Cystic Fibrosis charities are very close to my heart, especially the Cystic Fibrosis Galway Hospital Project. They do amazing work to help the lives of people living with Cystic Fibrosis in Galway and Ireland.
I’ve volunteered with Koh Phangan Animal Care and most recently I’ve been volunteering at Lanta Animal Welfare – both in the south of Thailand. I’m also am an avid supporter of my local animal rescue in Galway; MADRA (Mutts Anonymous Dog Rescue & Adoption), a charity which works to rescue and re-home stray dogs in Galway and Ireland. My puppy Juno is rescue dog from MADRA!

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.” ― Haruki Murakami
