- - About me - -
Hi, I'm Ciara.
I'm Irish - Limerick born, meaning the 'west is best'.
Living in London since 2011.
Creative Director who art directs and writes.
Currently hanging at McCann in a new department at their London office. Previously I was permalance for 2 years at JOINT London working on Amazon, TSB, Kettle Chips and Thatchers Cider. Before that I was at BETC making work just beginning with B - bunnies, booze, blokes with their tops off, beauty and baby adverts.
I've been lucky to work in places as far as DDB Canada to starting out at Ogilvy & Mather Dublin.
During my career I've got to work with amazing people making work that has campaigned for sex worker rights, the world’s first 3D printed crisp pack, several global TV adverts for Amazon, the first song scientifically tested to make babies happy, a complete new global brand campaign and positioning for Bacardi, and the cutest ad ever for hotel brand - ibis.
By evening I volunteer with Creative Equals and She Says as a committee member helping with their events and as a For Creative Girls and Who's Your Momma mentor - supporting young women in advertising across the world.
By night I draw my Twitter followers and have sketched over 600 portraits for my blog - #TwitollowerSketches. Follow me if you want one @ciaraomeara. While at the weekend I’m renovating a house in south London with my husband. Any time left is spent cruising art galleries and playing the classical flute. At the same time, obviously.
