- - About me - -
Hi, I'm Ciara.
I'm Irish - Limerick born, meaning the 'west is best'.
Living in London since 2011.
Associate Creative Director who art directs and writes.
Currently hanging with the crew 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 things such as the first song scientifically tested to make babies happy, a complete new global brand campaign and positioning for Bacardi, and create 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
Any time left is spent cruising art galleries and playing the classical flute. At the same time, obviously.
