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.
- ECP 'Make All Women Safe'It's legal to be a sex worker in the UK but it's illegal for them to work together. The current UK law puts 70,000 women’s lives at risk by forcing them to work alone. It's time to #makeallwomensafe. Stop it being a crime to work together.

- Kettle Chips 'Real Seasonings' Greetings'We gave Kettle Chips fans what they really want for Christmas - a crisp pack that's actually a shaker full of their favourite crisp seasoning. So they could make anything, even their Christmas dinner taste like their favourite snack. We custom made only 5 of them by 3D scanning and creating the world’s first 3D printed crisp packs. Then we gave away for free on social to lucky Kettle fans. The project cost only £15k and we managed to get 16,000 entries and seen by over 7 million in 1 week.
