About me
Hello there, I'm Helen Lismore. I grew up watching the show 'Art Attack' a bit too much, to the point I began making my own shoes out of paper (and a lot of sellotape) which I debuted by walking all the way to my friends house. Needless to say, the shoes didn’t last as long as I hoped. I have lived most of my life in Belfast, Northern Ireland. This has unfortunately resulted in my unusual pronunciations of words like ‘flour’ and ‘shower’, and saying “wee” a bit too much - something which I never realised I said a lot until I went to university in Leeds. Where I graduated from making paper shoes to full advertising campaigns. When it comes to advertising, I’m an art director who is sometimes good with words - just maybe not the pronunciations. I’m most passionate about creating fresh ideas that really resonate with people and make you think twice. Email me at: helen.lismore@hotmail.com

  • The Times & The Sunday Times (2019)
    The Times & The Sunday Times (2019)News gets distorted and spread online. We often tend to separate ourselves from the screens in front of us, which is why I aimed to show what fake news might look like 'behind' the screen; likening it to the childhood game of whispers - the story is passed along and altered with each person and ultimately, the truth gets lost. This is why trustworthy journalism such as The Times and The Sunday Times is more important now than ever.
