My name is Ciara Gilmartin and I am currently finishing up the masters in Creative Advertising in TU Dublin, whilst working as an Art Director intern in Rothco.
I studied Fine Art before stumbling into the advertising world, and have found the shift to purposeful creativity-inspiring and uplifting. I have a passion for illustration and try to blur the boundaries between art and advertising as much as possible (when it’s on brand…).
This year, I was selected as the first Irish student to attend the Roger Hatchuel Academy at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. In addition to the free croissants, rose and beach parties, it was an invaluable week of learning and working with talented advertising students from all over the world. I look forward to many more exciting opportunities in the creative industry.
