Eric Gasparro

Art Director

I owe my career to wood-fired pizza.

A few years ago, I found myself balancing a Master’s in Business Management at Smurfit with my job in a popular pizza restaurant. One day, I decided to use this pizza to bribe Rothco’s social team into interviewing me. They rewarded me with a job, and I was lucky enough to work on some award-winning campaigns under the guidance of some of our industry’s best creative minds. After working closely with the creative department, I realised I wanted to be an Art Director.

So, in the winter of 2015, I teamed up with my friend Kieran and we set out to see what the industry had in store for a wannabe creative team.

This is part one of a two-part story. You can read part two in Kieran’s bio.
