Rocliffe encourages new talent with BAFTA

Rocliffe, in partnership with BAFTA, runs the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Competition & Showcase, an initiative which has connected scores of aspiring British writers and filmmakers with agents, development executives and established industry members. Last night was their showcase of three film comedy script extracts by emerging UK talent, selected by an industry jury. These are from a series of digital backdrops which were commissioned from me by Rocliffe and created for each film – it is an honour to work with such talented committed people.

Welcome to Kinnegarland!

Kinnegar Brewing is a brewery in Donegal set up by Libby Carton and Rick LeVert. Before becoming the beer magnates that they are now, Rick and Libby ran one of the most respected and highly regarded design consultancies in Ireland – Carton LeVert. Back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and I was a wet-behind-the-ears NCAD Visual Communication graduate, I was lucky enough to be offered a design position with them, which was the making of me! I was delighted to work with Rick and Libby on their latest venture creating a range of marketing material for their beers – which have wonderfully quirky names such as Yannaroddy, Rustbucket, High Glen, Limeburner, and Wallawalla!
