D&AD New Blood Wooden Pencil Winner:
Connect. Work. Play
This is a D&AD entry for Crowne Plaza Brief 2017. Created by Adrianna Bilas and myself. As one of the world's leading hotels, Crowne Plaza does a lot of things well, however, from our research and surveys we found out that most of the young professionals have never heard of or stayed at Crowne Plaza. We have delivered an identity to transform Crowne Plaza into a brand that is more flexible, unique and fun. We have also designed a whole guest experience by creating new services which the hotel may offer. They are represented by five colours used in the brand identity. The outcome is more appealing to next generation of the business travellers.
I am a multi-disciplinary designer based in Bristol.
My varied skillset includes: illustration, print and digital advertising, branding, brochure and magazine editorial. I am an enthusiastic designer with a strong work ethic who is not afraid to get involved in new experiences. I have 3 years of experience within the creative industry. I am a determined individual that absorbs inspiration and research. I love nothing more than a challenging brief!
The fun stuff: When I'm not designing I have a strong passion for food and drink, exploring new food and cuisines. My Spotify playlists include Hip-hop, electronic and country. From Ireland, I love getting out of the city and exploring new places.
Current role: Midweight Designer @ Swordfish Advertising.
