My name is Cian O'Connell and I'm an Art Director, Graphic Designer and (average) writer residing between Dublin and Amsterdam. Since graduating from the National College of Art and Design with a degree in visual communications in 2016, I’ve worked as an Art Director with Boys + Girls, BBDO and, most recently,  Bold Studios.
