Katie Quinn Davies signs to Assembly

We are so proud to announce Katie Quinn Davies as the new addition to the Assembly team. We have admired Katie’s work for a long time and are absolutely delighted to add her to our roster.

Having originally trained as a graphic designer Katie Quinn Davies spent over twelve years working as an art director and designer for leading design studios in Europe, the U.S. and Australia. In 2009, Katie re-focused her career towards photography and spent the next 8 years in Sydney where she worked as a freelance commercial photographer specialising in food, lifestyle, interiors and travel. After a number of trips back to Europe over the past two years for work including the 2015 Sainsbury’s UK Christmas Food print and advertising campaign, Katie made the decision to move home to Dublin in June 2017 to continue her career in Ireland, Europe and the US.

Katie brings an organic quality to her photographic work opting to present food and subjects in a relaxed and candid state. It is this style, which Martha Stewart Living described as “tactile, real and honest”, which Katie has become internationally known for.

Sammy Khalid and the Irish Examiner

We love this piece Sammy Khalid did for the Irish Examiner farming pull out. The brief was from Chemistry advertising agency and it’s aim was to address “What’s keeping Farmers awake at night?” Sammy illustrated the sheep queuing up and jumping over the headboard of a bed in a field, reflecting the endless list of worries that keep Irish farmers awake at night.

Josh Dawson’s new ad for ACV

We love Josh’s new dummy commercial for ACV. Originally for the German market, we have the dubbed version above. The making of is a great watch too, here is a link https://vimeo.com/224394589. We asked Josh to tell us about the process and he said “I was lucky enough to write the script with the creatives which is a luxury these days. My main actor was working as the casting director, I threw him I front of camera and he was perfect. Don Don (3D house) went above and beyond with the project, only having 6 weeks to turn it around. My editor was working around the clock too. Great team, we’re delighted with the result.”
