And so ends another year and in our case 10 years! Here’s a few highlights from the first decade of Assembly. Thank you to our amazing team; the directors, illustrators, photographers and composers and huge thanks to our wonderful crew, agencies and clients. It’s been the biggest pleasure working with you all. Excited to see what the next decade of business brings.
Following on from the storyboards yesterday, here’s Elle Brooks-Tao’s director’s cut for AIB. We loved making this ad, it took us on a very fun (and sometimes very cringy) trip down memory lane. Thinking back about what we were like in our 20s and 30s, the clothes and make up we wore, life with and without kids and where we are now!
A few weeks ago we launched our ad for AIB directed by Elle Brooks-Tao. Elle’s director’s cut is coming out tomorrow so in advance of that we’re sharing the storyboards for you to get a peak of how she visualises the ad before we shoot. The boards were beautifully illustrated by our storyboard artist Michaelia Wu.
New work from Eoin Holland for Guinness. We loved working with the team in Taylor on this one. Shot in The Guinness Storehouse and at the Notre Dame v Navy game in the Aviva with the legendary Joe Montana.

All new signings are exciting, there’s a creative connection and excitement about future collaborations together. However, this particular signing holds an extra level of excitement because our connection with Clare Wilkinson goes back three decades, and the chance to join forces and collaborate together makes us very happy!! Some more about Clare…. Clare Wilkinson is an experienced photographer with a passion for food. She has created photography for food businesses, supermarkets, cookbooks and more. Specialising in still life, lifestyle and food projects, her creative and extensive knowledge in all things food means that she has an incredible attention to detail, ensuring she leaves no crumb left unturned. Clare trained at Ballymaloe Cookery School and has also worked as a food stylist on many advertising campaigns which means she is well equipped with the knowledge in food to help clients with problem solving and providing creative solutions to further their vision. Clare also set up Ireland’s first purposely built kitchen studio space to hire. This ideal creative environment works perfectly for a variety of jobs. The spacious studios with two fully equipped kitchens, beautiful natural light and in a prime location in the heart of Dublin city is a great place to bring creative projects to life.
Lovely new work from Eoin Holland for West Cork Distillers!
