Creative Impact Agency

More information on my involvement on these projects can be given upon request by emailing me at kelly.ohara8@gmail.com.

The work I have done for Creative Impact Agency has mainly consisted of award season campaigning for major studios such as 20th Century Fox, Disney, Netflix, Amazon, A24, and Paramount.  At this company I have been able to be apart of some amazing projects such as billboard and newspaper campaigns, specialty DVD packaging, and website takeovers. Seeing as how many of the projects were a group effort, and are confidential to academy voters, I am not able to display them on my personal website. But if you would like to see the type of work I do here, please check out the company website to see examples of our projects: www.cia-adv.com

 

Philadelphia Film Society

 

During my time at the Philadelphia Film Society, I designed posters, web and print advertisements, sponsorship letters, annual appeal letters, social media images, e-mail headers, flyers, and much more. My biggest project I got to work on, was the Signature Series program brochure, which goes out to 1,000+ people monthly.


In addition, I designed the Save the Date ads and programs for the annual Awards Night Party, which had over 350 guests in attendance. I worked closely with both the Marketing and Programming departments to come up with effective and aesthetically-pleasing designs for each project.

Philadelphia Film Festival

As the head graphic designer for the Philadelphia Film Society, I designed various advertisements for the 24th Philadelphia Film Festival, such as billboards, bus wraps, posters, banners, and newspaper and website ads. To do this I used the artwork that had been made by the previous designer for the program cover, and redesigned it to fit the advertisement's needs.

For the 25th festival, I collaborated with the Marketing and Artistic Directors to design both the Save the Date ads and a wall graphic in the lobby of the Prince Theater. The wall graphic features a glitter and film strip explosion, highlighting the festival’s momentous 25th year.

Aside from creating the image, I was an active participant in the direction of the photo shoot. I chose to keep the text design simple in order for it to stand out again the busy background.

 

Breaking Glass Pictures

For my co-op at Breaking Glass Pictures I designed the backs of several DVD covers for independent films such as the Geography Club, Buck Angel, and Anitsocial. I also created advertisements and informational signs for the films, and social media content. One of the advertisements I made for the film 7 Boxes was featured in the New York Times. I collaborated on a lot of these projects with the other designer at the company and together we created many pieces similar to the ones shown here.
