Coming off wins at the prestigious Davey Awards and the 44th Annual Creativity International Print & Packaging Design Awards, Ciara McAvoy was elated to have her illustrations lauded again. “The Communicator Awards are like the Oscar awards for illustrators and are held in high regard in this field, so it is amazing to have my work recognized,” McAvoy explained.
Her immediate projects include three character posters, in addition to a promotional poster, for “Enemy of Man”, directed by Irish Film and Television Awards nominee Vincent Regan, and starring BAFTA Awards nominee Sean Bean, three-time MTV Movie Awards nominee Rupert Grint, Primetime Emmy Award nominee Charles Dance, and James D’Arcy. McAvoy, who is also a producer, added, “it’s a passion project versus an assignment. This movie will be for sure a brilliant adaptation of the Scottish play ‘Macbeth”.
