YDA JURY 2020: Eve Ashwell

Eve Ashwell
Senior Editor/Partner
The Assembly Rooms
London, UK

Eve Ashwell came to the world of editing at the age of 18. Her editing career had a rapid trajectory and in 2010 she became a Partner at Cut+Run, becoming one of the youngest and most acclaimed editors in the industry.

In 2015 Eve joined The Assembly Rooms as a Company Owner and Editor. She has a pivotal role in the evolution of the London office and in the last 5 years both Eve’s and The Assembly Rooms’ profiles have expanded into the U.S. where Eve had already spent time working on campaigns for clients such as Wrigley’s, VW, Facebook, Coca Cola and Travellers.

Eve edits a wide variety of work, but is best known for her emotional storytelling. Her collaborations with directors Pete Riski, Daniel Kleinman, Charlie Crane, ThirtyTwo, Andy McLeod, DARYL and Stella Scott amongst others, have been recognized internationally with lovely shiny metal coming in from AICE, APA, Cannes Lions, BTA, D+AD and many others.

As a Senior Editor and Company Owner, Eve is passionate about the development and mentoring of assistants and young editors within The Assembly Rooms. Alongside her partners, the company is committed to providing equal opportunities for men and women – the 50/50 gender split within their company is testament to that.
