The annual snapshot of our evolving design landscape and the people who make it happen has gone live at the 100 Archive.
As one of those involved in selecting the 100, it’s an honour to see creative responses to briefs which impact on our existence in ways we may not always acknowledge or consider. From a stamp (Irish Women in Sport, Unthink) to a club night (Lumo, Bureau), a typeface (Field Gothic, Signal Type Foundry) to truffles (Harry’s Nut Butter Chocolate Truffles, Sarah Moloney), a poster (Outrage/Fishamble, Publicis) to a primary school mural and ‘sculpture-of-sorts’ (Holy Family National School, Rathcoole, Fuchsia MacAree), the Archive is there to inform, celebrate and maybe give you a steer on your future design needs and considerations.
The launch of the Archive also coincided with the launch of Design Declares Ireland! which will join our UK counterparts in their mission to ”reimagine the way we create every product, service, campaign and designed solution we put out into the world” as a means of addressing the current climate and ecological crisis.
