“There are too many people under the cosh in this city” – Greg Spring, Co-founder at Hen’s Teeth


Your creative highlight of 2018?

There were lots. Bury Me With the Lo On with Thirstin Howl the III & Tom Gould was a very good time. Kicking things off in the new space with Braulio Amado was pretty amazing too.


Braulio is our favourite designer on the planet right now, so it set the tone for the new space nicely. Our Annie Atkins Christmas window too, which we don’t really want to replace in January.

But I’d say the highlight was our Egle Zvirblyte island wide exhibition at Drop Everything back in May. Drop Everything is something very special, so it was amazing to get a chance to play a small part in making it so.


Your personal creative goal for 2019?

To do our first big international exhibition.


You get to redesign or reimagine Dublin in one way, what would you do?

A dedicated network of bike roads like the The Hovenring in Eindhoven. Build that shit in the sky so we can buzz around the city in peace.


How would you describe the Dublin of your dreams, in 18 words or less?

A Dublin that looks after it’s people a little better. There are too many people under the cosh in this city.
