Dublin Design Festival
31 Oct—10 Nov

This year, Dublin Design Festival is a 12 day festival of design, taking place right across the city. Operating as a collaborative and participative umbrella network, the festival brings together principal industry organisations along with key national and International participants. A dynamic programme of events, featuring The Future, with the future at its heart, includes exhibitions, conferences, live events and more, all celebrating and examining the many facets of design and its importance to business, culture and society.

We invite you to feed in, to contribute, to participate. We plan to build on this year’s activities, to broaden audiences and to establish a model that can be rolled out nationally with regional hubs.

We look forward to starting this conversation with you over the course of the festival.

ICADemy: Type

James Joyce Centre

Type is the first in a series of ICADemy design events that set out to explore through visual analogy, presentation and discussion the fundamental elements essential to the practice of graphic design.

ICADemy: Type speakers will include Mary Anne Bolger, Clare Bell, Max Philips, Scott Burnett and Séan Mongey, with contributions from Dr Jonathan C. Creasy, Eric Donovan, Stephen Kerr, Nenad Djordjevic and This is How we Fly.

The discipline of Type will be explored through three speaker presentations, asking What? Why? and How? Each speaker will give a presentation representing three unique aspects of the subject, these being Academics, Expertise and Philosophy, featuring approaches ranging from the practical to the more ethereal.

The evening will also include the presentation of four visual analogies, covering Skillset, Practice, Rhythm and Composition; as well as a panel discussion, audience participation, a display of examples of exemplary Type design from Irish designers, and live musical performances.

Ticket price includes Third Circle beer and James Joyce gin reception. Not to be missed.
