Irish Design 2015 - Making Design Matter

Irish Design 2015 - Making Design Matter


Irish Design 2015 – Making Design Matter offers a comprehensive examination of the year of Irish design, a major government backed initiative that explored, promoted and celebrated Irish design through events and activities on the island of Ireland and in renowned international capitals of design and commerce. 

ID2015 was pioneering in its target-focused approach to making design matter, with the result that this is the first ever quantitative analysis of the impact of design activity mounted on this scale. 

Irish Design 2015 – Making Design Matter is an invaluable tool and reference for designers, educators, policy-makers and entrepreneurs, acting as an authoritative record of the activities and achievements of, and participants in, a truly significant moment for Irish design.  Through a series of essays by key participants in the initiative, spotlight reports on the different projects mounted throughout the year, and group discussions featuring leading Irish and international figures from the sector, Making Design Matter captures the why and the how of the landmark initiative that was Irish Design 2015 (ID2015).
