Offset Dublin 2019
Another great year kicked off at Offset Dublin this year with some brilliant and inspiring speakers!
The highlight for me was the work of talented Cuban-American illustrator Edel Rodriguez. His work highlights the challenges America are facing with their current president Trump, in a humorous and often simple manner which hits the nail on the head in communicating it’s message.
I also found Dublin photographer Richard Gilligan’s work and the story of his journey to success very inspiring. He followed his passion which lead him to his current success, by mixing his two loves – skateboarding and photography; capturing his subjects in skateparks around the world to create unique results.
Other highlights were Steve Simpson’s beautiful illustrative packaging work and Anna Ginsburg’s illustrative films which challenge feminist subject matter – she is a very confident, bubbly speaker and kept everyone hooked on what she had to say.
This year the event was held at the Point Village, which didn’t quite live up to the previous venue of the Grand Canal Theatre, but hopefully it will be moved back there next year.
All in all, it was a great top up of inspiration from the international design leaders speaking and as always, it was enjoyable meeting and exchanging ideas with fellow creatives.
