Irish Design 2015 is the start of a job creation journey exploring, promoting and celebrating Irish design and designers through events and activities on the island of Ireland and internationally.
ID2015 aims to foster dialogue and collaboration. By encouraging investment in design as a key component of competitiveness and innovation, the overall objective of the initiative is to sustain and grow employment opportunities and sales and export potential for the Irish design sector into the future.
Design creates a better world. It can enhance our lives, our environment and our society. It shapes everything we see, use and experience and can change how we live, work and play. It can bring communities together and influence how we interact with each other. ID2015 explores the themes of Sense of place, Sustainability, Creativity and Well-being, as they relate to all parts of society.
