I view design as an approach to creating better futures through three different dimensions: to better understand problems and opportunities from a human perspective; to expand the range of ideas available for decision-makers, and; to shape, test and refine potential solutions with the users, customers and citizens they are intended for.

You can escape art, but you can never escape design

Tim Marlowe

Irish Design Week provides a national and international platform for Irish designers to showcase the rich heritage of innovation and creativity that we as a nation are so proud of. This year’s theme shines a light on the importance of storytelling in the design sector. I would like to take the opportunity to thank Design & Crafts Council Ireland for the hard work on bringing to life this wonderful celebration of design.
