The SETU Year 4 design students have embraced their theme of ‘Is Folklore The Future?’ under the banner of ‘Design4Collaborations.’
Thus, reflecting the history of Waterford as Irelands oldest city to that of future design that is using new technology with awareness of sustainability, preservation of heritage and creativity.
The three panel members all alumni from SETU Waterford BA Design and the MA Heritage Management programme in Waterford are currently working as creatives in Waterford and share their experiences. Technology in design has evolved but when it touches the past to inform the future it creates new spaces that are virtual as well as physical.
Jonathan Power from Emagine will explore creative work that the design consultancy has been involved with. He will be explaining the challenges and how things are evolving in design beyond traditional spaces.
Ann Marie Deady working out of Boxworks as a graphic designer considers current trends in design. Her interest in creative practice across traditional print and virtual platforms explores the collaborations with target markets and clients.
While Aga Krym working as a visual artist considers the importance of the built environment with creative living moss murals in locations across the Waterford county. All consider sustainability and heritage with creative collaborations in Waterford for the future.
