“Embrace the fact that you can design anything…rocket science? Yeah, that’s my speciality!
This was just one inspiring statement taken from a weekend full of entertainment and insight. An impressive line up of creatives from all over the world gathered in Dublin at this year’s OFFSET 2012 Creative Festival. Seasoned speakers such as Micheal Beirut, Stefan Sagmeister and Erik Kessels took to the stage as did uber talented artists and illustrators such as Conor Harrington, Von and Jessica Hische. They all shared their individual stories and experiences but their collective voices echoed passion, determination and commitment to a vision.

The weekend was also an opportunity to engage with fellow and like minded creatives from all disciplines. Although OFFSET’s speakers were primarily in the realm of visual communication in the traditional sense, there was enough diversity to fuel any creative mind. Perhaps next year we can add industrial design to the mix!

Thank you to the organisers, three young Dublin creatives Bren Byrne, Peter O’Dwyer and Richard Seabrooke, for a phenomenal weekend.

Attended by DP’s Cormac, John and Carleen.
