2015 was a landmark year for Irish design. Throughout the year, Irish Design 2015 showcased over 2,000 designers at home and abroad to more than 1.4 million people, through over 600 projects.
A full closing report, Irish Design 2015 - Making Design Matter, detailing the activities and achievements of the year-long government-back initiative, is available to purchase online from Amazon.co.uk and Maven, as well as from the Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI) and the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI).
Michael D. Higgins, President of Ireland, is Patron of Irish Design 2015 and the initiative has been included in the Irish Government’s Action Plan for Jobs.
ID2015 is being convened by the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland, in collaboration with partner organisations on behalf of the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Enterprise Ireland.
Delivering the ID2015 programme would not be possible without the enthusiastic involvement and generous support of the design community, partners and sponsors, for which the ID2015 team is extremely grateful. ID2015 actively seeks partnership opportunities with suitable organisations. See the full list of partners here »
