The Fresh Talent Exhibition For Irish Design 2015 Kicks Off Today

Mmm, love that smell of fresh talent!


Here's one for all you design enthusiasts: Fresh Talent is kicking off this weekend at ID2015 Design Hub in Dublin Castle.

The exhibition aims to give the spotlight to emerging Irish designers who have graduated in the past three years.


Curator Angela o'Kelly said of the event: “It is so important that young emerging designers and practitioners are able to work across disciplines, rather than just in linear subject areas. This enables real sustainable career opportunities. The new creatives shown here in Fresh Talent are pushing boundaries, focusing on user first designs and working across disciplines. Nothing is a challenge, it’s a very exciting time for design in Ireland!”

Among the featured works at Fresh Talent are a wide array of pieces by Dublin-based designers Cian Corcoran and Ahmad Fakhry of Designgoat, collections from fashion designer Richard Malone and designs from up-and-coming studio, Gazel.


The exhibition has no shortage of goings on for all ages, with tours starting at 3pm daily where gallery mediators guide visitors through some of their favourite works. There is a host of lectures and workshops to choose from, such as the Mini Makers children's workshops, experimental design sessions for dabblers, the Festival of Curiosity's panel discussion on the future of design, and even LEGO design tutorials. Yes, you read that correctly - LEGO!

You can find the exhibition at the ID2015 Design Hub at Dublin Castle from today until September 20 and we can't wait to check it out! For full details of the exhibition, visit Irish Design.
