CIT hosts Graduate Design Awards Exhibitions and Awards

Published on: Thursday, 08 November 2012

CIT is hosting the 2012 National Institute of Designers in Ireland Graduate Design Awards Exhibition and Gala Awards Show during Design Week (November 5th to 9th) at Nexus Student Centre on CIT’s Bishopstown Campus.

Design Week is a user-contributed festival focusing on design. The idea is a simple one. The Design Week committee works with design organisations, collectives, colleges, companies and studios to package and promote design related events taking place on the island of Ireland. There are walks, talks, launches, exhibitions, and workshops.

The audience includes the designers who design things, the business community who purchase design services and most importantly, the public who are the end users of all designers’ services.

This is an opportunity to see the work of Ireland's best young design graduates. Disciplines such as craft design, furniture, fashion & textiles, digital media, visual communications, motion graphics & production design, and product design are all featured.

The exhibition will feature young and upcoming, designers such as Orla Reynolds who has featured on ‘Saturday night with Miriam’ and has been acclaimed in the international design press. Local talent includes Bandon native and CIT's first interior architecture graduate to show, Sinead Crowley, who is amongst 22 designers competing for the coveted Institute of Designers overall category awards and Graduate Grand Prix.
