Irish Design 2015’s Global Irish Design Challenge is now open for submissions. Entrants are invited to submit a product, project or concept that has the potential to revolutionise the way we live. The aim is to showcase innovative Irish design solutions to current and future global challenges while connecting a global network of Irish design talent.
The Global Irish Design Challenge is free to enter and is open to professional designers and design companies as well as students of every discipline including architects, furniture designers, animators, service designers, design engineers, fashion and textile designers, product designers, graphic and web designers etc. The Challenge accepts new, existing and speculative work, so entrants are welcome to submit a project that they are currently working on, a great idea that they’ve had hiding in their desk, or something that has already changed the world and made them famous.
Irish Design 2015 are delighted to have assembled a distinguished jury panel of internationally influential design experts, including Jay Osgerby, who was awarded an OBE in 2013 for his services to the design industry, and veteran Japanese designer Hideichi Misono, former chief designer for Toyota.
