Last weekend we were honoured to be invited to speak at Dublin’s OFFSET festival; a three-day feast of creative insight and inspiration. More than 2,000 people flocked to the Irish capital for talks, panel discussions and live interviews and it was amazing to be part of a line-up that included the likes of Jessica Walsh, Marian Bantjes, Marina Willer, Richard Turley, Mike Perry, Richard Mosse and Jon Burgerman.
The OFFSET team manage to strike the perfect balance between seriously talented creatives like those mentioned above and a warm, laid-back and collaborative atmosphere which is a special thing to be a part of. It was great to meet so many people and a big thanks to everyone who came to our talk on Saturday!
There’s plenty of good in-depth coverage around by the likes of Creative Review and Creative Bloq but here’s just a few examples of the work shown on stage that tickled our fancy, and look out for dedicated posts on a couple of the speakers coming up tomorrow…
