28 October, 2011

IDI Awards 2011

Good News. The PIVOT Dublin team (Red&Grey Design, Emma Curley, Areaman Productions, Dr. Linda King and Dublin City Council) were awarded a Special Outstanding Contribution to Design in Ireland award last night by the Institute of Designers in Ireland. The IDI Awards each year celebrate the best of Irish design.

Thank you to the IDI and its members for the acknowledgement. Congratulations to Cape Town on winning the ICSID WDC 2014 designation. Now, let’s build on the success of Pivot Dublin in applying design thinking to the way we think, plan and act. Applied design thinking across everything we do can help make Dublin a more humane, attractive and competitive city.

The film responds to critical issues raised at 'Design at the Edges' in Taipei 2011 - our need for identity in an increasingly homogenised world, design resourcefulness and its capacity for positive social impact.
