    09-11 March 2012, Dublin, Ireland
  • This year I spoke at the amazing OFFSET2012. I wanted to use this project to archive my experiences of what turned out to be the best OFFSET to date... how will they top this next year? (...because they surely will) 

    is run by Peter O’Dwyer, Bren Byrne and Richard Seabrooke (all creatives living and working in Dublin) it has become Dublin’s premier creative festival attracting speakers and visitors from all over the world. In the 3 years since inception OFFSET has produced over 150 hours of presentations, workshops, debates, interviews and Q&A’s with some of the leading creatives in the world, several large scale gallery shows and some proper full-on party nights.

    The international line-up of speakers included Rinzen, Friends With You, Paula Scher, Michael Beirut, Seymour Chwast, Shepard Fairey, and Stefan Sagmeister... and me:)
