Archive Selection 2017
2017's selection once again proves that Ireland can genuinely claim to be one of Europe's design capitols. Not one that borrows its cues from established hubs such as the UK, The Netherlands or Scandinavia, but one that has carved out its own identity within the European design landscape. There's a sophistication to ideation and warmth to craft and execution that I feel is unique to Irish design today.

    Archive Selection 2016 - 100 Archive
    Archive Selection 2016
    When we reflect back on the 100 Archive for each year I think it's as important for the selection to tell a story of where design was at in that particular year, but also what we were thinking as a society: what some of the themes and concerns were in business, in culture and in our day to day lives.

      Archive Selection 2015 - 100 Archive
      Archive Selection 2015
      As a nomadic creature, I often get asked the question, “Do you consider yourself an Irish designer?”. The answer, of course, is always a resounding yes. Irish design is unmistakable. Much like the Irish personality, it is infused with a distinct wit, personality and creativity that is entirely unique to our nation. It is no wonder that our small island continues to make waves across the globe in all types of design, animation and film. From exquisitely designed books to innovative digital platforms, this year’s 100 Archive selection represents the very best of Irish design. It demonstrates the vast and varied skills of Irish designers, both at home and abroad, and illustrates why our nation continues to shine so brightly on the international stage.

        Archive Selection 2014 - 100 Archive
        Archive Selection 2014
        The work has been selected for inclusion in the 100 Past for 2014 either because it demonstrates: a great idea, sophistication and excellence, an honesty of intent, great craft, a current trend or a mixture of these things. As is always the case, projects which were particularly strong were those in which the designer(s) were involved in all aspects of the project and there seems to be a greater degree of involvement in strategy and content generation as our profession matures and is understood by those who commission the work we produce.

          Archive Selection 2011 - 100 Archive
          Archive Selection 2011
          100 Archive proves, more than ever, that there is a vibrant, intelligent and talented design community in Ireland—which is no surprise really, but there has been a dearth of outlets and platforms to successfully promote this great work, at least from an overseas perspective

            Archive Selection 2010
            With 600+ entries the selection process was overwhelming at times but I have to say wow! It's pretty incredible when you see the broad scope of working going in Ireland –from signage to books to websites to identities. Impressive.

              Archive Selection 2012 - 100 Archive
              Archive Selection 2012
              The 100 archive is an important initiative for both past and future to acknowledge the significance of a design heritage in Ireland and certainly puts it respectably on the map. Particularly as it is so accessible, it's exciting to consider submissions from designers from varied stages in careers and studio backgrounds side by side…

                Archive Selection 2013
                From my perspective the diversity of challenges and opportunities facing client [commissioning design] is stunningly demonstrated through this body of excellently conceived, excellently executed and excellently presented work.
