The 100 Archive is a platform for design in Ireland, founded in 2012 by the communication design community. At the core of our activity is the publication of 100 notable projects selected through an annual open call. These yearly archives contain work from the ever broadening area of communication design (graphic, editorial, type, brand, digital, motion…) across a range of applications: from flyers for a club night to international corporate rebrands and from identities for small businesses to campaigns for major social movements.

As well as capturing contemporary communication design, we publish articles, produce events and deliver projects that interrogate design’s impact on the world and look at where design in Ireland is now in order to establish where it’s going in the future. We partner with designers, professional bodies, government agencies and national institutions to reinforce the importance of design in life, society, commerce and culture and to build engaged audiences for design in Ireland.


Whether you’d like to learn more about the 100 Archive, want us to publish your article or want to host an event together, please get in touch. We are always open to new ideas, new opportunities and new collaborators.
