We were tasked with the job of creating an identity for the 2018 Visual Communications Graduate Showcase, it was important to us that this identity acted as a reflection of our class as contemporary designers and that it did the work that we had all done over the last four years justice.

Entitled INCOMING, the identity proclaimed that we are 'incoming' to the working world of design. The outcome is loud, vibrant and sometimes erratic in an attempt to mimic the energy and enthusiasm of our class. We used this as an opportunity to further our involvement in the Irish design community and we were lucky enough to be able to use Pressio as our display typeface by the excellent Max Phillips of Signal Type Foundry and with an international outlook we used Work Sans as a secondary typeface by the equally great Wei Huang.

The system we created was seen across posters, super graphics, postcards, invitations, social media and on our website.
