Ireland a graphic design infant, excited and enthusiastic but lacking the stature of accomplished talent that can write, teach and run a commercial practice that can be internationally acclaimed.
Well our time has come as one of our own, an old college classmate has just become the first Irish Designer to be elected to the AGI (Alliance Graphique Internationale), David Smith of Atelier has taken a giant leap into the world of international design and now sits with legendary international designers such as Dunbar, Bilak, Niemann, Brockman, Sagmeister and many, many more. David will now take on the role as ambassador to increase an awareness of AGI and its aspirations in Ireland. Well done Dave, I am sincerely proud.
Here is a video of David’s work as presented at this year’s Offset conference.
