Design West is an international summer design school located in the beautiful village of Letterfrack in Connemara, on the West Coast of Ireland. For two weeks this summer (June 22nd to July 5th 2019) participants will get the opportunity to work with leading international designers from renowned studios across the globe. Unplugging from their hectic everyday working lives—commuting, cell phones, deadlines, media saturation—participants will immerse themselves in the wild and rugged Connemara landscape and use it both as a mode of research and as a source of inspiration.
Design West welcome post-graduate students and professionals from all over the world. They value cultural diversity as well as the diverse talent and perspective each participant will bring. The programme will be conducted in English and collaboration across the following disciplines will be encouraged: typography (2D and 3D), graphic design, image making, the writing and the making of books and journals. The final deadline for applications is Friday 10 May 2019.
