Design West are offering a unique opportunity to recharge and reconnect with the reasons we became creatives in the first place. Due to popular demand, they are now offering One Week packages for creatives working in Advertising and Design to attend the Design West Summer School at GMIT Letterfrack in Connemara, which takes place in June and July this summer.
