As you may be aware our President and Founder Joe Connolly sadly passed away on Monday evening. Those of you lucky enough to know Joe will understand what an instrumental part of the Institute he has been in shaping and guiding it to where we are today. As such we are closing our campus on Leeson Street on Thursday 2nd December for the entire day, as a mark of respect to a man who will be sadly missed.

It is with regret that we note the passing of the Institute's President and founder Joe Connolly. Joe started the Institute almost 30 years ago and was dedicated to education and creativity. At its beginning the Institute focused on Interior Design and later expanded to Graphic, Fashion and Web Design. He will be fondly remembered and missed by the team, his colleagues and friends at the Institute.

We offer condolences to his family at this time.

Showcase of Graduating Student Design Work

Students from the BA in Graphic Design, BA in Interior Design and Diploma in Fashion Design will showcase their work in the upcoming Grad Show CTRL+.

This showcase explores the creative pursuits of design students who lose and gain control, then master their discipline through iteration and experimentation. Visitors will experience a showcase of print and digital work that explores traditional graphic and communication design in response to solving societal, cultural and personal problems: a rigorous approach to designing spaces that complements life, well-being and flair in creating garments that explore visual languages, texture and line. All welcome, especially if you are an employer looking to source new design talent!
