Last week I was invited out to Dublin, Ireland, by Jameson to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (aka drink lots of whiskey) and more importantly meet some of the local designers out there.
Thanks to Greg and Russell from This Greedy Pig for taking us around the city and introducing us to illustrator Dermot Flynn, as well as designers Ronan and Peter of me&him&you. Thank you also to Jarrod from The Social House, and Jenny from Google, for taking us out of the city to see a bit more of Ireland!
More photos from me and my friend Jennifer Latour below!
Peter O’Gara and Ronan Dillon operate a little studio in Dublin called me&him&you and they’ve been producing a great series of screen prints. The series features three recognizable buildings, or monuments, and the drink of choice from cities all over the world. I was trying to convince them to do a Vancouver one but I wasn’t sure what our drink would be? I would have said a Caesar, but apparently that was invented in Calgary.
I had a great time in Dublin, even if it was quite short. I didn’t even get to visit all the free galleries in the city (thanks to @lucy_mckenna for the recommendations). I’ll have to return. If you’d like to point me to more creative talent from Ireland, or perhaps your opinion on the Vancouver drink of choice, let me know in the comments.
