Why Design is IDI's gender balance initiative for the Irish Design Sector.
IDI Feed, the new name for Bread and Butter, brings practising designers from across the spectrum of design activity together to share their work and processes over drinks. With each event, speakers discuss what they do in the creative arena to earn a crust, giving their own unique take on what inspires and drives them and what creativity means to them.
