IDI has worked with the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland to produce a series of videos to promote design to young people and careers advisors as a viable career path. Launched at the Career Guidance Counsellor's Conference on April 17th, the 'Design Your Life' videos follow 5 designers through their education and decision making process to where they are working in industry today. As identified in the Expert Group for Future Skills Needs Report, Together for Design, we need to attract significant numbers into the design community if we are to meet the anticipated need by 2025.
We invite you to share the videos as widely as possible to encourage the talent of the future to choose design. Many thanks to all those designers who participated, and to Board Director Danielle Townsend for her involvement.
