OFFSET Dublin (Feb 17th-19th) is a little earlier than last year so hopefully we haven’t caught you all off guard as you tidy up your desks and settle down for another creative year ahead? Still can’t believe it’s been a year since Seb Lester’s incredibly moving finale but time stops for no one.
If you have been with us before you will hopefully agree it’s the perfect way to get your creative juices flowing, especially at the start of the year, with presentations, discussions, workshops and more on a range of topics and issues (not forgetting our legengary parties and Dublin’s great tapestry of pubs and restaurants to explore).
* We have just released an extra 200 EARLY BIRD TICKETS meaning you still have time to save between €35-€65! STUDENT & RECENT GRADUATE discounts still apply but there is limited availability at this stage.
* In other Ticket news we have launched DAY TICKETS. If you can’t make it for the whole weekend or just want to dip your toe in for the first time this could be the perfect way.
* We will have a full Main Stage Schedule next week so keep your eyes on our social media channels for info on that.
We are honored to announce the addition of Wolfgang Weingart, the legendary Graphic Designer & Typographer to the Dublin lineup. He is regarded as one of the most unconventional designers of the second half of the twentieth century. His view of typography, his experimental work and his unconventional teaching methods continue even today to shape visual design and training courses for young typographers all over the world. He will be conducting an on-stage interview with John Walters of Eye Magazine as well as a special Q&A on our second stage. This is not to be missed!
Terribly sad news of Ben Bos passing at the beginning of the year. He was a true gentleman and it was a huge honour to host him at Offset Dublin in 2013 and again only 2 months ago for Offset Sheffield as a very late replacement for Wolfgang Weingart. Always so generous with his time, passionate about design and humble about his incredible talent and it was our pleasure and honour to have had the opportunity to get to know him his wife Elly. What a legend. Condolences to Elly, his family and friends.
