We're moving permanently to Facebook.

This will be our last post here on the blog - thanks for looking in on us over the last three and a half years. We've decided to move our posting to Facebook on a permanent basis purely because of it's reach. If you're still interested in following what we get up to on a yearly basis, the address is http://www.facebook.com/DesignAtAIT. We'll still leave the blog in place as a digital archive.

‘Best In Show’ at the Digital Hub 2011

We’ve just been informed that four of our graduates have been nominated in two categories for this year’s awards: Keith Bogan in the Digital Media category (no surprise there!), and Carole Fannon, Ciaron Fitzpatrick and George Beattie in the Visual Communications category. We’re obviously delighted for all of them, and look forward to the results being announced in mid-September.

Paul Timoney has worked with us on the ‘Performing the Painting’ Image Making project, and a couple of other bits and pieces, over the last couple of years and has just launched this digital book entitled ‘The Teller’s Tale’. It, and he, are really very good. Go to www.timostales.com for more information, and frankly, it’s a steal for €10.

Past Graduate Profiles, Round Two.

You might remember that about a year and a half ago, we put out the call for past graduates to contact us if they would like a post on the blog about what they’ve been doing since leaving college - where they’ve worked, how life has been for them as designers, where they completed their further education and in particular, what their work is like now. We do this for the benefit of our current cohort of students as a way of showing them what life as a designer can be like.

If any of you would be interested in partaking again, or for the first time, and aren’t shy about showing the world what you’ve been up to, or aren’t too put off at the thoughts of showing your roots, please contact me by email: eryan@ait.ie, and we’ll start talking from there. Take a look at the older posts on the blog - Past Graduate Profiles - for an idea on how to go about it.
