One of the main aims of this self initiated project was to create a platform for designers to promote themselves. I invited my college classmates to revisit our first ever design brief*, assigned to us in Sept/Oct 2002. The exhibition ran in November 2010 in Film Base, Temple Bar, Dublin for 3 days and in January 2011 in Wandesford Quay Gallery, Cork for one week. Some exhibitors sold their work. The benefits for me were: project management, time management, budgeting, design, delegation and dealing with external challenges such as venues and printers.
*The Black Squares Problem: Digging deeper into the realm of abstraction, try to communicate one of the following words: BOLD, CONGESTED, INCREASE or PLAYFUL through the arrangement of no more and no less than four black squares on one A1 poster. 14 designers, including myself took part.
