VC2017 presents Imbibe, an accompanying publication to the
Visual Communication Graduate Show 2017. Imbibe focuses
on the relationship between the pub and designers, especially
that between the National College of Art and Design graduating
class of 2017 and the pubs surrounding the college in Dublin 8.
During the week of the Graduate Show, Imbibe hosted its launch
in the form of a design-themed pub quiz. Design students and
professionals were invited to engage in a celebration of design
and conversation in the welcoming setting of the Jug—a pub on
Francis Street, Dublin 8 which was frequented by the students.
A number of design studios from Dublin competed amongst the
Visual Communication class, using the allocated pages of Imbibe
to write their answers.
A golden pint glass was awarded to the winning team, and after
the quiz ended, design continued to be discussed as friendships
were formed and the conversation flowed until the pub closed
its doors for the night.
