Offset Dublin Creativity can impact social and economic enterprise
With over 2,500 attendees each year, Offset has fast become one of the world’s most inspirational, educational and vocational conferences for the design and creative industries.
As an agency we have driven the concept, curation, promotion, and production of this event over a 12 year period to its position as a fixture on the global design calendar. We want to share our passion for the impact creativity can have on cultural, social and economic enterprise. Everything from the naming, branding, industry outreach, partnership strategy and activation, web and social strategy, the curation of the speakers, the design – both graphic and motion, the staging to the weeklong festival that brings the creative side of Dublin alive for a week is done by our in-house team. All pre-event promotion and post-event collection of collateral is also done in-house.
This successful programme of hosted talks, seminars, workshops, events, product demos and activations has reached live audiences of over 40,000 people from around the world and millions online.
It has also offered an opportunity for brand building and recruitment for partners such as Facebook, Twitter and IBM. As well as getting investment and support from Failte Ireland, DCC, Local Enterprise Office and Creative Ireland.
“OFFSET’s clear creative vision is at such a high level that our partnership is a privilege and the support and enthusiasm for our creatives and the creative contribution of Facebook Art Department is really important to us. The ethos OFFSET holds sets it apart from many other similar events.”
Jospehine Kelliher. Manager EMEA & APAC, Facebook Art Department.
