OFFSET Dublin 2019 is coming soon

OFFSET Dublin's 2019 is nearly upon us, and this year looks set to be better than ever, as the creative conference celebrates its 10th anniversary. 

The conference takes place 5-7 April at The Point Square, Dublin, and early bird tickets are still on sale – buy your tickets to OFFSET here (opens in new tab)

But what can you expect from this year's extravaganza? Which big speakers are coming to the event? And what else can you look out for? Here are three things we're looking forward to at OFFSET Dublin 2019...

01. Inspiring speakers

Ariane Spanier is known for her innovative use of type and texture

OFFSET is known for curating stellar line-ups from across the creative industries, and this year is no exception. There are too many cool speakers to mention here, and more are still to be announced, but we're particularly looking forward to seeing design legend Lance Wyman, type genius Ariane Spanier and advertising gurus Alexander Nowak and Felix Richter of DROGA5. Other big names include Edel Rodriguez (opens in new tab), Yumi Suzaki of Pentagram and James Victore.

OFFSITE often involves speakers doing workshops. Fingers crossed that Lance Wyman, who created Mexico's Olympic 1968 logo, will be running one this year

OFFSET's fringe festival, OFFSITE, is also worth checking out. Details of this year's events have yet to be announced, but last year saw workshops, exhibitions and panel talks take place across the city in the days around the festival. These events are often when you can get up close and personal with your heroes, as well as swap tips and tricks with other OFFSET attendees, so stay tuned for more details.

03. Creative community

OFFSET directors Lisa Haran and Bren Byrne have recently been awarded the IDI President's Award for Outstanding Contribution to Design at the 2019 Irish Design Awards, and their commitment to the creative community shows at OFFSET. The creative buzz around the event, and Dublin's general fun atmosphere means your time at OFFSET is bound to be exciting, inspiring and sociable. Buy your tickets for OFFSET here (opens in new tab).
