Proving good design transcends disciplines

Proving good design transcends disciplines

The annual IDI Awards have fast become one of the highlights of the design calendar year. And 2017's event lived up to all expectations. Held in Temple Bar's Meeting House Square, it was a spectacle of ingenuity, creativity and design prowess. 

Dolmen, celebrating 25 years in business, won an award in a category which stretched its expertise: a Commendation for Best Structures and Spaces for the "Dolmen 25" week long event, which showcased highlights of our design work over the last quarter of a century. This accolade added to the 5 International Red Dot Awards received in Germany in July makes it a pretty good year for us!

We are always pushing the boundaries of design thinking and innovation, working with both large multinationals and SMEs to create novel, differentiated products and experiences for our clients. As Ireland's leading design consultancy, we strive to build award winning  brand focused designs in all corners of industry.
