IDI Awards 2023

Unfortunately, we didn't take home an award this year despite being shortlisted in three separate categories, but a huge thank you to the IDI organising committee for a great night at the RDS catching up with friends, and making new acquaintances.

The Design for Good Category was won by the especially impressive Fair Seas project by Lands, Wexford.

Congratulations to all the winners.

How we think

Ground-breaking product design rarely requires ground-breaking processes.

Mostly it just takes a more intelligent approach. A simpler way forward. One that starts by asking better questions.

An answer to a question no-one thought worth asking, because no-one could foresee a possible answer.

That's our job.

How we do

Better answers start by asking better questions

We ask.
We explore and refine.
We downselect.
We prototype and test.

We answer.
We design in detail.
We prep for production.
We handover.
