National recognition for local graphic design studios

Maria Pepper

Two Wexford graphic design studios have had works selected for an annual archive of the best 100 examples of Irish contemporary communication.

The 100 Archive for 2018 has included pieces by Wexford-based designers Brian Byrne and Rosanne Lancaster in this year's selection which showcases the best in Irish graphic design.

Crossabeg-based designer Brian has had his work on Autobuy, the online platform for Mooney's Garage, featured in the 2018 selection.

Young designer Rosanne Lancaster from Craanford, near Gorey, who recently set up her own practice in North Wexford, was selected for the first time with an identity for BlueZone Fitness.

Founded by a group of design studios, 100 Archive has created archive selections since 2010, showcasing the best in Irish graphic design, digital design, design for print, branding, wayfinding, motion design and typography.

The 100 Archive for 2018 features iconic graphics such as the Together For Yes campaign, and diverse work from the microscopic detail on Irish postage stamps to large supergraphics which were displayed at the Venice Biennale.

This year's application process, judged by a panel of Irish and international design experts, saw a record number of 414 individual submissions from Irish designers and studios based all over Ireland as well as abroad in cities such as New York, London, Oslo and Amsterdam.

The 2018 selection can be viewed on 100archive.com.
