RichardsDee & TDK

by Susannah & Dylan

We were delighted to host The Design Kids last night, where there were plenty of laughs, drinks and some of our designers spoke passionately about the great projects we have the opportunity to work on here at RichardsDee. The event was oversubscribed, people from a variety of different backgrounds came, and lots of new friends were made.

For the RD team, it was a great chance to showcase our new studio space smack bang in the middle of O’Connell Street, the heart of the city and right in the thick of things – keeping us fresh on all things Dublin.

We started at 6.30pm where our Creative Director and Co-Founder Simon Richards, brought the audience through RichardsDee history and how far we have come. From starting as a team of two in a small studio in Temple Bar right up to the present day with a team of 20 people over 4 floors on O’Connell Street.

Our designers Emily, Susannah, Mariana, Ryan, and Kyle then took to the floor to take us through some of their projects. They highlighted the research and strategy, design thinking and behind the scenes process that goes into each and every project to create meaningful change for all RD clients. Emily then went on to discuss our internship programme and Dylan and Susannah shared their own personal experiences and path from a graduate intern, through to a permanent member of staff on the design team.

We then opened the floor to Q&A where the attendees had the opportunity
to ask some of their burning questions… by the end, we even had some people wanting to switch career paths and others ready to make that leap!

After a brief studio tour finishing with sunset up on the rooftop terace, we moved on to Wigwam where the networking continued and conversations were flowing after a few more drinks.

We’d like to say a big thank you to all involved, our guests that came, and a special thanks to Zie Kirk and Jessie DeBoe – until next time Design Kids!
