This week, the 100 Archive announced their tenth annual selection of 100 projects that represent the best of Irish communication design in 2019.
Piquant is delighted to have two of our projects included among the incredible selection. This year, our work on the brand identity for Limerick festival Féile Na Gréine and the ‘Better Words’ publication for EVA International both made the selection.

The 100 Archive is a living archive that shows the breadth and quality of the Irish communication design industry, and its impact on culture, commerce and society in Ireland and beyond. For the tenth annual selection, the panel judged 370 projects from 119 designers and studios, and created a selection which presents a more diverse range of projects than ever before.

Conor Buckley, Artistic Director, says “we are really proud of our team for this achievement.”

“There is an incredible wealth of talent and creativity in design in Ireland right now and Piquant is thrilled to have two recent projects selected for this year’s 100 Archive.”

Better Words, a hardback book by EVA International, offers an introduction to contemporary art and culture through the eyes of 8–12 year olds. Piquant Designer, Victoria Brunetta, collaborated with EVA to design and illustrate the book which features new artistic terms, words and word-forms, describing many aspects of contemporary art practice and its response to social and political issues in today’s world.

Féile Na Gréine is a music festival that takes place in Limerick city. The festival takes the form of a music trail across the city and showcases the best in emerging and left-field Irish music. The festival connects audiences with unconventional artists in an inclusive and celebratory environment. Piquant designer, Hugh Heffernan, created a festival brand identity that would resonate strongly in the social media space, creating a series of photorealistic 3d animations to visually represent the eclectic and divergent music from the festival.
