THE LINE UP


Portrait of Giovana Mederios

Giovana Medeiros (Illustrator)

Giovana is a freelance illustrator, born in Brazil, and based in Lisbon. She graduated in Fashion Design at her hometown and worked designing prints for textiles for a few years. After graduating in college, she moved to Dublin, where she studied Illustration at BCFE , and has been working as a freelance Illustrator ever since. Her work is inspired by nature, the feminine, kids, fantastical stories and the day-to-day life. Working with flat shapes, bold colours and heavily painterly textures, her illustrations have been applied to a series of different mediums such as books, advertising, magazines, textiles, games, greeting cards. Some of her past clients include Chronicle Books, Harper & Collins, Cottage Press, Zara, Oxford University Press, Auzou Editions, Hallmark, American Greetings, Bloomsbury. In her free time she creates auto-biographical comics, drinks coffee and travels.

A former novelist and toy designer, he now makes useful, attractive things for clients like An Post, Bewley's, CBS, Christie’s, Citi, FAO Schwarz, and Trinity College Dublin, and collaborates with studios and agencies in Ireland and abroad.

Portrait of Grace Hughes

Grace Hughes (Fjord)

Grace is Senior Content Designer for Fjord at The Dock, Accenture’s R&D hub. She works in that beautiful, messy intersection of people, language and technology. She has a background in the Humanities, Journalism, and more recently content strategy and creation. She also lectures in copy and content at the Technological University for Dublin. She’s passionate about a human-centred approach to language, and the role of content at the heart of the design process. At The Dock, she’s leading a growing team exploring new areas like conversational design, and the impact of emerging technology on language and behaviour.



Portrait of Tom Cunningham

Tom Cunningham (Opacity Podcast)

Tom is a Senior Product Designer, Dad and co-host of the ‘Opacity’ podcast, which aims to demystify career paths and show the human side of working in design.

Stories help us make sense of complex and abstract concepts. The stories of others can inspire us to action and guide us through the fuzzy haze of our careers and life in general.

In Tom's talk he will share insights from the inspiring people he's met throughout his career and through conversations over the mic.
