“No, something modern but classic, un-specific and generic, but utterly Dublin, but not stocky.”
– Eh, okay…
Nothing better than getting a contradictory brief, to leave you scratching your head. But these are the impossible conversations I enjoy.
Dublin has changed inordinately over the last 16 years, with half of Dublin 2 being renovated to high spec offices to accommodate the bean bag generation of highly skilled workers, and the other half same as it ever was. So the classic Dublin look and the new urban aesthetic clash, huddle and hug to varying degrees of success across the capital. And Dubliners and Dublin business owners want to reflect and epitomise our new Dublin, without getting ahead of ourselves. Hence the contradiction I suppose.
