The Institute of Designers Ireland launched the online platform ‘Why Design’ on Thursday 8th March at the Greenway Building in Stephens Green, Dublin.

Hosted by the Institute of Designers Ireland (IDI), the initiative highlighted the gender imbalance in the Irish creative sector.

WhyDesign.ie is a platform aimed at second level female students, their parents, teachers and guidance counsellors. A large element of the project will communicate what Design actually is.

Chupi Sweetman, Emma Manley, Lesley Tully and Roisin Lafferty are some of the practicing female designers showcased.

Speaking about the platform, Kim Mackenzie-Doyle, President of IDI, said: “The platform will provide a national overview of creative courses and colleges all in one site. Why Design will reflect the 25:75 imbalance in our industry and will, in time, showcase male designers in overtly female heavy design disciplines. Balance works both ways.”
