Designing the World: Insights from Mary Ann Bolger

The wonderful Mary Ann Bolger’s presentation brought us through the important role of a designer in shaping the world around us.

She is head of Media Arts at the School of Media at TU Dublin, and was previously lecturer in design history and visual culture in the School of Art & Design. Mary Ann has served on the Professional Panel of the 100Archive and is a judge on both Professional and Graduate IDI Awards. She represented Ireland as ATypI country delegate from 2005 to 2022. With Clare Bell, Mary Ann programmes the GradCAM research group Typography Ireland.
