Insectarium

Insectarium is an all insect museum devoted to the curation, study and display of live and mounted Irish insects. Insects are an integral part of Ireland’s ecosystem, with 11,422 species accounted for to date, yet we know very little about them. The Insectarium is a fun way of educating adults and children. The Insectarium brand is implemented across different applications; identity design, spatial design, print design, motion graphics and a website which acts as a further educational resource for children. Illustration is used as the primary output to engage children and make them dive into the world of creepy crawlies.

This project was my graduate project from IADT Dún Laoghaire and was showcased at the 2015 Graduate Exhibition, Future Proofed. This project was awarded with The Grand Prix at the 2015 Institute of Designers in Ireland Graduate Design Awards after coming first in the Visual Communication category.
