Crafts Council of Ireland

The Craft Market Report

Commissioned by the Crafts Council of Ireland, the Craft Market Report brought together research into trends influencing the Irish craft industry.

Produced shortly after the Irish Craft Industry Report, this 60-page report was designed to sit comfortably with it on the shelf. By using a similar graphic device, a panel of eight circular shapes, this report could be easily identified as coming from the same source as its sister report. On the cover, the panel features images chosen to complement the copper colour background interspersed with shapes in a tint of the background colour. This device is used throughout the inner pages: as a graphic element on section dividers in the two-colour front section; and, in a five-colour four-page section at the back of the report, to feature more images of Irish craft.

The second of two reports designed for the Crafts Council of Ireland, this is one of the earlier design projects undertaken but still a firm favourite. It proves how timeless and lasting good design can be.
