TU Dublin Student Competition

TU Dublin's School of Creative Arts ran a competition involving students to create a Luas campaign to raise awareness of William Rowan Hamilton.

The William Rowan Hamilton Commission design project was a collaboration between the RIA and students and staff on the BA Visual Communication at TU Dublin School of Creative Arts. Recent Visual Communication graduate, Lily Gaertner drew from our rich local heritage of scientific discovery at Dunsink and Broombridge to produce a set of illustrations for a poster and digital campaign to promote the legacy of Irish mathematician William Rowan Hamilton and its impact on current technological innovation. The poster headline was generated by current final year Visual Communication student, Jake Skelly.

The TU Dublin School of Creative Arts is a university school of art and design based on a new city centre campus in Grangegorman. Our key values are excellence in scholarly activity through creative practice and research combined with a student-centred learning environment encouraging creativity, flexibility and innovation. Engagement with the real world is central to our school and we have a significant track record in delivering programmes with a strong industry, professional and community focus.
