The World Design Capital is a city promotion project established to celebrate the aims and accomplishments of cities using design as a tool to reinvent themselves socially, culturally and economically. PIVOT Dublin was Dublin’s bid to become World Design Capital in 2014. Our brief was to develop a theme/strategy, collate all content and produce a coherent bid document around forty four set questions. Our bid comprised of research, writing and design that focused on; Why Dublin? Why Now? Why PIVOT?
