Calling All Designers, Crafters, and Makers…

Here at Fund it we believe in great design, which is why we’ve teamed up with House and Home and the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI) to celebrate just that.  We want to help you bring that ideal product to market, and shine a light on beautiful design in the everyday.

If you’re a fan of excellent design for the home, you’ve experienced the ‘Aha!’ moment. It’s that little glimpse of joy you feel when you handle a product that makes a task you thought was already simple, even simpler. Either that, or it’s just too beautiful for words. It’s a product that shows the possibilities of good design and craft, proving that both are for everyone and that somehow, they just make life better. Within minutes, it’s in your shopping basket.

The House and Home MAKE IT Awards 2014 in association with DCCoI and Fundit.ie, is on the hunt to find just such a product. Not only that, but we have combined our industry expertise to help get the winning product to market. This is an open call to professionals, graduates and students in the Irish craft and design industry.
