Frank Ryan, chief executive officer of the development agency Enterprise Ireland, recently addressed UK design agency staff at a reception held in the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin.

The event at the former brewery – now a museum – was held to mark the Creative Agencies Campaign organised by Enterprise Ireland to introduce top design agencies to Ireland’s print and packaging industry.

Flight Flexible, Kenilworth Products, Dakota Packaging, Multi-Print and Dollard Packaging were among those on the tour which highlighted the capabilities and often innovative approach taken by the Irish packaging sector.

Two tours have now taken place, attracting designers from over 30 agencies, including Wolff Olins, Siebert Head, Lewis Moberley and Dragon Brands.
