    Hi Everyone,
    I am Marianna Kane of DesignBurst. DesignBurst is a new centre for product design based in Dublin (for now). Feel free to contact me if you are interested in participating in our product design contracts or attending our product design networking events :-) Here is a link to our facebook : DesignBurst facebook page so that you can see our updates.

    Marianna, Welcome to Sketchforsketch. I'm sure many of our members here will be interested in participating in your product design contracts or attending your product design networking events. Out of curiosity, you say your based in Dublin (for now). Is the long term plan to stay in Ireland and if so where would you like to be based (If you don’t mind answering). Just curious as we had some post before here on the site discussing about is it possible to be based outside of Dublin or the major cities if you’re a design company.

    Hi,
    Thanks for looking at the business. DesignBurst will be a centre for product design i.e. ideas come in (either from businesses or designers) and DesignBurst develops these ideas into products that sell. Designers can become members of DesignBurst and bid for incoming contracts. Should a designer wish to explore one of their ideas through DesignBurst then they pay for residency and get a lot of mentoring, support and resources to make the project actually happen. We have a network of contacts here and overseas to help push products forward. I just recently established the company and am in the process of starting some designers on projects (they start Monday). I have been trying to keep my company fun, engaging and refreshing for designers to compliment the creative process. We always welcome tips and ideas and love meeting with designers who are keen to be active in product design. I would like to start a topic for people to ask questions...etc but I am unsure what area of the site to put it in to?

    Hi

    Yes the long term plan is to keep the HQ for DesignBurst in Ireland. Perhaps smaller hubs will open internationally in time if we get this going here. The reason I say Dublin for now is because I had always intended on opening the centre somewhere more scenic. Enterprise Ireland have supported me starting the business in Blanchardstown and I will probably keep an office there for meetings, networking ...etc. I would like to establish a dedicated building in Meath for Product Design and will do this when cash flows permit :-) I think Dublin is handy for starting out because my designers and clients can find me...etc. However, when I establish the company - the location of the business will be irrelevant as I will have the support of a number of skilled designers and we will work on international contracts. If designers are currently emigrating for work I am sure I can coax some to Meath if I have their trust :-) lol.
