    Hi folks, cool to say I\'m the first person to post on this great new website..lol. Firstly a wee bit about myself, I did Industrial Design in Sligo with the Mick who set up this site. College was a great time in my life but I wish I knew then what I know now about design, not dishing my course but I probably realised more about what it takes to be a designer and that I actually wanted to be one a couple off years after leaving. I currently worked as a glass bottle (Product & Moulds) for the last 5 and a half years. As a result I\'ve probablty falling away from ID but I\'ve always kept an eye on stuff through the years and currently working on my sketching and design ideas. I hope to have some post and tutorials up on the site in the next few weeks from some off my expierences and knowledge I\'ve picked up.
    Lastly best off luck to Sketchforsketch.com and hope to see lots off discussions and tips from everyone else.

    Hello and welcome to sketchforsketch.com. Yes I’m Michael an industrial designer, that hopes to create a place where we (designer and engineers) can hang out and chat about the issues that affect us here in Ireland and worldwide. You can use this forum to pass on your knowledge, experience to others, and perhaps learn new stuff. You can also use it to promote yourself, your ideas, your designs and your design business. So, feel free. :D

    Hi Phil and welcome,

    Another IT Carlow designer :=D and your designing coffee equipment, sounds interesting but technical. Your not working for the Marco company by any chance? You can place your link up if you like.

    :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Congratulations on getting the job there. When Gameface, Joergn and I were in college, our final year project was to design a espresso machine and Marco and Marcus Notley (external examiner) were the experts that set the brief. Ya man, those machines are fairly technical a lot to get right to produce the perfect espresso shot. So do you know the difference between a manual, semi automatic and fully automatic machine ? :=D (You see I did learn something in college Gameface :p and it was just that.)

    Hello and welcome Marianna, Yes I been on your site a few times now, DesignBurst sounds really great, if you could post more info about it and if you would like to make a new topic post about DesignBurst that would be brilliant. How would you describe DesignBurst is it a consultancy or is it a crowd sourcing design business? The networking events sounds cool and you also plan to provide workshops…..cool.
