It's been a couple of weeks since we landed back in London after the monster 3 day creative festival in Dublin that was OFFSET 2012. To be honest it's taken this long to digest it all. I'm still a little overwhelmed by how tightly the three founders run the conference, how impressive the international roster of speakers were and just how well the speakers were looked after by the organisers. The sheer enthusiasm for it all from both those that attended and the organisers was palpable.
We went to pretty much every talk over the 3 days and I can say hand on heart I didn't see a dud one, each provided food for thought and was inspiring in it's own way - whether it be full on fun with Friends With You, Sagmeister's more TED approach to the philosophy of being happy or seeing a 16 year old Conor Harrington tag "Art Attack" on the walls of Cork totally unaware of the 80's powerhouse Neil Buchanan.
It was a real honour to have been asked to speak there, especially amongst such a stellar line up, and I want to say a big thanks to all that came to see me ramble on. If you can stand the inevitable creative hangover, I thoroughly recommend you make it over to Dublin for OFFSET 2013!
