The 2022 graduates from the Visual Communication Design course at the Institute of Art, Design and Technology Dún Laoghaire  created a wide variety of  multichannel projects offering solutions to families expecting a baby with Down's syndrome, encouraging open conversations about vaginas and providing new ways to remember the deceased.


Camille Lindlahr's Coco project is a is an app and online support network for families who are expecting a baby with Down's Syndrome. The Coco app comes equipped with a mood tracker to support families monitor their mental wellbeing, lets them choose how to learn more about Down's Syndrome through tailored learning methods and allows them to contact a trained nurse for advice. In addition to the app, Coco features a branded care box which features useful resources for different stages of pregnancy and beyond.

Aoibhe McCann has created a promotional campaign for charity Voiced, which helps to motivate and empower young people to talk about their vaginal health. McCann has created bold posters that break the taboo around topics such as vaginal discharge, thrush and bacterial vaginosis. McCann also produced a series of resources for professionals to engage with young people including icebreaker games and fold-out brochures.





Elizabeth Chambers has created the user interface and marketing collateral for Spotted, a service that helps adults spot, assess and seek treatment for learning difficulties. Users are guided through a series of questions to determine the likelihood of them having a learning difficulty (such as ADHD, Dyslexia and Dyscalculia) and advise them on what the next steps are.

Darragh Black's Totem project speculates how we bury loved ones in a future where there is no longer physical space for graves. Black's solution is a smart device in the shape of a ring which users wear and catalogue their life on, which can then be passed on to friends and family after death. Rather than visit a cemetary, those who wish to remember the deceased can then log-in to a digital space where they can access memories, images and voice messages from throughout their loved-ones life.

Ailish Phillips wants people to consider the long-term life of their clothing with the Stitch app. Users who sign-up to Stitch first receive a pack through the post containing a starter pack of sewing essentials to maintain and repair their clothing, plus a unique QR code which they can stitch onto a piece of clothing before they pass it on to a new owner. Using the app, users can document when and where they got their garment and track the clothing's life as it changes hand through retail, swapping and passing through family members.
