Get Set Building Craft and Design Enterprise (GSBCDE) :

A national programme created for DCCI/LEO clients who want to push their boundaries on product development and branding. First piloted in 2019 this is an intense four day programme focusing on design process, product development and brand. Spaced at two month interval it allows time for important development work in the interim. Graduates of the Get Set Building Craft and Design Enterprise are then invited to apply to take part in the more in-depth  Building Craft and Design Enterprise Programme.

“The Get Set programme was by far the best and most inspiring course I have ever done. I feel so lucky to have been part of it, the speakers brought something new and exciting to the table”. Niamh Gillespie, Creative Director
