Lara Hanlon

Lara Hanlon studied Visual Communication at IADT. She is now a designer at IBM Studios Dublin & will be leading the IBM Design Thinking workshops at Offset 2016 in Dublin.

My student experience was thoroughly exciting and enjoyable and successfully prepared me for employment. My graduate project éntomo won the New Star Award at the Shenzhen Design Awards for Young Talents in China (2014), organised in association with UNESCO Creative Cities Network. Following placements in the Science Gallery and Atelier, I secured a place on the IBM Design Programme in Austin, Texas. After three months intensive training I am now working at the IBM European Design Centre.
