Visit 1 – Dave Darcy of One Strong Arm, chaired by Mary Plunkett

OSA is a letterpress print studio based in the heart of Dublin city. Dave creates contemporary typography-led work using traditional methods. The studio’s output usually involves an ever-growing collection of antique wood and metal type, but on occasion it will also include some more modern techniques and processes. While much of OSA’s work comes in the form of self-initiated projects Dave also works closely with designers, artists, agencies, writers, musicians, illustrators, collaborators, experimenters and co-conspirators to create thoughtfully produced work of all kinds.
