TSSG and Waterford Design Students win H2020 design proposal


TSSG – WIT’s Information and Tech research group – has put forward several logo designs by final year Visual Design students for the European Union’s Horizon2020 programme for research and innovation.

Horizon2020 will make almost €80 billion available to IT and technology innovation with research topics varying from nanotechnology, to food security, to smart transport and more. This will have the added benefits of attracting private investment, creating job security, and stimulating economic growth across Europe.

Visual Design students Tom Cronin, Sara Cosgrave, Kelly O’ Dwyer and Gavin Hogan, with the support of lecturer Dr. Ethel Claffey from the School of Business, were delighted to learn that their Logo had been chosen for one of these research proposals. Sara Cosgrove said of the project “We were delighted to get the opportunity to learn and gain experience working with a real company over a set period of time.”

Dr. Claffey went on to say “The competition has given the students the opportunity to deal with real customers, enabling them to gain professional experience. This is an experience which they can take with them into the work place”.

TSSG was founded in 1996 by Dr. Willie Donnelly & Eamon deLeastar and today supports over 100 members of staff, and has birthed 16 spinout companies in the South East, including the hugely successful FeedHenry – A pay as you go cloud storage service, and Kodacall – Click to Call technology for apps and websites.

Swift Print has been providing TSSG with all their promotional and printed materials for the last number of years, and we are delighted to see TSSG been awarded for their work , congratulations to all the team who are once again providing exciting and innovate services for the South East and beyond.” – Marcella Meagher, Managing Director.
