'Errors are for Discovery'
Gardiner Street Lower (Custom House) Dublin 1

Dublin City Council
The quote is taken from our most infamous author James Joyce, who wrote about Dublin’s Quays frequently. This quote is fitting in that it aims to inspire people to overcome their own personal ‘errors’ to discover
their strengths. The modern typeface has been created for this piece to reference modern Dublin. The thick connecting stroke mimics those simple childhood toys that popped out from plastic frames to ‘make’ all sorts of creations. This attempts to communicate how we can ‘make’ changes in our life after we have made errors. Finally, the triangle represents the many directions we can take in life.
