Diarmuid O'Connor

Limerick City Gallery of Art
An eclectic gathering of over 2,500 international posters, The Michael O’Connor Collection in LCGA is a must see for design enthusiasts, however due to shortages in space and storage facilities, this extraordinary collection remains hidden from view.
An app was created, giving the public access to the collection while also preserving it for the future. Taking a stripped back approach, the app's design lets the posters take centre stage.
Buttons and rule lines are kept visually light, text appears only where strictly necessary, and fades once past the viewer’s focus. A blur screen allows each poster to function as a coloured background while users browse its information. The hompepage features 360° scrolling, replicating the spontaniety of the physical gallery, while the browse section offers a more structured viewing experience.
