DIT Hothouse

What is the DIT Hothouse?

DIT Hothouse is the award-winning Knowledge Transfer and Incubation Centre at Dublin Institute of Technology, responsible for the commercialisation of intellectual property arising from DIT research. DIT Hothouse wanted to redesign the look and feel of their brand as well as create an identity for one of the sub divisions within DIT Hothouse: OpenLabs. The task was to create a brand identity that would imbue all of the values of the incubation hub whilst also adhering to the branding guidelines of Dublin Institute of Technology.
