Piranha Bar Embraces Eclectic Creativity for OFFSET 2016

Animated 3D 'head nuggets' take centre stage at Dublin festival

Piranha Bar Embraces Eclectic Creativity for OFFSET 2016

Piranha Bar have just come down from a stratospheric OFFSET 2016, Dublin's groundbreaking festival of creativity and design.

The studio artists, directors and producers were immersed in the three day design & creative conference over this last weekend, exploring the diverse talent pool that OFFSET attracts each year.


Piranha Bar was given the opportunity to create the Opening Titles and Speaker Titles for OFFSET Dublin 2016. It is a rare opportunity to be given such free-reign with creativity in commercial content production, but it is OFFSET's vibrancy and desire to seek out new and fresh concepts and design that made this collaboration so fitting. Piranha Bar was able to flex their creative muscle, thanks to the passionately creative minds of the OFFSET team.


The one minute main titles took the form of a montage of bizarre talking abstract sculptures. The 3D ‘heads’ were driven by facial performance capture. The resulting piece condenses the experience of attending an inspirational OFFSET weekend into one intensely saturated nugget of graphic expression.


Piranha Bar's Gavin Kelly taking to the main stage was a highlight. Talking to OFFSET's crowd of 3,000 about his multi disciplinary studio in Dublin and their recent ADHD diagnosis. But by embracing their ‘multidisciplinarianism’  they create hybrid projects for a newly hybridized world.

Thanks to our friends at Motion Capture for their work on the audio motion.
