The Emigrant Disco was a concept I came up with in 2014. With so many Irish people living abroad the mass return for the christmas period is a special time & I wanted to organise an event for people to meet-up. 

In terms of visual style I wanted to play on Irish cliches such as the green green grass of home & our love of making a cup of tea for every occasion. 

I didn't want to fall into the usual trap when reflecting Irishness - Celtic patterns & scenery so I tried to create a more modern feel using a collage style of image.
