Brief Exchange is a group graphic design and illustration exhibition that invites its participants to compose a brief; to be exchanged with another participant’s brief at random.


The aim of Brief Exchange is to give creatives an opportunity to develop and promote their own work without the limitations often caused by clients’ feedback and budget. The creative’s target audience should be both themselves and other creatives. The show also aims to create a network for creatives who might not know each other yet.

So far 63 creatives have taken part, resulting in 150 posters overall.

Brief Exchange has been set up and is run by Noeleen Doheny.
