WP Engine has released a global case study benchmarking the new website for The Design and Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCI).
DCCI commissioned WONDR to consolidate its wide variety of separate websites into a unified content hub.
Powered by WP Engine, the project went beyond a digital facelift and ultimately resulted in a strategic overhaul of DCCI’s site, which enhanced user engagement, strengthened DCCI’s brand reputation, and positioned the Council as a champion of Irish design and craft on a global stage.
Thanks to WONDR, we now have an online presence that truly reflects the role that DCCI plays in raising awareness of the vibrancy of the craft and design sector in Ireland.Suzy O’Keefe Head of Comms & Digital
DCCI’s digital transformation, led by WONDR in partnership with WP Engine, marked a significant milestone for the organization.
The project wasn’t only about creating a new website, but crafting a digital experience that mirrored the depth and richness of Irish design and crafts.
Suzy O’Keefe Head of Comms & Digital
We have been given a platform which we, the team at DCCI, along with the designers and makers we represent can be proud of. Our new website is an engaging visual experience that successfully demonstrates the breadth of work we do throughout Ireland.

Hoy, honramos con orgullo el legado de Jorge Luis Borges, un mago inequívoco de la literatura del siglo 20 cuya radiante creatividad continúa guiando e inspirando.
Hasta el día de hoy, la obra de Jorge Luis Borges resuena a lo largo de los años. La insaciable curiosidad de Jorge fue magistralmente canalizada para construir puentes culturales que sirven como fuentes vitales de inspiración, particularmente en el mundo de hoy, conectado globalmente.
Nacido el 24 de agosto de 1899, en el corazón de Buenos Aires, Argentina, conmemoramos lo que habría sido su 124º cumpleaños con un video que captura un reflejo de su trayectoria y conexiones con Irlanda.
Borges ocupa un lugar especial en el corazón de WONDR. Sus exploraciones nos inspiraron profundamente, notablemente su historia ‘UNDR,’ que dio origen a nuestro propio nombre. Su capacidad para fusionar culturas y conceptos refleja nuestra búsqueda de creatividad sin límites.
“Siempre he imaginado que el Paraíso será una especie de biblioteca.”Jorge Luis Borges Escritor, Ensayista, Poeta y Traductor
La conexión de Borges con Irlanda era profunda. Se sumergió en la literatura irlandesa, traduciendo obras clave y fomentando una conexión entre Argentina e Irlanda. Su participación en la celebración inaugural del Bloomsday en 1982 marcó un momento significativo.
A la buena edad de 82 años, finalmente pisó Dublín, como se recordó en una entrevista con Seamus Heaney y Richard Kearney. Aunque en esta etapa ya estaba ciego, todavía se sentía obligado a representar sus ausentes contornos visuales en su mente, avanzando a tientas por sus calles con su bastón explorador, como el hombre ciego del episodio de las “Sirenas”
Jorge Luis Borges ENTREVISTADO POR SEAMUS HEANEY
Durante 60 años, he caminado por el paisaje imaginario de Dublín.
La importancia de Borges trasciende fronteras. Su pasión por diversas tradiciones literarias y su maestría en entrelazar culturas ejemplifican la universalidad de la creatividad humana. Su legado permanece como un recordatorio de que la narración de historias y la exploración no conocen fronteras.
Únase a nosotros para celebrar la memoria de Jorge Luis Borges utilizando nuestros fondos especialmente creados para este día.
Today, we proudly honour the legacy of Jorge Luis Borges, an unequivocal magician of 20th-century literature whose radiant creativity continues to guide and inspire.
To this day, the work of Jorge Luis Borges reverberates through the ages. Jorge’s insatiable curiosity was masterfully harnessed to construct cultural bridges that stand as vital sources of inspiration, particularly in today’s globally connected world.
Born on August 24, 1899, in the heart of Buenos Aires, Argentina, we commemorate what would have been his 124th birthday with a video that captures a reflection of his journey and his connections with Ireland.
Borges holds a special place in the heart of WONDR. His explorations inspired us deeply, notably his story ‘UNDR,’ which gave rise to our very name. His ability to fuse cultures and concepts mirrors our quest for unbounded creativity.
"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."Jorge Luis Borges Writer, essayist, poet & translator
Borges’ connection with Ireland ran deep. He immersed himself in Irish literature, translating key works and fostering a connection between Argentina and Ireland. His participation in the inaugural Bloomsday celebration in 1982 marked a significant moment.
At the good old age of 82, he finally stepped foot in Dublin as recalled in an interview with Seamus Heaney & Richard Kearney. Even though by this stage he was blind, he was still compelled to represent its absent visual contours in his mind, tip-tapping his way through its streets with his probing stick, like the blind man of the ‘Sirens’ episode.

For 60 years, I've walked the imaginary landscape of Dublin.
Borges’ significance transcends boundaries. His passion for diverse literary traditions and his mastery of interweaving cultures exemplify the universality of human creativity. His legacy stands as a reminder that storytelling and exploration know no borders.
