Craig Doogan is a fantastic photographer and digital artist based in Dundee and one of the best I've came across. He produces some incredible images and captures Dundee at it's best.
The V&A Dundee is Scotland's first design museum and has helped put Dundee on the international cultural map.
Dundee is the UK's first ever UNESCO City of Design. Given to the city in 2014, it has built on the legacy of the title with the opening of Scotland's first design museum, the V&A Dundee. Dundee's design industry also excels in it's achievements for life sciences, comics, journalism, video games and much more!
Dundee is the home of The Beano which is published by DC Thomson. It is one of the best-selling comic book series of all time and
Dundee was also the home of DMA Design which created the Grand Theft Auto series which is considered one of the best video game series ever created.
The city also is a hub of life sciences, we are one of the best cities in the country to be a student thanks to our incredible universities and educational institutions.
What makes Dundee stand out against the rest is the fact that we are a city full of incredible people. Incredible people who have done amazing things which have changed the world as we know. Here are just three examples...
A CITY OF PIONEERS
THE NEXT CHAPTER.
The 21st century is where everything changes for Dundee. The city is going through quite an extraordinary regeneration and a city adapting to the future but keeping it's past alive. Once a city which gained it's wealth from industrial is now heading towards a more greener future. Dundee will soon be home to Eden Project Scotland which is due to open by 2025 at the latest.
Dundee has been recently named as one of the cities of the future by Cognizant and there is no surprise why, the past ten years have been some of the most dramatic and exciting times in Dundee. The waterfront has been completely renovated with the addition of the £80m V&A Dundee, Scotland's first design museum.
This is the most exciting time in Dundee's history. The eyes of the world are starting to see that Dundee means business. The city has been overlooked time and time again, and now is the time that we show others what a small city like ours can achieve!
