Design musings

  • Comment

Given copious amounts of champagne, the 10th anniversary party of the Design Museum went with a swing, though a fuel spillage on the Thames caused the fireworks to be cancelled. 'In the new economy, design will be more important than ever, ' said Chancellor Gordon Brown in his congratulatory speech. 'It usually takes 100 years for a great British institution to be recognised as such - you've only just begun!'

Upstairs in the new exhibition, Sir Terence Conran admired Eric Gill's typeface for Penguin paperbacks. 'I certainly wouldn't be standing here today unless I had this guy as an inspiration, ' he confided. I bet Eric couldn't cook for toffee.
