Kenneth Grange’s call for designers to stand up for better-quality work has prompted a groundswell of support.
Last week, the Pentagram founder and former partner called for British designers to make a stand and fight for the issues they care about.
Speaking at the Meeting of Minds event at the British Museum in London, Grange said, ‘Instead of us seeing the same work regurgitated time and again, designers should be trying to move design on.’
Interior designer David Chaloner has added his weight to the move, saying, ‘Designers should be brave enough to do battle over important matters such as politics, the environment and even morals.’
Chris Gough, writing on www.designweek.co.uk, says, ‘Good design takes balls and brains, not just aesthetic sensibility, slick software and smooth administration.’
