Cornwall is to get another major tourist attraction to complement the Tate at St Ives, in the form of Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum Cornwall. The museum, designed by architect Long and Kentish and with a corporate identity created by Lewis Moberly, aims to attract a range of international visitors and to enrich the local community. ‘The identity captures the spirit of people enjoying small boats. It has an immediate visual appeal and accessibility appropriate to the museum’s boat collection and the interactive nature of much of its contents,’ says Lewis Moberly creative director Mary Lewis.
Drinks industry watchdog The Portman Group has teamed up with students from The Chelsea College of Art and Design for its latest campaign against drinking and driving. More than one million beer mats, bearing The Portman Group logo on one side, have been made available to the students, who have applied their own anti drink drive messages on the reverse. A panel of judges, chaired by 1998 Turner Prizewinner Chris Ofili, was assessing the designs as Design Week went to press.
