It may be time for London consultancy Skidmore Turnbull Design to get a bigger office. Creative director Mike Skidmore’s ego is expanding faster than your average prosperous designer’s waistband.

It may be time for London consultancy Skidmore Turnbull Design to get a bigger office.

Creative director Mike Skidmore’s ego is expanding faster than your average prosperous designer’s waistband.

Skidmore – who we hope doesn’t grow into Skidbore – has been asked to become a regular contributor to BBC Radio Wiltshire’s arts and entertainments programmes.

The new media megastar was approached by the station after an exhibition of his artwork, which impressed a presenter.

“I feel this will offer a great opportunity to talk about the link between art and design to a general interest audience,” says Mike.

“We are considering expanding our premises to accommodate Mr Skidmore’s ego,” say his colleagues.

Mike is asking for suggestions and contributions from designers, so call him on 0171-221 0110 if you want to sound off.
