It aims to acknowledge people who are still making a key contribution to design today.

Through Design Week, we will aim to tell their stories, recognise their achievements and share their inspirational thinking.

The inaugural Hall of Fame members were among a shortlist nominated by Design Week readers. The final decision was made by the Design Week editorial team.
