Who would you like to see appointed to the Design Council board?
Kevin McLoud. He is knowledgeable, passionate about design, a great communicator and recognisable outside the design world. He would give a human face to the Design Council which, in this media-savvy age, is essential to create awareness about design issues.
Graham McCallum, Director and founder, Kemistry
The Design Council successfully creates demand for excellent design. But unless we can also consistently supply that excellence from the UK, clients will search overseas. I’d like to see the council pursue its plans to support the UK consultancy sector by appointing a ‘consultancy champion’. Someone who really understands how design businesses – big and small, urban and rural, famous and new – think and work. Someone who will represent them all and promote their interests, without partiality and with passion.
