Britannia still rules the waves, maintains Myring

Britain’s designers are not producing ‘bland, boring’ ideas as Matt Davies writes (Letters, DW 15 May), but are still up there with the best. British style is eclectic. Copied by the Americans, loved by the Japanese, French, Italians …

Our style is as recognisable as any other nation’s, but very hard to ‘pin down’. As an island race with a seafaring tradition, British style is a marriage of styles from around the world, interpreted to suit our landscape, people and character.

Every day in London I see new examples of this strong design lineage – quirky, interesting, simple, effective design solutions. I work with enthusiastic, fresh, creative, individual designers and clients that trust designers totally.

Maybe I’m lucky? Or maybe Matt should move to London?
