Design Nation launches a catalogue at Decorex International in September, showcasing the work of 130 product designers. Designers featured include architectural glass designer Karen Lawrence (kiln cast glass pictured); ceramicist Claire Seneviratne; furniture designer Rowland Ziervogel and textile graduate Michelle House. Design Nation promotes British design and assists graduates with business training. Decorex International takes place 21-24 September at The Royal Chelsea Hospital in London.
The project, which centres around an updated “WB” shield, aims to lay the groundwork for the company’s future ahead of its centenary in 2023.
The updated international logo is a “true reflection of the Dutch mentality” and is central to a brand strategy based around openness, inventiveness and inclusivity.
The redesign aims to attract “new, younger and more culturally diverse audiences” to the 118-year-old magazine, while avoiding confusion with The Times newspaper.
