Design Council archive images go live online

The Design Council has put thousands more images from its slide collection online.

The pictures went live on the national Visual Arts Data Service website, based at the University for the Creative Arts, on Friday.

About 4000 images of tableware, furniture, lighting, toys, domestic appliances, textiles, wallpapers, office equipment and machinery, as well as branding and graphic design examples from the past 50 years, have been added to the online resource.

Nearly two-thirds of the collection, or more than 13 000 images, are now available to view on the Vads website, which showcases more than 100 000 museum, gallery and university images.

The Design Council moved its physical slide collection to Manchester Metropolitan University in 1995, since when it has been put online in stages.
