The Design Museum is always good for inspiration and education with an ever changing list of exhibits and always worth a visit.
After an unsuccessful London visit in the summer that saw us lose half of the team to an urgent project, we finally managed to get everyone to the Museum of Brands and the Design Museum. They were definitely worth the wait!
The Museum of Brands in Ladbroke Grove is a walk back through the history of brands and a fascinating first-hand look at how trends, designs, and acceptable cultural attitudes have changed. Starting in the 1800’s and coming right up to present day it was a brilliant learning experience but also a lot of fun talking about the brands of our own childhoods that we had forgotten, but also listening to other people of different ages talk about theirs. We would highly recommend a visit.

After a walk through the beautiful Kyoto Garden in Holland Park we visited the Design Museum in Kensington. Here we continued the theme of looking back by taking a look around the ‘Design Maker User’ exhibit which gives a history of contemporary design as seen through those three roles. The Design Museum is always good for inspiration and education with an ever changing list of exhibits and always worth a visit.
