That’s right it’s design legend Sir Terence Conrans 80th Birthday today. He’s the great man who brought us Habitat and has branched into many fields of design.

I started this blog as a way of not only showing off my own work but also as a way of showcasing projects and products that I find inspiring, exceptional or in need of critiquing. My aim is to update once a day with something of interest, a challenge I know!

Please feel free to comment with your insights and even suggest designs which you feel are interesting!
