Terence Conran at London's Design Museum



Terence Conran talks about Habitat's beginnings, his philosophy, intelligent designing, the importance of supporting crafts, making things, and never giving up. Backed by his Retrospective at the Design Museum which I would have loved to see in person. Like a live Habitat Catalog.
Look at this awesome old Habitat launch poster:

And what is that great big graphic behing Stafford Cliff, in the upper right?:

And related, a spread about us from The Guardian UK earlier this year, talking about how we're more inspired by Conran's House Book and the 1970's than just about anything else.

Do you know who Is responsible for the poster design?

I wish I knew, Jade, but I don't have any idea, other than some graphic design genius.
