Love that #design in early education makes this list > Designers of the future: 7 ways to make the best even better http://www.designcouncil.org.uk/news-opinion/designers-future-seven-ways-make-best-even-better
Design Council recently got a group of twenty leading figures from industry and education together to talk about how we can make the best of our design education even better.  We know we’re doing a lot right. We have the largest design industry in Europe, and the second in the world, after the USA. According to the latest government statistics, the sector grew 10.8% each year from 2008-2013; compared to 4.2% for the rest of the economy.

An odd, but mostly great, assortment: 25 of the Most Desirable Objects Ever Made http://gizmodo.com/25-of-the-most-desirable-objects-ever-made-1618569474 #IndustrialDesign
We're surrounded by scores of gadgets so well-designed it's almost impossible not to fall in love with some of them. I wanted to share some of my personal favorites. The following set of images serves as a confession for me; call me crazy, but I adore these objects so much, that simply to touch and hold them causes a pleasant sensation in my nervous system.
