This exhibition is a reminder that design began way before the 1980s and the age of the celebrity designer. This is also a reminder of LCC's critical role in mid-twentieth century design development. It was a time when designers such as Eckersley ran the department for the subject and for the students studying the subject. Well done to the LCC for acknowledging this so publicly with a wonderful display of work. Loads of fabulous images here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lcclondon/
