Half a century of British design launched online

Half a century of British design launched online"Four thousand images from the Design Council Slide Collection have been launched online, providing a unique insight into the history of British design and its promotion by the UK government from the 1940s to the early 1990s. The Design Council was established in 1944 and is the UK's national strategic body for design. The images relate closely to the changing scope and policies of the Council over a period of almost fifty years, providing valuable visual evidence of the ways in which design has been evaluated and promoted throughout this period"
