Apparently the iPod, designed by Jonathan Ive, or the Internet, designed and invented by Tim Berners Lee, could shortly be voted the UK’s favourite design. The iPod was nominated for the New Designers iconic design poll by designer Sebastian Conran, and the Net was nominated by Wayne Hemmingway (who happened to design The Bug which I wrote about in my last blog entry).
The iPod and the Internet both appear in the current New Designers iconic design poll online – www.newdesigners.com. The poll, which the public can vote in, is being conducted by the New Designers show to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The winner of the New Designers poll will be announced at the New Designers event in London on 30 June 2005 when the exhibition opens to showcase "inspiring work by this year’s crop of graduate designers".
