RIP Bill

To anyone who met him, Bill Moggridge always made an impression. He was the sort of man, (with a beautiful speaking voice), who always made you feel better for having met him. Reading on the BBC news webiste this morning, (from where I have copied this photograph), I see that his Associate Director at the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York - where he has been Director since 2010 - says, "Beloved by the museum staff and the design community at large, Bill touched the lives of so many through his wise council, boundary-pushing ideas and cheerful camaraderie,". Good words.Thank you Bill for all that you achieved for and in design. Our world seems so much smaller without you.
