In addition to being a Pentagram partner, brilliant designer and all round inspiring person, with a huge heart, Marina willer also makes films. And her latest one is the the most personal story she’s ever told.
Why should you give an X in the upcoming UK election?
Because if you don’t vote you can’t complain. You can’t stand up for what you believe in. You can’t decide who decides important things like your reproductive rights as a woman or how elderly people are treated. You can’t have a say in how education, healthcare or any public services are run. People all over the world fight for democracy in their countries everyday so don’t take the right to vote for granted, show conviction and use it.
Time Machines: Daniel Weil and the art of design, curated by Martina Margetts is currently showing the Design Museum and is well worth a visit. Marcus Field, critic for the Evening Standard writes, “every design exhibition should be as thoughtful and engaging as this one”.
Daniel Weil is a designer, maker, thinker, teacher – and much more. After his arrival in London from Argentina in 1978 he attended, and then later taught at the RCA before setting up his own practice and then joining Pentagram as a partner in 1992.
We made this video at Pentagram to showcase some of the work that the partners do. This one features William Russell, an architect who is a very inspiring, very talented man. My eyes well up every time I watch this.
