The ‘Royal Designers’ are responsible for designing the world around us, enriching our cultural heritage, driving innovation, inspiring creativity in others and improving our quality of life.
“Belonging — making home, making public, united by pattern, finding magic, finding belonging, look & see and remember to play.”
Born and Bred, London, Morag Myerscough RDI has always lived in the city and has been fascinated by how colour, pattern and words can change urban environments and people’s perceptions of spaces into places. Her work is rooted in creating a sense of joy and belonging for all those who encounter it. Morag creates specific local responses to each distinct audience that will see and experience the work, using it to create community and build identity.
Prior to the Address, 3 new Royal Designers for Industry (RDI) and 3 new Honorary Royal Designers for Industry will be welcomed to the Faculty.
The title ‘Royal Designer for Industry’ was introduced by the RSA in 1936 to promote the important contribution of design in manufacturing in industry, to encourage and reward outstanding practitioners, and to raise the profile of the design profession.
Now regarded as the highest accolade for designers in the UK, it is awarded annually to designers of all disciplines who have achieved sustained design excellence, work of aesthetic value, and significant benefit to society. A maximum of two hundred British designers can hold the title and non-UK designers may receive the honorary title Hon RDI.
To celebrate the opening of the RSA’s new coffeehouse, Rawthmells, we’re bringing together a series of powerful conversations and sharing the best ideas on some of the challenges we face as a society in the next decade and beyond.
