Paul Atkinson - RIP

I recently learnt of the untimely death of Paul Atkinson of Leicester-based Atkinson Design Associates.

You can read a full obituary in Design Week but it's astonishing that Apple's chief designer Sir Jonthan Ive's college design teacher is almost completely unknown in Leicester.

I'd barely got to know Paul when he passed away. He was so full of first-rate ideas for art galleries and design festivals, not to mention his own design output. He was the driving force behind the seminal Design Leicestershire book.

He did so much to celebrate our local design talent - shouldn't we do something to celebrate him?
