Design Council Image Database

Established in 1944, the Design Council was formed to educate the British public about good design and serve as strategic entity for the design community. Throughout the history of the Council, images have been collected to reinforce its aims. These archival slides have recently been digitized and are now available online. Some 13,000 images make up the current database (roughly two-thirds of the collection). A must for those searching for inspiration or simply just interest in the history of design.

Head to the Visual Arts Data Service to explore. (via Creative Review and Curated).
