Deborah Dawton receives Design Week Hall of Fame Award
Held at Illuminate at the Science Museum last night, Design Week presented Deborah Dawton, DBA Chief Executive, and Rama Gheerawo, Director, The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design and Reader in Inclusive Design, with the prestigious Hall of Fame award for their long-standing and ongoing contributions to the design industry.
Described by Design Week as an accolade that ‘recognises individuals within design who have made a significant contribution to the industry; have provided inspiration and incisive thinking; or who have simply created consistently brilliant work. It aims to acknowledge people who are still making a key contribution to design today.’
Deborah said, on accepting the award “Whatever I can do at the DBA to keep you at the top of your game, is my mission. So keep doing what you do, reach ever higher in your aspirations because that’s motivation for me and the amazing team at the DBA. Thank you Design Week for this award. I’m honoured and humbled by it.”
