The Guardian appoints top 50 design figures in the UK

The Guardian has rattled off a list of 50 people in the UK, chosen by a mystery panel of judges, who've been titled the very top in design talent--the "brightest stars." Strangely, the chart topper is not a designer, but "producer, not manufacturer," Thorsten van Elten who invests in young design talent with a focus on furniture and housewares. Scroll down a bit and you'll find Jonathan Ive. Dive to the middle and there sits Cameron Sinclair. And at the bottom rungs you'll find Tim Brown, only the CEO of IDEO, hanging out. Aside from the perplexing arrangement, it's definitely a list worth scoping out with a few names you probably haven't heard of before, but will be glad to add to your design factoid collection.
