History of the Archive:

The University of Brighton Design Archives has its origins in the deposit of the archive of the Design Council (formerly the Council of Industrial Design) in 1994. Since then it has developed its collections, with further archives acquired according to a specific collecting policy: to document aspects of twentieth-century design history, with a strategic focus on the connections between them. The University of Brighton Design Archives is an internationally significant research base with a curatorial team that initiates and promotes collaborative activity through a programme of publication and exhibition projects. Founded on a scholarly resource focusing on British design and global design organisations in the twentieth century, we contribute substantially to the research profile of the University. The Design Archives welcome scholars and students from many academic disciplines researching the designed environment, the design profession and design practice.
