Change Making

LDF 2022

Over the last three decades, the challenges faced by both people and the planet have evolved dramatically, becoming increasingly complex and urgent. In response, the values and priorities that shape the landscape of design have shifted, influencing what we design and how we design it, where we manufacture it, and the materials we use.


In its 25th year, Pearson Lloyd has been reflecting on its work through the lens of these changes, thinking about what they mean for people, the spaces we occupy, and the world we call home.


Open from the 20th-25th of September, register here to attend.

Thomas Lloyd
Master of faculty of Royal Designers Industry

RDI Master

We are delighted to announce that Tom will be assuming the role of Master of the Faculty of Royal Designers for Industry and will be making his inaugural address ‘Making sense, making progress; Design after Covid’ at the RDI 2021 Awards dinner on Thursday 25th November.

The title Royal Designer for Industry was introduced by the Royal Society of Arts in 1936 to promote the important contribution of design in manufacturing in industry, to encourage and reward outstanding practitioners, and to raise the profile of the design profession. Now regarded as the highest accolade for designers in the UK, it is awarded annually to designers of all disciplines who have achieved sustained design excellence, work of aesthetic value, and significant benefit to society.

Tom and Luke were each awarded the title of RDI in 2008
