Nigel Carrington

Nigel Carrington features in Design Week, commenting on what the next government should do to help the design industry. Nigel and other expert commentators from across the sector shared their top line advice for whichever party takes the reins in May.

Nigel told Design Week: “Government needs to see creative subjects as more than just a skillset. Creativity is a way of thinking that leads to innovation, can be taught to anyone and used in any career. It should be seen as a marketable skill and a key economic differentiator for the UK. To do this properly, government needs a joined-up creative policy which is enshrined in education and industrial policy, as well as specialist arts areas: an essential rather than nice-to-have objective for government.”
