Wednesday, 2 September 2015  |  Admin

"Transported by Design is a celebration of our rich design heritage, which dates back over 150 years. Running from July 2015 to early 2017, this programme of events, exhibitions and competitions will raise awareness of the pioneering design used everyday by Londoners and visitors to the city, showing the impact of good design.

"Over the next two years we will:
    •    Highlight Design Icons across the transport network in 2015
    •    Explore the design of projects like Crossrail and Night Tube
    •    Celebrate 100 years of the Johnston typeface in January 2016
    •    Hold a design festival on Regent Street in summer 2016
    •    Unveil a commemoration at Piccadilly Circus station to former London Transport Managing Director Frank Pick in autumn 2016

The role design plays to help London work and grow is crucial to shaping the city's future, making lives easier, safer and more pleasurable. This will be our focus throughout the programme, working in joint partnership with the London Transport Museum."
