    I have just come across a PODCAST mp3 from London's Design Museum. The podcast covers an event entitiled FEEDBACK, held on 9th February earlier this year, which discussed the work of the late Graphic talent, Alan Fletcher, and "explored the history, working practice and achievements of pioneering design organisation Pentagram," which Alan Fletcher co-founded.

    Event speakers included current Pentagram Partners Harry Pearce, John Rushworth, and Paula Scher, each in conversation with Emily King, curator of the Design Museum's Alan Fletcher exhibition.

    For me, Pentagram remain one the most powerful design agencies, consistently producing pioneering contemporary and strategic communication design, with consistent focus to social issues. This is a design studio which all socially conscious creatives should take inspiration from.

    London designer Ben Terrett was in the audience, and his blog post earlier this year also profiles some thoughts and photos from the event.
