Although the 1960's designs still look great now, we agree that they might miss the point on the current supermarket shelf. Especially considering that there are now double as many products on offer as in 1965. When designing the Basics range, we were of course inspired by the simplicity Peter Dixon's design and his coherent use of colour.

Coincidently our own Richard Williams started his career in the 60ies under Peter Dixon at the Sainsbury's inhouse design team.

I am very interested with the milk filled balloon created by James Huse, Josh Eaton and Steven Keylock of Kingston . I would like to give a toast to them on my behalf because it just shows the new movement of British contemporary art . As I am a current foundation art student I am very inspired by new British talents that are unique and which are growing.The potential which is evidently seen by these graduates shows the depths of desire for art to speak for itself visually and contextually and especially its eye capturing 3d sculptural design which has has taken my breath away.
