27 Feb 2014 – Britain’s Design Emblem – Royal Festival Hall – Naomi Games
A discussion about Abrams Games design. The official War Designer.
Having been brought up in a home where their father also worked, Naomi Games, her brother and sister and their mother, became Abram Games’ sternest critics. As he completed each design, he would ask his family to comment. If his children failed to grasp the meaning of his work, he would begin again. After attending the London College of Printing when Tom Eckersley was Head of the Department of Design, she worked as a freelance designer and as a play leader with children of all ages. Naomi has written and illustrated nine educational activity books for children. Since Abram’s death she has organised a touring exhibition of his work, lectures and runs his archive, which remains accessible to all, especially to students. Naomi has co-written a monograph on Abram Games and two books about Abram’s involvement with London Transport and with the 1951 Festival of Britain. – See more at: http://www.accdistribution.com/uk/store/pv/9781851496778/abram-games/naomi-games-and-brian-webb#sthash.aU8exFoi.dpuf
