Designer Morag Myerscough founded the award-winning Studio Myerscough in 1993. Morag Myerscough is one of the UK’s most prolific designers. Her work is characterized by an engaging boldness, creating specific, local responses to each distinct audience that will see and experience the design, using it to create community and build identity. Morag makes places from spaces that people like to be in, that stimulate and often make you smile. She creates and curates many different types of work. The eclectic breadth of work covers the conversion of a train to a café, installations, numerous exhibitions and interpreting buildings.
Myerscough has also designed several exhibits for London’s Design Museum from Archigram to Formula 1. She designed exterior of the British Pavilion for the 2004 Venice Biennale. She recently was awarded the contract to create the Design Museum’s permanent exhibition for its new home, one of the UK’s most important new cultural projects. With Cartlidge Levene she designed the wayfinding for the Barbican Centre and continuing their relationship they are currently designing wayfinding for Tate Modern’s new Herzog and De Meuron extension.
Her projects have been nominated and won many
awards, last year alone The Movement Café (pictured) won a Design Week Award, the FX Award
for Best Public Space Scheme and was nominated for several prizes.
