designer of the year UK is......

Awile back I posted the list of nominees for the Designer of the Year UK award that included nominees like humanitarian designer Cameron Sinclair, furniture designer Tom Dixon and Gorillaz mastermind Jamie Hewlett.

Well the winner was recently announced and it was Hewlett that walked away with the goods this year.

"Jamie Hewlett has not only created a personal mythology with the virtual band Gorillaz, he has also created designs for the direction in which technology and culture are going, the shape of things to come." (Chair of the jury Sir Christopher Frayling )
