To my delight whilst working on another blog post today the article appeared in the results of a google search for industrial design in 'TROVE' the research database.......
Industrial designer Ian Edgar pictured at his drawing board at Kriesler Radio in Sydney. January 1960.
The article is exactly as Ian had described it at our first chat about his archive and fits perfectly into the notion of a design life form 17 to 71. This profile in a teenage insert 'other boys jobs' was arranged by Colin Barrie who was President of the Industrial Design Institute of Australia and profiled Ian as young designer who sort to make industrial design his life long career. The original car sketch pictured is featured in the current exhibition 'a design life' 17-71 at the Design Gallery of the Design Institute of Australia until April 27th.
