Many of the most iconic designs from everyday life are the work of one man – designer Kenneth Grange. In fact, his work is currently being celebrated by the Making Britain Modern exhibition at the Design Museum in London, with some interesting artwork by Tom Rowe to go alongside it.

Grange has designed everything from the Intercity 125 train to the Morphy Richards iron, with the pick of those designs making it into poster form the exhibition. The Intercity 125 train (A3 size) and Kodak Instamatic 233 (A3 size) are above, with the Reuters keyboard (A3) and a collage of leading designs (A1) featured over the page.

Available at the Design Museum Store, prices are from £15.
