Alison Brooks is featured in Design Council’s ‘Leading Women in Design’ series. The series celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the Representation of the People Act 1918 which for the first time, granted some women the right to vote in the UK.

To mark this anniversary Design Council feature a series of ‘Leading Women’  who have each made invaluable contributions to shape the world that we live in today over a course of twelve months.
