A Creative Genius
What do Sir Jonathan Ive, Sir Paul Smith and Dan Pearson have in common?
All are creative, successful and inspired by gardens and gardening.
Sir Jonathan Ive is the Senior Vice President of Design at Apple, who was responsible for the design of the MacBook, the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad.
Sir Paul Smith is a legendry fashion designer and retailer with shops selling his designs throughout Europe, the USA and the Far East. His iconic, multi-coloured stripes are recognised by all who are interested in fashion the World over.
Dan Pearson is a World famous landscape and garden designer, journalist and TV presenter. Today he was awarded “Best in Show” at RHS Chelsea for his Chatsworth Garden in collaboration with Laurent-Perrier.
The UK is blessed with so many outstanding inventors, creators and designers who, like Sir James Dyson, are significant job creators, wealth producers and directly and indirectly very major tax contributors.
During the long history of Armada we have been privileged to help thousands of new businesses get started and to support them through their developing years. Some of these have gone on to become household names.
For the long term success of the UK it is vital that the country, the government and lenders see the importance of entrepreneurs and give them the encouragement and assistance that ultimately brings benefits to us all.
By the way, Dan Pearson created gardens for both Sir Jonathan Ive and Sir Paul Smith!
