Ian Noble Tribute
  • Martin Ashley
  • In the 35 years I have taught at LCC I have met quite a few 'larger-than-life' personalities and mavericks, but none match Ian who was the ultimate maverick and very much his own man.

    He was witty, committed, and professional along with considerable humour and enthusiasm. He was highly articulate, perceptive and when he walked into a room or attended any meetings or social gatherings, he had a definite 'presence'.

    He was a genuine visionary and this was most probably his greatest quality together with his passion for design and design education.

    I will miss him tremendously and will never forget my time with him at LCP as it was then called.
