I have just heard of the New Years Eve fire at the storage warehouse in Purley Way, Croydon which has been almost completely destroyed - which sadly held almost the entire contents of my good friend and collaborator, Joe Pearson's  (Design For Today) stock and ultimately his business, not to mention  personal family photos and most of a lifetimes precious book collection. 

As someone who also works alone to run a business (a lot of people may not realise that Design For Today is a relentlessly hardworking one man band) I can stress that something like this will be a completely devastation both personally and financially to the business.

Unfortunately his insurance covers very little of what has been lost (estimated to be in the realm of almost £100k worth of stock) and although money can't replace the items of sentimental value we would like to help Joe re-print the lost stock and make a start on replacing part of his book collection that he has amassed over the decades.

This is an appeal as a friend, to Joe's friends, collaborators, stockists, customers and supporters and even to those who have simply enjoyed the Design For Today Instagram posts that detailed the many wonderful pictures from his book collections, to please contribute what you feel you can.

Thankyou. Please share this far and wide to those you feel may be able to help.

Dear friends
I have been so touched by all of your kindness and warmth of generosity. It has been a rollercoaster ride since NYE, but with your support I intend to push on into 2019. The first steps will be to get back into print my 2018 titles and then to press ahead with those new titles that were in preparation. This wouldn’t have been possible without your help. I can’t thank you all enough!
Joe
