In Memoriam, Our Friend, Peter Lloyd Jones, PhD.

It is extremely sad news to share that our friend, Peter Llyod Jones, PhD passed away last month. Peter was our friend, collaborator and advocate for several years. He opened my eyes to the reaches and breadth of how design can impact our everyday lives….down to our cells. He introduced and spurred conversation within the DesignPhiladelphia festival – linking medicine with design – that has fundamentally changed the festival for the better ever since. Peter, you most definitely moved the needle. Thank you. I will miss seeing his updates on Facebook and Instagram and to get sweet notes of hello from him from across the pond. I will always remember his infectious smile and laughter. I will always regret not having more time. On behalf of DesignPhiladelphia, we extend our deepest condolences to Peter’s family and friends here in Philly and around the globe. We love you Peter and we will miss you. Below is one of my favorite videos of Peter, it shares just a sliver of the work he did here in Philadelphia. XO, Rebecca... Read more »
