The William Morris Society

The William Morris Society was founded in 1953 to make the life, work and ideas of William Morris (1834-96) better known. Morris was an artist, designer, craftsman, writer and socialist who was a revolutionary force in Victorian Britain.

We designed a new website for the Society, launched on its 60th birthday, working with a new brand identity designed by Pentagram.


“From the very beginning Bookswarm fully understood our brief. We felt completely at ease working with, and handing over to them, and feel that they have helped above and beyond what we would have expected. The dedication and creativity that they brought to the initial meetings enthused us with confidence and the beautiful, clear and practical site that they have created for us reflects William Morris’s aesthetic and approach perfectly. We are beyond happy with the work they have done and would recommend working with them to any interested party – we felt supported and treated as individuals and no question was too small!”
