Andrew Selby is Senior Lecturer in Illustration and Animation and Associate Dean for Enterprise in the School of the Arts, English and Drama. From 2011 - 2014 he served as Head of the School of the Arts.
Andrew's research interests originated out of the subject of illustration by questioning its perceived ‘place’ in the expanding world of visual communication. Through an exploration of the contextual challenges in relation to the conditions of ethics, sustainability, emerging markets and technological advances, his research identifies and explains the inter- and cross-disciplinary nature of illustration visualisation across multiple platforms. His research considers the visualisation and depiction of healthcare and travel data using the prisms of service design, UX, UI, and social anthropology for further study. These interests have resulted in individual and collaborative projects with other academics, industrial partners and organisations, traversing the areas of illustration, animation and graphic design through a variety of published outputs. He is author of Animation in Process (Laurence King, 2009) and Animation (Laurence King, 2013).
