Subject Group Leader – Visual Communication
I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University in 1995, having studied graphic arts and design alongside Patrick Walker and Alun Cocks who subsequently set up Dust in Sheffield in 2000.
I have been teaching since 1997 on degree courses at six different universities and have seen more than 1,000 students graduate. Many of these make regular return visits to talk to current students.
To have the opportunity to work in education, shape a course and remain a practising typographer is the perfect balance.
I have reviewed conferences for the Eye magazine blog and am currently working on a research project with Matt Edgar about the future of reading and the design writing of Ken Garland. I am also typographer at www.du.st
