Biography

I write about graphic design. I have a Bachelors in Multimedia Design (UK), a Masters in New Media and Digital Culture (NL), and a PhD from the department of Art and Communication (UK). My recent (generally cynical) projects focus on realist accounts of everyday graphic designs. I am currently final year lead of the undergraduate course Graphic Design and Animation, in which Ialso lead the Advanced Studio and Theory modules.
