Personal profile


Following a BA (Hons) in Graphic design and an MA in Visual Communication, he began working as a freelance graphic designer and animator invested primarily in the visual interpretation of music. After working with artists such as Lightning Bolt, Rolo Tomassi, Enter Shikari, Drumcorps and AC4, Lindley designed his own post-subcultural entity ‘Sunbird Records’ as a research project which later became the primary vehicle for his PhD, investigating post-subcultural discourse and it’s practical application through independent music culture. As the label expanded, Lindley opened his own music venue and recording studio to further explore notions of post-subculture, independence and neo-tribalism, something which continues to feed into his research and teaching.
