With a personal archive boasting more than 5,000 design artifacts, I use this treasure trove for educational workshops, as a wellspring of inspiration, and as a means to deepen my understanding of design.
I have inspired students both locally and internationally including Milan from the IED, Istituto Europeo di Design, LABASAD (Barcelona School of Arts and Design). Arts Univeristy Bournemouth, Leeds Beckett and many more educational institutions. They’re meticulously curated with my extensive archive, offered either via live video or in-person settings, featuring hundreds of design artefacts that serve as a catalyst for discourse.
In addition to delivering lectures on graphic design history, I provide valuable insights into industry practices and running a design agency.
I also provide curated presentations to design agencies and at various events. Agencies have included teams of designers and managers, who were presented with a selection of design artefacts and a bespoke presentation, followed by a day of ongoing support on design projects, providing historical materials for contemporary thinking.
My bespoke lectures can be delivered either online or in person, where my extensive collection of printed design artefacts takes centre stage, enriching the learning experience.
If you have a keen interest in delving into the captivating realm of graphic design history, I offer an immersive experience that brings the archive right to your organisation or classroom. Through my interactive and tactile presentation, participants have the opportunity to physically engage with these historical artefacts, creating a truly captivating and hands-on learning experience.
