As part of the ongoing visiting lecture series I visited the Visual Communication students at Arts University Bournemouth in January 2023. I spoke about the impact and development of design over the last 120 years, with a vast selection of artefacts and images, all taken from my collection, The lecture concluded with the viewing of one hundred artefacts from the archive, where students had a tactile experience on graphic design history.

The continual collecting of design ephemera and the ongoing support I offer educational establishments, champions design practice, encourages design discourse and further develops students skills in critical analysis. The archive and lectures are a great way of inspiring the next generation of graphic designers with an interactive and tactile approach to learning. By collecting and curating my design artefacts, I provide a unique insight into the evolution of design practice and the impact it has had on our society.
