After studying graphic design at Kingston and graduating with an MA from the RCA I taught on the Graphic Design programme at Pennsylvania State University for a year. In London I worked for five years as a graphic designer at the award winning design agency Trickett & Webb. My role covered art and design direction, commissioning illustration, print, packaging and exhibition design for a broad range of clients including DEGW architects, Thames TV, Volvo, Threshers and Royal Doulton. In the 80s I moved to Norfolk and started a freelance practice, working predominantly for clients from the ‘non profit’ sector including art galleries and international artists. I have worked extensively in advertising, publicity, multiple page publications, branding and identity across print and digital platforms. In 1983 I started as an HPL teaching at NUA on the BA and HND graphic design courses. For nine years I jointly co-ordinated the MA Book production and design unit in conjunction with the UEA Creative Writing course that culminated annually in their published Anthology. My current position as senior lecturer on BA Graphics affords many opportunities to explore the broad and exciting nature of future book and editorial design and further collaborative links with industry.
