Hello there. I’m a designer, researcher and lecturer working with an expanded definition of what ‘design’ can mean. My interests centre around knowledge and how to mediate it: research, teaching, practice, editing and writing. I work between London and Switzerland. I am also currently writing a PhD in design history.
I’m always happy to hear from people. My best work emerges from collaborations or provocations, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you’d like to discuss a project, undertake a collaboration, develop a curricula, experiment with teaching or research, or even just say hello.
Research and writing — Research is an integral part of my practice. I currently work as a research assistant at the HKB for the Swiss Graphic Design and Typography Revisited (SGDTR) research project. I have written articles for IDPURE, Progetto Grafico and Revue Diorama. I have also written academic articles in peer-reviewed publications. See my Google Scholar page for a bibliography.
Teaching — I am a lecturer at ECAL where I teach two classes: Critical History of Graphic Design to first year BA students (since 2012) and Design/Research to second year BA students (since 2016). I teach graphic design as a visiting lecturer at Kingston School of Art. I am an occasional visiting lecturer at HEAD Geneva and at the RCA and an external tutor at HKB.
I have either taught, given workshops, talks or guest critiques at Bern University of the Arts, Bristol University, ECAL, EPFL+ECAL Lab, Kingston University, Parallel School Lausanne, Royal College of Art, SUPSI (Lugano) and Usine Kügler (Geneva).
Design — I have worked as a designer for the Architectural Association, Atelier Dyakova, Cameron Mackintosh, COS, Idea is Everything, John Morgan studio, Jonathan Hares, Hauser & Wirth, and Studio Veronica Ditting. My studio clients include artists such as Amy Croft, the Demystification Committee, The Walking Reading Group and institutions such as ECAL, MACBA, Musées Cantonaux du Valais, RCA and the Whitstable Biennale.
