Nigel's design practice grew out of the 'do-it-yourself' culture of the 1980s, producing artwork for bands and activist groups while working as a print finisher and book binder. After leaving the print trade and completing a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design & Illustration, he set-up his own studio practice dedicating his time to clients from the cultural, public and voluntary sectors.
Nigel started his first teaching post in 2003 and joined University of Suffolk’s graphic design team in 2007. He is a Senior Lecturer and Course Leader for the undergraduate Graphic Design programme. He holds a PGCE in Post Compulsory Education and an MA in Arts Practice.
