Nigel is a Senior Lecturer, Head of Arts, and Course Leader for the undergraduate Graphic Design programmes within the School of EAST. He teaches across all levels of the Graphic Design courses on both practical and contextual modules.
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 focused on socially responsible design, dedicating his services to clients from the cultural, public and voluntary sectors. Nigel started his first teaching post in 2003, and holds a PGCE in Post Compulsory Education and an MA in Arts Practice.
