Nigel Ball

Head of Arts and Course Leader for Graphic Design

Nigel is a Senior Lecturer, Head of Arts and Course Leader for the undergraduate Graphic Design courses within the School of EAST.

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 services 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. Alongside his other responsibilities, Nigel is the Arts representative on the School of EAST's Ethical Research Committee, and the University of Suffolk's representative on the Ipswich Conservation and Design Panel. He holds a PGCE in Post Compulsory Education and an MA in Arts Practice.
