Professor David Crow

Graphic Design: Where are we now, and how did we get here? - FULLY BOOKED


Graphic Design is a relatively new discipline. Over its short history it has changed considerably and adapted to changes in Art & Design education driven by wider social and economic change. Professor David Crow attempts to take a snapshot of the current state of play from a number of perspectives and poses some questions for graphic design education as it looks to the future.

David Crow studied Communication Design at Manchester Metropolitan University. He subsequently worked as a designer in London for Assorted iMaGes and as Art Director for Island Records before running his own consultancy. As a freelance designer he worked for a range of clients in the cultural sector including Rolling Stones Records, Virgin Records, Phonogram and The Royal Shakespeare Company. He then moved into academia as Head of the Department of Graphic Arts at Liverpool John Moores University. Professor David Crow is now Dean of Manchester School of Art and Pro-Vice-Chancellor.
