Iain has recently joined LCC having previously been Associate Professor, Head of Design Photography, Advertising and Programme Leader of MSc Creative Advertising at Edinburgh Napier University. There he taught across both the award winning Creative Advertising and BDes (Hons) and MA Graphic Design programmes drawing on his professional expertise in motion graphic design and directing commercials.
He has over 25 years of creative industry experience as an award winning television graphic designer at BBC Television, and as a film and commercials director at The Moving Picture Company. His practice-led research and pedagogic research into internationalisation, the moving image and lens-based media have been published in a monograph, in several journals and presented at many international conference papers, informing an argument for future directions in design practice and education.
Recent research collaborations have taken him to Mozambique to develop co-designed health education communication with UNICEF partners and students. Iain is eager to embrace the design activist heritage of LCC to further advance social awareness and community action through various graphic media, both locally and internationally.
He is a member of Chartered Society of Designers, a Senior Fellow of the HEA and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
