Hannah  Ellis


Hannah Ellis is a graphic designer, critical writer, and Acting Year 3 Leader.

After working for a number of years as a graphic designer specialising in print and publication design, Ellis started to research the extended role of the ‘publication’ during her time on the MA Visual Communication at the Royal College of Art.

As well as exploring how workshops, performative lectures, and video might support or enhance printed publications, she started to develop a critically-framed journalistic writing practice as a form of graphic design; since then she has had essays and articles published internationally in Eye and Creative Review. The main focus of her writing is the cross over between graphic design and education, and how artefacts and outputs can be expressive of the social, political, economic, and cultural factors at play.

In 2019, her essay 'Education at 400/bpm' was published in Modes of Criticism 4: Radical Education, exploring the landscape of ‘radical’ pedagogies in relation to the institution, as well as what the lay of alternatives might tell us.

She is also an Associate Lecturer on the MA Graphic Communication Design at Central Saint Martins, and is currently completing her PGCert in Academic Practice.
