"I'm excited to engage with students in exploring historical and contemporary conventions in the graphic design field and examine new approaches in applying such knowledge to present-day cultural and societal issues. Using the tools, techniques and theories of graphic design we may be able to empower individuals and communities, and influence behaviour change for the common good.”
