Lucy Biggs

MA Graphic Design, 'Inclusivity in Design' Unit Leader

Lucy Biggs is an experienced senior lecturer, having worked in the fields of design and academia for over 15 years. 
Prior to joining the AUB team, she worked at Manchester School of Art, teaching on the prestigious BA (Hons) Graphic Design programme. Her work and research is underpinned by a background in typography and letterform, with a specific interest in the themes of identity, landscape and (relatively uniquely…) death. This is connected both with her personal experiences of loss along with a mixed body of professional insight, including a pedagogic project called Digital Grief, which first ran in 2020. 
Lucy also founded and curated the Letterspace project, first presented at The Whitworth (2018), along with the Creative Landscapes Workshop Series, exhibited at the Brewery Arts Centre (2016).

In the past, Lucy has worked as a graphic designer for The Guardian, the Institute of Contemporary Arts and as an art director for M&C Saatchi in Sydney. She has also worked with Visual Editions and Oded Ezer in Tel Aviv, as well as assisting Fraser Muggeridge. 
Lucy holds an MA in Graphic Design and a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design: Typography, both awarded by London College of Communication as well as a PGCert teaching qualification. In addition, she is a fellow of the HEA and was previously awarded a Teaching Excellence Fellowship by Staffordshire University.

Lucy has taught both practice and contextual studies on graphic design programmes throughout the UK including at Manchester School of Art, London College of Communication and Liverpool John Moores University. She was also previously graphic design external examiner for Bath Spa University, Sheffield Hallam University and UAL. 
Lucy has presented her pedagogic research at the HEA’s The Centrality of the Body to Learning and Teaching symposium in Nottingham (2016), the AIGA Design Educators Spaces of Learning conference in Toronto (2015) and the Graphic Design Educators’ Network De-Brief conference in Salford (2015).

Her work is also featured in Visual Research: An Introduction to Research Methodologies in Graphic Design by Russell Bestley and Ian Noble (2016, Bloomsbury) and in Graphic Design School (2010, Thames & Hudson).

"I'm excited to share my unique experience in inclusive design. The process is about delivering an outstanding user experience through design, in which a product, service, or environment is designed to be usable for as many people as possible, particularly groups who are traditionally excluded from being able to use an interface or navigate an environment."
