During a remarkable 20-year consultancy career, Bryan worked with clients across the globe, allowing him to build an international understanding of the design industry.

His innovative approach to design and teaching encourages his students to be fearless in their response to the challenges of today’s world.

Bryan’s teaching draws on a wealth of experience of different aspects of design, from branding, user experience, packaging and print. Part of his educational research work focuses on the development of online studio environments for learning and professional practice, making him ideally placed to understand and meet the needs of his online students.

Bryan believes in mentorship that is underpinned by academic rigour but also the reality of professional practice, so students can develop new forms of practice and innovative thinking that challenge the subject, education and the creative industry itself.

The graphic design team are led to provoke their students and to push the boundaries of creative excellence in order to achieve their fullest potential.

A little advice?

The design process always requires us to understand problems with fresh eyes; to seek new and unusual ways of seeing to bring about change for the world in which we live. With an online learning environment, this pushes design practice into a new dimension, so we can make the most of sharing ideas and points of difference globally and create innovative ways to develop graphic design practice.
 
At the same time students on the course will not be in a bubble, but connected and encouraged to be inspired by the continuously evolving world beyond their screens and with the international visual culture of the student group that would not be part of a standard studio-based course.
 
With the connections and reputation we have at Falmouth, this makes for an exciting opportunity to not only to design and deliver the course but also provide students with a highly appropriate and exciting way to engage with postgraduate study today.
