Hello. I'm Chris Hughes and I lecture in Visual Communication at Edinburgh College.

teaching on the graphic and interactive design courses, my specialisms are typography and design production for both print and digital. In the lab my delivery focusses on workflow and execution; in the studio, the emphasis shifts to concept and the creative process.

I write course material for curriculum development, am involved in developing an award-winning employer engagement program, and have a number of tutor credits on award-winning work for D&AD, YCN and other important competitions for student designers. You can find out more about the projects, awards and events I'm involved in by visiting the graphic design course blog welovedesignetc.info.

Prior to lecturing, I spent more than 10 years as a designer - with agency, in-house and freelance roles in publishing, computer games and digital design, in Edinburgh and London. I am currently creative director at experimental design group blueroomcollective.

Contact me specifically via blog or twitter. Don't bother looking on social media sites like facebook or linkedin - I don't use them.
