i'm a
designer &
educator.

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

Teaching on both the Graphic Design
and Interactive Design HND courses, my specialisms are typography and design production for 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 in Edinburgh and London - with agency, in-house and freelance roles in publishing, computer games and digital design. I am a member of D&AD and am currently creative director at experimental design group blueroomcollective.
