i'm a
designer &
educator.

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

Teaching on both the BA (Hons) and HND design courses, my specialisms focus on
typography, layout and production across Graphics and User Experience Design.

I write course material for curriculum development, most recently contributing to our new BA (Hons) degree in Visual Communication in conjunction with Kingston University London, Scotland' newest creative degree course. I'm also involved in delivering our ground-breaking employer engagement program, and have numerous tutor credits on award-winning work for D&AD, YCN and other important competitions for student designers.

Prior to lecturing, I worked for 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 a founding director of award-winning experimental design group blueroom collective.
