Informed by your particular discipline, during the Graphic Design and Typography programme offered by the Anglia Ruskin University you’ll frame your research within the context of current critical debates, examining modern production and dissemination methods used both nationally and internationally. Your research can be practice-led and conducted primarily through design projects.
You’ll be allocated two supervisors, with additional staff members available if necessary. Graphic Design and Typography supervisors are experienced in most areas of graphic design and typography, with a focus on type design and type history.
At Cambridge School of Art, you’ll be part of a vibrant and growing community of researchers working in many different fields. We provide various research forums that accentuate the interdisciplinary nature of our research, including the Typographic Research Group, and have strong links with many professional organisations, including Atypi, Typographic Research Initiative, Typecon (USA) and various critical and professional journals. You’ll have the chance to participate in publications, exhibitions and conferences, gaining valuable research experience and contributing to Cambridge School of Art’s critical culture.
We’ll provide you with many opportunities for career development and training, and encourage you to get involved with external activities like conference organisation and giving papers. You might also be able to take on teaching responsibilities in Cambridge School of Art, or organise research events such as conferences and seminars.
In conjunction with Anglia Ruskin University research support, you can request specific support for writing-up, conference papers, general research methods and other research skills if you need it.
