My research critically analyses the role of graphic objects as urban objects, positioned at the multidisciplinary interface between design studies, visual culture and urban geography. The focus is on how urban graphic objects contribute to the identity, structure and meaning of cities, undertaken from the perspective of graphic design as urban design. Essentially, I explore questions about the relationship between graphic form and urban context. I am a peer reviewer for the International Journal of Design, The Design Journal, the Journal of Research Practice, and Third Text, and an editorial board member for the journals Communication Design and The Poster. This adds to book, conference and research grant review activity for Bloomsbury Academic, DRS, DRS/Cumulus, IASDR, and AHRC.
