Mr Mark Wood


SENIOR PROFESSIONAL TUTOR IN GRAPHIC DESIGN
Fine Art, Design and Film and Visual Culture

woodm@hope.ac.uk

I work across a broad range of graphic design, touching on fine art, and photography. Sharing such interdisciplinary ideas help aspiring graphic designers develop the skills and intellectual rigour that operating at the highest levels of creativity demand. Throughout my career I have worked on diverse range of design and art projects, from communication design and photography, to community and public art; writing marketing scripts, designing page layouts, creating logos, making interactive books, websites, videos, and posters.


Research interests include exploring multi-touch book authoring; using the unique characteristics of tablet devices such as iPads to host interactive learning experiences. Though at heart I am a printmaker and value the tactile qualities of print on paper.
