Matt Edgar

Design Educator

I previously worked for the BBC producing a variety of television and radio documentaries.

I co-designed and developed the Graphic Design degree course within the Department of Art and Design at Sheffield Hallam. I teach across the curriculum with a particular focus on developing holistic approaches to embedding history, theory and practice in delivery. 

I commission and curate exhibitions that address key issues within the discipline. These have included Ken Garland and Lance Wyman (with Unit Editions), Jan van Toorn, Universal Everything, and Why Not Associates. My MA is in Film and Television Documentary, resulting in current research that results in films that investigate the history of typography and design.
