Professional Experience 

Abby Nocon, Support Worker 2022-ongoing

Abby is a neurodivergent artist, writer, and creative strategist. As her support worker I assist in a range of ways with her process including creative development, writing funding applications, prioritising and managing tasks, providing accountability, and artistic research.

 

University of the Arts London CCW,

Associate Lecturer 2021-ongoing

As an associate lecturer I work with undergraduate students across the Graphic Design programme at Camberwell College of Art. My work here has included devising and running workshops thinking through writing as design practise, writing briefs, giving talks about my work, and proving both one to one and group tutorials on and offline keeping students on track with both practice based work and final year dissertations. I am currently carrying out an Equality, Inclusion and Diversity funded research project developing a student-facing resource about accessibility and self-publishing.

 

Access Power Visibility (APV), Designer 2020-ongoing

APV (an abbreviation of Access, Power & Visibility) are a London-based collective addressing issues around Disability Justice in the UK by exploring notions of radical accessibility, the relationship between power and presence, and accessibility as concept and medium. Formed by designer and educator Arjun Harrison-Mann, artist and producer Benjamin Redgrove and myself, we are currently working on a long term project with Healing Justice Collective Uk called Deaths by Welfare.

 

Sticky Fingers Publishing, Publisher 2019-ongoing

Sticky Fingers Publishing is an intra-dependant feminist publishers run my myself and Sophie Paul from our studio in Elephant & Castle. Working with mostly queer, femme & disabled writers, Sticky Fingers is a site for experimental feminist methodologies, print-based self-indulgences, and publishing work that feels too fragile, terrifying or messy to be published elsewhere. In addition to publishing we provide consultation sessions, Risograph print services, workshops and talks. Sophie & I share all tasks from writing & editing to design & printing to finance management to marketing.

 

Sick Magazine, Graphic Designer 2019-ongoing

Currently in its fourth issue, Sick is a magazine by chronically ill and disabled people founded and edited by Olivia Spring. It brings together essays, articles, prose, poetry and visual art together in dynamic issues which think through the varied and complex experiences of disability. I have been the graphic designer for Sick since its inception, developing a bold, colourful, and typographically led visual identity.
