Craig Oldham can pinpoint the exact moment when his career took a sharp turn for the better. Following a deflating exchange with his nan, he realised that laying out other people’s ideas simply wasn’t going to cut it.
Now operating out of his own Manchester-based studio, his practice has expanded beyond the realm of traditional graphic design to encompass teaching, curating and writing. In an environment that actively encourages learning, experimentation and “messing about”, the studio balances client work with self-initiated projects, including Craig’s much acclaimed book In Loving Memory of Work, documenting the UK Miners’ strike.
Craig’s talks come with a warning of strong language.
This talk is available online to anyone outside Sheffield Hallam University.
