Mr Carl Clerkin


I joined Kingston University as a senior tutor in Product and Furniture Design in 2013 after teaching at a number of other institutions over the years. I have worked primarily with level 5 and 6 students and enjoy the challenge of developing live projects and briefs that allow our students to understand and experience the broader opportunities available to them as graduating designers.     

As a fractional member of staff I am able to continue my practice as a designer on a number of exciting projects that include product development, exhibition design, public commissions and curating. Most recently I have co-curated "The Learned Society of Extra Ordinary Objects", an exhibition about design and real storytelling in The Terrace Rooms at Somerset House (2017).
