Mr Paul Postle


I am the Course Leader for the Graduate Diploma in Creative Practice.

My professional background is as a commercial photographer with 30 years of experience working across the publishing, editorial and the music industries.

Career highlights include working on the film No Distance Left to Run; as well as the exhibition, albums, singles, merchandising and book for Blur. This compliments my design practice which focuses on hand-crafted lettering in contemporary sub cultures.
