Ms Clare Conway

Senior Lecturer


I am a design practitioner and senior lecturer on the BA(Hons): Art Direction, Design Marketing and Curation courses; and lead tutor on MA: Illustration and Graduate Diploma Creative Practice: Illustration. 

I began at Macmillan as Design Studio Manager, then moved to Emap as Deputy Creative Director. I co-founded Redcow Creative (now Surgery Redcow) a brand strategy and creative agency. Clients include Thomson Reuters and The Economist. As a consultant, I specialise in branding, book and editorial design.

In 2014, I was visiting lecturer at Arts University Bournemouth on the Preparation for Higher Education: Graphic Design pathway, and have been lead tutor on MA Communication Design since 2015. 

In 2017, I founded The Storybox Collective, exploring archival research through collaborative making. Our first exhibition: Storybox: Tales of Absence, 'What ifs' and Salvation was inspired by the archives of Wilton's Music Hall - the world's oldest surviving Grand Music Hall
