Ms Emily Wood

Acting Course Leader, BA Graphic Design


I think that graphic design can change the world; well as least have a part to play. As visual communicators we have great power to distribute messages and information to the world. With that power comes responsibility and through my teaching and my own practice I hope to make a positive impact on people's lives.

I studied BA Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins, where I met Ruth Sykes, with whom I set up REG design after having worked for Pentagram, Johnson Banks and Bloom Design. Since founding REG we have combined our design work with our teaching practice at CSM, and Kingston School of Art. We integrate our interest in design for social change; including identity and exhibition design, into our teaching practice.

I am a fellow of the HEA, and completed a PGCert in 2012, with research into inclusivity, peer assessment and sustainability. Currently studying MA Academic Practice.
