Mark leads our BA and MA Graphic Design courses at UCA Epsom.

Starting his academic life as a historian, Mark brings critical and longitudinal methods to design via his illustration practice, based in shared London design studios. Building on a History & Modern Languages MA from Trinity College, Oxford, he went on to gain a first class Graphic Design degree at Camberwell College of Art, followed by a PG Diploma in Illustration from St Martins School of Art, before moving into design teaching and course leadership.

Among other awards, he won first place in the MacMillan Prize for a Children’s Book, and has work in the Permanent Collection of the V&A Museum.

Mark's practice consists of thoughtful visual imagery and reflective writing used in a wide range of settings, extending out far beyond traditional illustration into exhibition graphics, public art, historical visual consultancy, and book arts and manufacture. Clients have included the Design Museum , Tower of London, Times Newspapers, Special Operations Executive, Royal Free Hospital, ING Bank.

Mark's graphic ideology is collaborative, often working with social graphic design agency LucienneRoberts+ and publishing venture GraphicDesign&, and does not accept constraints or boundaries to the situating of illustration and design as a practice. He works from a shared studio in London’s Brunswick Centre and is a member of a range of professional bodies, including the AOI - Association of Illustrators, DS - Design Society, IVLA - International Visual Literacy Association, PMC - Printmakers Council.
