Depth of Field 2020-21.

An online public lecture series that aims to question some of the most prevelent issues faced within the Graphic Communication Design industry. Coordinated by myself and others, we invite two guest speakers to present their unique perspectives and engage in a live Q&A discussion. The 2020/2021 series included speakers such as Kelly Walters and Gemma Copeland, in addition to organisations such as NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Climate Outreach, Design Observer and Thames & Hudson.

This project could not have happened without Rebecca Ross (Project Leader), Jacob Watmore (Events Coordinator), and Jake Dow-Smith (Web Designer).
