HOD Graphic Design Jonty Valentine Interview with Design Assembly

Whitecliffe Head of Department Graphic Design - Jonty Valentine is featured on Design Assembly's By Day/By Night 2016 series. In his interview, he talks about about his background, teaching, research, creative projects and best bits about working at Whitecliffe:

 "...We as educators are not tasked to merely train our students to enter a narrowly imagined commercial industry; we have a higher calling (without meaning to sound too televangelical). My students are not just doing projects that emulate some contrived idea of current industry conditions. Courses that do that usually conflate stylistic trends with actual innovation. Rather my students do projects that are more essentially about the sphere graphic design and exploring its changing role in society. About testing and questioning graphic design’s ability to help translate, disseminate, and communicate messages in an engaging way. And this transcends short-term vocational aims." - Jonty Valentine
