Graphic Design and the Research Excellence Framework
In preparation for an educational research conference held at Sheffield Institute of Arts, entitled 'Graphic Design and the Research Excellence Framework', or 'GDREF', this collaborative project between three graphic designers visualises the constant state of flux graphic design research operates in, through the integration of a visual metaphor for 'joining the dots', fluctuating and warping meshes, and fluid type.
This project was formed of collaborative means, in association with CHEAD, the Graphic Design Educator's Network, and Sheffield Institute of Arts, in partnership with designers Alex Gore and Leanne Lloyd, and managed by James Corazzo.
