Josh Read is the Course Leader for Foundation Diploma (Art and Design) specialising in Graphic Communication. He is a senior academic that has taught for 20 years on a wide range of academic levels. Before becoming a teacher he worked on games magazines, informative PC and Windows magazines as well as flyers, posters and specialist literature for a variety of well-known names such as Sony, Nintendo and Universal Studios, which has given him a wide base of practical and real world of skills to pass on to others.
Josh has a passion for urban art, fashion and typography and has run several community events in graffiti and graffiti stencilling. This led on to an interest in screen printing and how images can be used over reclaimed waste materials to create beauty in the mundane, work which he exhibited in the Metamorphosis exhibition in 2018.
