Personal profile

Research interests

Allyson Waller is both a lecturer and practising graphic designer. Her passion and fascination with the subject of visual communication naturally leads her to want to engage people in conversations about it. Facilitating and designing opportunities for students to learn and get excited about design is at the heart of Ally’s practice.

She graduated from Central Saint Martins School of Art with a BA (Hons) Graphic Design degree and from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Communication Art & Design. She has freelanced for reputable design studios in both San Francisco and London.

Alongside her teaching practice Allyson works  under the title ‘AW-Projects’, working on a project by project basis. Either by inventing the content and authoring the work herself or by realizing the content with her collaborators.

Allyson's research practice is focused around using both her skills as a designer and lecturer. In 2019 she co-founded 'Collectarium' with Dr Sophie Beard. Collectarium is a publishing platform that creates and documents design activities that engage audiences' exploriation of archives and collections.
