Matthew Galloway

Designer and writer Matthew Galloway is currently Lecturer in Communication Design at the Otago Polytechnic School of Design, Dunedin.

Since 2010 his work has been concerned with investigating the possibilities of self-initiated design projects. In 2011 he began publishing The Silver Bulletin, a semi-regular art and design publication, for which he fulfils the role of editor and designer. Writing also forms an important part of his practice, with many of his most recent articles and essays examining visual identities, the implications of branding and considering the role of critical or editorial design. He also has a commercial design practice with clients who include The Physics Room, Ramp Press, Adam Art Gallery and The New Zealand Film Archive.

In this workshop Galloway will focus on the relationship between design and writing and how the two inform and are dependent on each other. Also he will explore the notion that design is all about language and every formal decision we make as designers has implications as to how our work will be interpreted by the viewer. The workshop will focus specifically on Galloway’s ongoing project examining the role of identity and branding in Christchurch which has featured in The Silver Bulletin and at Ramp Gallery in 2013.
