Roger Marsh Product Design
United Kingdom - Yorkshire and the Humber
I have relinquished my salaried posts to pursue my own research and practice which is concerned with original image creation. While maintaining a strong interest in strategic professional design development having provided support, advice, and guidance to a variety of initiatives.
I have over thirty years experience delivering design educational programmes and ten years in design, concurrent art, media and performance educational management at FE and HE level. The above activities ran alongside my private practice offering a client centred professional service in a diverse range of graphic skill areas and media. Client organisations include national book and magazine publishers, commerce, public bodies and industry.
In addition I was a founder member of the Animal Craft partnership, established in 1975 to design, manufacture, promote and market handmade naturalistic fabric animals and birds to clients for promotion, display and retail sale outlets. The workshop consisted of an in-house trained team supported by a network of skilled makers. Clients included galleries, museums, zoos, trade bodies and conservation organisations both national and international. The Animal Craft portfolio contained an extensive range of products for volume sales and commissioned work. Products were exhibited at most national trade exhibitions as well as at the Design Centre London where they were Index listed.
