Course Leader, Visual Communication BA(Hons) (Online)

Multidisciplinary Graphic Artist and Course Leader for BA(Hons) Visual Communication (Online) Sarah Langford is passionate about visual communication and how we learn. Sarah's work has been exhibited internationally, and most recent work and research is published in Illustration Research Methods, Bloomsbury 2021.

With an interest in how designers and illustrators can use their skills to help others, Sarah's most recent projects have involved working with students and professionals from different disciplines to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and skill sharing between designers, illustrators and students from other specialist subjects.

Sarah is passionate about build students' confidence, networks, and industry awareness through activities built into the curriculum. Over the past decade she has helped to connect and create opportunities for students at Anorak Magazine, Studio Makgill, XL Recordings, The Private Press, and G F SMITH plus many others.

An annual event that Sarah set up is called Future Selves which aims to develop employability skills, community, and perspective for students. An archive of the event including students work can be found on the Future Selves Instagram link below.
