Ben Atkins is a Lecturer and Module Leader within the Graphic Design team at University Campus Oldham. After graduating with a degree in Graphic Design from the University of Central Lancashire in 1992, Ben worked at a number of advertising and design agencies in London and the North West for almost 16 years. This allowed him to develop his love of creative thinking whilst producing award-winning outcomes to briefs, both printed and digital, for a number of national and international clients.
In 2009, Ben took up a post as a Lecturer at Blackpool and The Fylde College, teaching students on the BA (Hons) Graphic Design and BA (Hons) Illustration programmes, as well as delivering Contextural Studies lectures and seminars. Ben is experienced at teaching on all three years of the Graphic Design degree, and the industry experience he has acquired over the past 25 years, and continues to develop today as a freelance practitioner, informs his practice and delivery, ensuring his teaching sessions are not only informative but also current and contemporary.
