"Guy Julier is the University of Brighton Principal Research Fellow in Contemporary Design at the Victoria & Albert Museum. This post is dedicated to developing and running a research programme that addresses contemporary issues in design that also links the museum, the university and professionals in the creative industries. He is author of New Spanish Design (1991), The Dictionary of Design since 1900 (1993; revised 2004) and The Culture of Design (2000; revised 2007). With Liz Moor of Goldsmiths, University of London, he co-edited Design and Creativity: Policy, Management and Practice (2009). In addition, he is on the editorial board of the Journal of Visual Culture and of the Journal of Design and Culture, and is London correspondent for the Madrid-based design journal Experimenta. From 2003 to 2010 he was Honorary Professor at Glasgow School of Art and in 2008 was the William Evans Visiting Fellow at the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand. With a strong interest in linking theory to practice, Guy Julier also seeks ways by which academics can work as advocates for environmental sustainability and social equality. To that end, he was a director of Leeds Love It Share It, 2008-10, a Community Interest Company made up of creative practitioners and academics dedicated to creating new scenarios and visions for how the city of Leeds could be in the future.

In his lecture Guy Julier will address the ascendancy of design since 1980. The economy of design has not just been about an increasingly pervasive consumer culture. An accumulation of economic turns has provided new territories and working practices for the designer. This talk opens a discussion about how we think about design in terms of value and where we could go next in terms of its economic processes. Everyone is invited to attend!"
