Paul Bailey

Paul Bailey is an Irish graphic designer and lecturer based in London. His practice meanders between education, research and design.
Upon graduating from the MA Communication Design at Central Saint Martins (2008), Paul became Course Director, BA (Hons) Graphic Design, South Essex College (2008-10) and has since worked as Lead Tutor FdA/BA (Hons) Design for Graphic Communication, London College of Communication, UAL.
Paul continues to pursue his research concerning the book and has been invited to present his published findings at universities, conferences and specialised research forums throughout the UK and Europe. This independent research output has received numerous awards, support and recognition (ISTD, HETAC, Stationers’ & Newspaper Makers Award and more).
Paul has also been commissioned to collaborate with various artists and designers in a range of capacities. Recent engagements include a performance at Circa 1960 exhibition, London, with the artist Jimmy Merris and a commission from the arts magazine folio, to publish his first book entitled, ‘A Place is a Space We Give Meaning’ available throughout Europe.
In addition to this, Paul is also director and co-founder of the occasional design studio, We Draw Lines, working with the clients such as the V&A, Central Saint Martin’s and the British Council. The studio have exhibited at the London Design Festival on numerous occasions and have recently presented a talk concerning ‘occasional practice’ at Drop Everything Arts and Culture Festival, Ireland.

‘IN | SIGHT | OVER’ builds upon existing research concerning the physical nature of the book form, with a particular focus upon the impact of new reading environments and it’s consequent developments. This body of work begins to explore the current shift in hierarchy between the conventions of reading and watching.
