Paul Allen MA, BA, DTLLS

Graphic Design Lecturer


I joined the department of Art & Design at Sheffield Hallam University in 2022. Prior to this I taught on undergraduate graphic design programmes validated by Liverpool John Moores University, Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Salford. I run a successful freelance practice with an international client base, including editorial, branding and information design for medical publishing in Asia, North and South America and extensively throughout Europe.


Whilst my commercial practice exists in grown up (and sometimes creatively limited) spaces, I’m particularly interested in design as expression and enjoy exploring, with students, the multitude of ways to create original images which ask questions of the viewer.
