Trevor is Principal Lecturer and Teaching Fellow at the School of Design. He teaches on the BA (Hons) 3D Programme and was Head of Design between 2016-2018. Trevor’s background is that of a practicing designer who having first graduated as a silversmith went on to complete a Masters in Industrial Design.
He established his first business partnership and studio in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter in 1992. Trevor’s work explores how the use of narrative, design and industrial craft manufacture can be combined as methods by which the value and meaning of everyday, utilitarian products or ‘tools’ can be better understood.
