This is the personal site of Joyce S R Yee (@jsheau). I am a designer and researcher in the field of visual communication design. It is a reflection of my professional interest, which is to practice design informed by in-depth enquiry using established and innovative design research methods. Occasionally, I will be adding more content to the website, relating to design methods and teaching resources. My other love includes typography and this is evident in my continued exploration of the subject through my MA work at Central Saint Martins, and later on in my PhD work.

I am currently a Senior Lecturer at the Northumbria University’s School of Design, teaching across undergraduate and postgraduate levels. My background is Visual Communication and I have over 10 years working experience in wide range of academic and professional environments. I have been publishing regularly since 2003 and my research is bound by a common theme of exploring and identifying how designers develop and improve their own practice. You can view my design, teaching and research practices in the subsequent pages of this site.
