Marco Scerri is a graphic designer and teaching fellow. He currently leads the stage 3 year group on the BA (Hons) Graphic Design programme at Edinburgh College of Art. He completed his undergraduate degree in Visual Communication at ECA in 2009, with first class honours and subsequently gained an MA in Communication Design from Glasgow School of Art in 2012, graduating with a Distinction.
Marco was introduced to Graphic Design in his home country of Malta, by his father and late grandfather, both graphic designers. After working for a number of design studios and publishing houses in Malta, Italy and Scotland, he developed an interest in the wider contexts of Graphic Design, and its role as a critical practice. As a postgraduate student at Glasgow School of Art, Marco investigated the unfolding phenomenon of human migration in the Mediterranean region, using multiple media including photography, print, film and web. This work has led him to develop an interest in contemporary documentary practices within an art & design context, which he is exploring further in his academic role at Edinburgh College of Art.
Recent projects he has worked on include AHRC-funded Open University research project ‘Spiritualism in Stoke-on-Trent’ and Notes Journal, a Scottish artist-led review of photography, in its critical context.
