Crim Collective founded in 2006 by Senior Lecturer Paul Heys is a University based group of designers leading national and international projects. The collective has a pedagogical focus in developing an academic and industry integrated experience, highlighting innovative learning techniques in an attempt to challenge the way art and design related subjects are taught. This offers a series of non-assessable workshop experiences and together with noted industry-led practitioners encourages a greater understanding of the individual and collective creative practice.
The intent of this website is to create a positive working environment and promote studio culture, with a reinforcing of student ownership. The collective champion students and staff within the School of Art, Design and Architecture to communicate through adapted principles of design learning, working along side industry and alumni — engaging with a community beyond the course. This website acts as a support mechanism, encouraging the collective to exceed the psychical and discover a studio culture ‘without walls’ connecting with an ever-growing global community offering the highest level of practice based learning.
To date the Crim are an internationally noted collective producing work for galleries, bars, fashion boutiques and film. It also supports national and international educational programmes celebrating integrated art and design practice.
