About Charles Tait

Charles sees the role of designer as a key component in cross-disciplinary workflows. He is interested in researching the designer as an originator, author and social entrepreneur; modes that challenge a traditional ‘service industry’ perception. He led the Green Trolley project which explored many of these ideas focusing on the creation of a social project to encourage awareness of food production, foraging and local abundance. He has worked on visual identity, print, motion and digital projects in a freelance role, as well as self-publishing content for mobile devices.

He continues his interest in motion graphics working on self-initiated projects and exploring the use of motion and dynamic brand behaviour.

In 2012 research into how course identity can foster student engagement and belonging - promoting recruitment and retention - resulted in a paper presented to conferences at Teesside and Newcastle Universities.
