The Centre for Fine Print Research has a strong track record of successful PhD and Mphil completions. Our doctoral programme provides a thriving intellectual community, with students from around the world researching aspects of multi-disciplinary fine print. We are home to an expanding network of postgraduate researchers, engaged in a distinctive practice-based research culture. We are committed to the development and training of a new generation of interdisciplinary practitioner-researchers, who will critically engage across multiple disciplines including the fine arts, crafts, design and science fields. The research team at CFPR provide a platform for diverse and challenging research aimed at making a mark in the scholarly, scientific and artistic communities. Although our research is primarily initiated from a visual perspective, it is inexorably linked to industrial development and new technologies and you will engage with a range of companies and institutions. We expect research students to take a full and active role in the Research Centre including taking part in regular workshops, conferences and seminars.

Research interests within the CFPR include, but are not limited to; 3D rapid prototyping, Colour, 2.5D print, Artists’ Books and the role of materials and craft skills in the digital design arena.
