Biography Peter Buwert is a graphic design lecturer and researcher whose work focusses on the ethical dimensions and implications of visual communication design.
His PhD, completed in 2016 through Gray's School of Art, is entitled "Ethical Design: A Foundation for Visual Communication" and presents the case that design is by its very nature a foundationally ethical activity.
Research is currently focussing on connections between aesthetics, ethics and politics in society, exploring possibilities through which visual communication design could support and maintain a "blind-spot culture" which casts light on those areas of society which we systematically overlook and fail to address.
