Anne Odling-Smee

Director of Design Science

Following a degree in Typography & Graphic Communication at the University of Reading, Anne worked at two leading London design agencies before setting up first O-SB Design (2001) and then Design Science.


A decade later, in recognition of the lack of design being applied to science, education and healthcare she founded Design Science.


Anne has 18 years’ teaching experience through visiting lecturer positions at the Royal College of Art, Central Saint Martins and Camberwell College of Arts in London, and at Konstfack University in Stockholm. She has lectured widely in Poland.


Anne is author of The New Handmade Graphics (RotoVision 2003), a book about graphic designers mixing analogue with digital processes or materials as a way of removing or reducing their dependence on the computer. She has written for Eye magazine, Phaidon, Cheltenham Science Festival, the Wellcome Trust, the British Science Association and the British Council.
