Jeremy Myerson is a writer, editor and academic specialising in the study of the work of designers in relation to social and technological change. A graduate of Hull University and the Royal College of Art, he began his working life on The Stage newspaper before forging a career in design journalism during the 1980. From 1986-89, he was Founding Editor of Design Week, the world's first weekly newsmagazine for designers and their clients.

For much of the 1990s, he worked as an independent author, researcher and curator in design, often with the aim of linking design industry developments to those in higher education. He achieved this initially through a series of design education research reports for professional bodies (CNAA, Design Council, RSA, RIBA etc) and then as Professor of Contemporary Design at De Montfort University 1995-98.

In 1999, he was invited to return to the Royal College of Art as Co-Director of the Helen Hamlyn Research Centre - its focus as a catalyst for socially inclusive design reflecting much of his own writing, research and exhibition curation. His many books include The Creative Office, New Public Architecture, Making The Lowry, a study of a major Millennium design project in response to social change, and Design Renaissance, an edited collection of essays setting out humanist and inclusive agenda for design.
