Graphic Design Work Pty Ltd

Stuart Geddes is a graphic designer working mostly with books. Stuart is also a lecturer, researcher and PhD candidate at RMIT University, where his research interests converge around the form of the book, through collaboration, emerging histories, and material practices. In Stuart’s practice, the book is a medium of primary focus, and the exploration of book design as a discursive practice is a primary idea—how books come to exist out of a complex set of relationships, and how books then operate as actors in the world.

Together with Žiga Testen, Stuart is part of Graphic Design Work Pty Ltd, a design studio focused on book design and publishing for arts and culture. Stuart’s work has been collected and exhibited internationally including at the Design Museum London and the Walker Art Center. In 2016, his practice was the subject of a Reputations profile in Eye Magazine, and in 2020, with Trent Walter of Negative Press, Stuart was an invited artist of the 22nd Biennale of Sydney.
