Jeremy Myerson began his professional life as a journalist on The Stage newspaper before going on to edit a number of art and design titles including Design (published by the Design Council), Creative Review, V&A Magazine and World Architecture. From 1986-89, he was founding editor of Design Week, the world's first weekly news magazine for designers and their clients.
In 1999, following a decade running his own research and editorial consultancy Design Intermedia, he set up the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design with Roger Coleman – and he subsequently played a lead role at the RCA in establishing the InnovationRCA network for business and the Design London joint venture with Imperial College London uniting design, engineering and business.
Jeremy Myerson is the author of 18 books and has curated many national design exhibitions including Doing A Dyson at the Design Museum and Rewind: 40 years for Design and Advertising at the V&A.
His research explores the areas of inclusive design, workplace design and healthcare design in an interdisciplinary way. He was Principal Investigator on the DOME (Designing Out Medical Error) project in partnership with Imperial College London, and on the i~design3 study in partnership with the Engineering Design Centre at Cambridge University looking at ways to help designers work more closely with users. Both projects were funded by the EPSRC.
In January 2012 he joined the AHRC-funded knowledge exchange hub, The Creative Exchange, as Co-Investigator in partnership with Lancaster and Newcastle Universities. In autumn 2013 he began a lead role in setting up the new HELIX (Healthcare Innovation Exchange) Centre, Europe’s first design-led innovation centre inside a working hospital, as a joint venture between RCA and Imperial College.
Jeremy Myerson holds arts degrees from the University of Hull and the Royal College of Art.
