Neville Brody is set to leave his current position at the Royal College of Art (RCA) as dean of the School of Communication.

Brody will officially step down from the role on 1 September 2018, after seven years in the post.

The designer joined the RCA as dean in August 2011, and during his time there has remodelled all the existing programmes within the School of Communication. He has also launched two new courses, Information Experience Design (IED) and Digital Direction.

New role

Brody will continue to work at the RCA in his new role as professor of visual communication.

Brody says: “I have had seven great years as dean of the School of Communication, and I feel that this is the right moment for me to step aside, to allow a new person to take the school into the future.

“I am delighted that I can continue my association with the college in my new capacity as professor of visual communication. I want to express a huge thank you to all my colleagues in the school, staff and students for their enormous contributions to the ongoing success of the school.”

The RCA is searching for someone to replace Brody as dean.
