Triggs will work alongside Neville Brody, who became dean of the School of Communication last year.

Naren Barfield, pro-rector (academic) at the RCA, says Brody and Triggs will work on ‘significant growth and development in research, knowledge exchange and new academic programmes’.

Brody says, ‘Teal’s appointment… marks an important and exciting juncture in how the school is positioned both in terms of our own internal forward direction and, externally, with our academic, research and industry partners.’

Triggs, who has also previously worked at Kingston University, Central Saint Martins and Ravensbourne, is set to join the RCA in September.

    when Teal was my tutor at CSM, i was disappointed by her conservatism and inability to engage in work that wasn’t academically literate.

    I wish her well though.

    I was fortunate enough to have worked with Teal at LCC during a collaborative project with Transport for London.

    My experience was absolutely fantastic, and in stark contrast to the other comment poster, Teal was very encouraging overall and always found time in her busy schedule – even for a quick impromptu chat.

    I wish her the best of luck and think the RCA are fortunate to have her as Dean.

    I am concerned that Mr Brody has a post in an educational establishment when his own degree (from LCP all of those years ago) was not competed successfully. In the next ‘open forum’ someone please ask Neville why he did not complete his studies at LCP – truth is, he didn’t simply leave (as is documented throughout the Brody myth), but he did not have the academic rigour to complete his studies – his thesis did not pass!
