Visiting Speaker: Award-winning set & costume designer Philip Witcomb
This week, the Production Design for Stage and Screen department are looking forward to welcoming award winning Set and Costume designer and alumni student Philip Witcomb.
Philip began his design career studying Theatre Crafts with us at The Northern School of Art before heading to Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London.
Philip Witcomb is a prolific and versatile Set and Costume designer nominated for multiple ‘Best Design’ awards both nationally and internationally. With over twenty years experience, Philip has designed over 70 productions, globally across every scale, from intimate studio theatres to opera house stages and from multi venue tours to large scale open-air productions. His designs have an epic and operatic sense of scale and ambition with a central emphasis on visual story-telling.
We are thoroughly looking forward to welcoming Philip to The Northern School of Art.
