Interdisciplinary artist, designer and researcher.
This is an archive website with older examples of Jack Hardiker’s work. We’re currently developing the ‘Office of Everyone’ studio website, featuring work from the past two years.
I work with both established and emergent artistic techniques to tell important stories in playful, memorable, and unexpected ways. Whether presented on a website, in a virtual environment or in a physical space, my work empowers audiences with the agency to affect outcomes.
As a Senior Digital Designer I have led global projects from inception to delivery for clients including the BBC, Orange and American Express. More recently, my work as an Artist and Creative Director has received organic press coverage, along with numerous award nominations.
I am an Associate Lecturer on the Digital Direction MA at the Royal College of Art, supporting a diverse group of UK and international students. The course addresses emerging issues in immersive digital communication and the creative economy.
