Kerry is Dean of the School of Communication at the Royal College of Art.

Kerry has extensive leadership experience in higher education. Prior to joining the RCA in April 2021, she was Head of Bath School of Design at Bath Spa University, leading teaching and curriculum innovation in disciplines both within and beyond the School of Communication’s portfolio. Kerry’s student-centred strategies ensure that students are challenged and supported in their practice and can thrive within a collaborative community of artists, communicators, designers and researchers. 

During Kerry’s RCA 1997 graduation show in MA Textiles, she was appointed as the new textile designer for Alberta Ferretti and subsequently worked in-house for Valentino and Nina Ricci. Kerry has a wealth of industry experience delivering high-profile collaborations with the British Council, Indian Design Council and through the development of textiles for brands such as Chloé, Stella McCartney, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin and Fendi. Kerry has also created work for music videos, illustration, styling and exhibition curation. 

Kerry’s current research focuses on design approaches to disaster responses, with experience of working on participatory scenarios related to climate change in her project Imagining Neutopia, which fabricates and documents fictional events to further Climate Change discourse.
