Three Generations of Maltese Graphic Design

Wednesday 19th September 2018

Salvu, Joseph and Marco Scerri – three graphic designers from one Maltese family. This untold story of a family and its design history will look at the discipline of graphic design from the mid-1950s till now, through a selection of graphic works produced by the Scerri family, in Malta and abroad.

Marco Scerri is a graphic designer and lecturer. He studied Visual Communication at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating with a BA (Hons) degree in 2009, and gained an MA in Communication Design from Glasgow School of Art in 2012. Marco was introduced to graphic design, in his home country of Malta, by his father Joseph and late grandfather Salvu – both graphic designers. After working for a number of design studios and publishing houses in Malta, Italy and Scotland, he developed an interest in the wider contexts of graphic design, and its role as a critical practice. He is a part-time lecturer in graphic design at Edinburgh College of Art at the University of Edinburgh. He currently lives and works in Glasgow.
