Poster design by A E Halliwell, 1924

A E Halliwell was a design educationist, who taught in higher education from the mid 1930's until the 1960's. The collection includes Halliwell's own work as a student and later at the Royal College of Art, his work as a professional graphic designer in Britain in the 1930's, and the work of students he taught at Camberwell School of Art and the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London. This includes original designs for publicity posters, etc. from around the 1920's to 1940's and material illustrating graphic and industrial design work by students at Camberwell College of Arts and Crafts and Central School of Art and Design, as well as paintings by Halliwell and his wife.

The Halliwell Collection is part of the National Arts Education Archive (Trust), which is based at Bretton Hall and was established in 1985 to preserve documentary trace developments in art, craft and design education from the last century to the present.

This was achieved by collecting letters and works of students and key educators as well as those of artists. This collection is just one of over 70 which are held by the NAEA, and it was digitised alongside the Basic Design Collection as part of the JISC Image Digitisation Initiative (JIDI).
