Currently based in Lyttelton, a small port town on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island, Luke works as a freelance graphic designer, lecturer, and musician. Luke graduated from University of Canterbury’s School of Fine Arts (NZ) in 1997, and completed a Masters in Design at RMIT (Melbourne) in 2006. An interest in practitioner-oriented writing and independent publishing evolved from his postgraduate research, motivating and informing the foundation of The National Grid project. Luke is co-editor of The National Grid with Jonty Valentine. Under various pseudonyms Luke spends too much time playing guitar in local surf band The Damned Evangelist.
