Who we are


Sue Breakell is Archivist and Archive Leader at the Design Archives, and a Senior Research Fellow. She co-leads the Museums, Archives, Exhibitions strand of the Centre of Design History. In line with the Design Archives’ principle of research-informed stewardship, her research engages with critical thinking about the nature, meaning and practice of archives, focussing on their use in visual arts contexts and in the history and practice of art and design.

Her research focuses on twentieth-century Britain and extends from changes in shopping processes and practices; histories of consumer education; domestic material environments; retail and display design; to the emergence of the industrial design profession.
