His work is driven by an ongoing research of contemporary visual culture, with a keen focus on the aesthetics of urgency associated with news reporting. In both traditional and unconventional means of communication, his work abstracts meaning through a bold and layered process that integrates subtleties of information through colour and pattern. Through collaborations and experiments, Ward seeks to expand the boundaries of his discipline by exploring new formats, with a body of work that covers digital, printed, and three dimensional media.
In addition to independent research projects, Ward has worked on a number of commissioned projects across the cultural and commercial fields. His skills include print design and developing visual identities, alongside print-making, art-direction, installation, and way-finding in relation to spatial design. He has worked with a variety of clients, such as the Technical University of Eindhoven, MU Artspace, Kaan Architects, Design Academy Eindhoven, Effenaar, Onomatopee, Volkshotel Amsterdam and Creative Coding Utrecht. Since 2016 Ward is a tutor in both master and bachelor departments at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
