About

This site contains the designs and research outcomes related to the Arts and Humanities Council (ARHC) funded project ‘Lifting the Lid on Bacteria’.

The project uses ambient design (site-specific designs) to improve hand hygiene in school toilets. It is led by Dr Catherine Stones, Associate Professor in Graphic Design at the School of Design, University of Leeds.

If your school or organisation would like to help us trial the designs or if you’d like further information about the project please email Catherine Stones on c.m.stones@leeds.ac.uk
