During a long career in magazines, Grant has been editor of Blueprint, deputy editor of FX, and acting executive editor of the RIBA Journal. More recently he has been editor of Crafts and a contributing editor of the Dutch architecture title MARK. He was also the launch editor of the London Design Festival Guide and co-founded Real to Reel, the UK’s first film festival devoted to making.

In 2014 he curated, Space Craft: Architecture Meets Making, at the Platform Gallery on London’s King’s Road, which subsequently went on to tour nationwide, and in 2019 he launched the critically acclaimed podcast series Material Matters with Grant Gibson.

Grant was made an honorary fellow of the Royal College of Art in 2011 and is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

‘Grant is one of the most professional, passionate, and intelligent people I have had the pleasure of meeting. His love for craft and design is the perfect antidote to the cynics who abound in London, and it helps that he is so wonderfully, genuinely personable. Whatever he does, from podcasts to magazines to exhibitions, are always done to almost impossibly high, perfectionist standards, and I always look forward to what he’s up to next.’
