My aim is to enable students to reach their potential and empower them to explore and develop skills which will eventually prepare them for industry and for further studies.

What I offer:

  • Teaching with a focus on design fundamentals

  • Tailored lesson plans and a well-structured curriculum

  • Objective and qualified assessment of work and skill level

  • Guidance on how to best showcase and present work and skills

  • Advice on how to edit, organise and prioritise work

  • Portfolio and application preparation

 

Please get in touch if you want a private lesson, guest-lecture or workshop.

My role as a design academic is to teach the fundamentals of the design process through theory and hands-on practice. I guide students through specific subjects giving them the tools to discover how to make informed design decisions. The subjects include;

 

  • Research Methods

  • Design Strategy

  • Business Models

  • Sustainability

  • Generating Ideas

  • Hand Sketching

  • Concept Design

  • Model Making

  • Feedback

  • Design Refinement

  • Prototyping

  • Presentations

 

These subjects help establish a balance between exploring current design ideologies and creating an environment where students have the confidence to experiment with new ideas and improve their hands-on practical skills.
