Bio

Lisa is a Professor and Coordinator of the Communication Design program at the Metropolitan State University of Denver. She earned a BFA in Communication Design from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1991 and an MFA in Graphic Design from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1995. Seeking a balance between design research and classroom pedagogy, Lisa works across disciplines in order to embrace what can be broadly referred to as community-based design focused on issues of social equity towards marginalized audiences. This area of study manifested in a multi-year research endeavor culminating in the international design exhibition, “Substance: Diverse Practices from the Periphery,” which Lisa curated, organized and designed. Extending the spirit of the “Substance” exhibition, Lisa’s research continues to focus on design that addresses under-served people, places and problems. She is a founding member of SEED®: Social, Economic, Environmental Design and co-author of the SEED Evaluator tool. Lisa is a regular contributor and an educational leader for the Public Interest Design Institute. In her professional practice, Lisa promotes projects for culture and collaboration through her firm culture / language / dialogue (www.culturelanguagedialogue.com). A result of her diverse research practices, Lisa has presented, exhibited, and published nationally and internationally.
