Hey! I’m Lisa.
Full-time lecturer in graphic design and arts: further education Level 1 – Level 3 and Pre-Degree Foundation Diploma.
I recently completed an MA in Creative Thinking, where my research looked in depth at whether creativity can be taught and/or enhanced in graphic design education. I continue to undertake personal research and have recently presented my work at the UK Creativity Researchers’ Conference 2018.
As well as exploring the psychology of creativity, I love producing mixed media design and absorbing knowledge of Adobe software that I can pass on to my students.
Prior to this I have lived abroad in Cyprus, been a digital designer for Burton Menswear, Arcadia, and undergone numerous projects as a freelance designer. I was awarded a First Class Honours Degree in Graphic Design back in 2013 and I am a qualified Adobe Certified Associate in Photoshop and InDesign.
“Lisa’s commitment to the study of creativity and the quality of work she has produced has been excellent. She has managed to achieve this level of quality whilst developing her teaching and graphic design work (which takes self-discipline and drive). If you get the chance to work with her, jump at the opportunity; she’s diligent and fun to work with (which is a great combination to have).”
– Karl K Jeffries (Senior Lecturer for MA Creative Thinking)
“Lisa is well organised and plans her time effectively and she’s also highly creative, working well to externally set briefs. Her design work has a lightness of touch. Lisa interacts well with people within the work/class environment. I recommend her work and her attitude highly.”
– Kate McLean (Senior Lecturer for BA Graphic Design)
“I have nothing but the highest praise. As a digital designer Lisa was super speedy, with no compromise made to the standard of her work. Lisa picked up our marketing briefs so quickly and has an excellent grasp on what is required for great digital design. I would not hesitate to recommend Lisa.”
– Laura Blake (Marketing Manager for Burton Menswear, Arcadia)
“…imaginative and unique designs that were perfectly on brief every time. She consistently went beyond what was asked of her, and her quick turn around and attention to detail has resulted in excellent promotional material for our community events. I would have no hesitation in using her again, and recommending her for freelance work.”
– Laura Moore (Client of Lisa Sloan Designs)
