As an experiential graphic designer who specializes in workplace and urban design, Lisa enhances interaction with physical spaces by integrating narratives and navigation cues into the environment. Whether working within the private or public sector, she aspires to build collaborative environments that promote discourse and build relationships. In order to be successful, she believes one must acknowledge and understand how perception of verbal and visual languages are affected by implicit biases. She was awarded the Cincinnati Design Award (CDA) Honor Award in 2017, the CDA Merit Award in 2019, and exhibited in in:sight: A showcase of excellence in strategy and creative risk in regional design and Brandemodium in 2017.
As an educator, Lisa has worked for over 10 years with young designers in both the secondary and collegiate levels who are being introduced to design methodology, technology, systems thinking, and professional practices. She has particular interest in harnessing the emotive qualities of social design to teach the fundamentals of design methodology, and has discussed her approach to teaching at the UCDA Academic Summit: Good Design Works. Her academic work has been published in Design Elements: Form & Space by Dennis M. Puhalla, Ph. D.
