Lisa Winstanley is an Assistant Professor in the School of Art Design and Media. For the past decade she worked internationally as a design educator, however her academic career is also underpinned by over 20 years of commercial experience; working in the UK as a creative practitioner and design consultant.

As a visual communicator, Lisa’s work has won many prestigious industry awards including, The World Wide Logo Design Awards (WOLDA) 2019 Gold Award and most recently her branding work has been awarded as one of the top 25 Graphic Designs of 2019 in the International Creative Quarterly best 100 Annual.

Lisa’s current research reviews the links between design and trust focussing on two concomitant areas: ethical design practice and collaborative design practice and academic publications include investigations into facilitating production & publication of international, collaborative creative practice by fostering a culture of creative trust and preventing visual plagiarism to cultivate a culture of academic trust.

Research Statement

My research reviews the links between design and trust focussing on two concomitant areas: ethical design practice and collaborative design practice. I am interested in investigating multidisciplinary collaborations which allow us to work together as a society, to produce human-centric design solutions for society. My research reviews what tools can help facilitate such collaborations and what systems need to be in place for effective and ethical collaboration to transpire.
