Hi, my name is Joanne Lush and I am a designer and educator.

I have over 14 years experience as a professional designer, and in that time I have worked for large agencies, small design studios, private clients and other design professionals.

I have also been teaching design at a tertiary level for over 10 years as a Course Leader at the Media Design School (Auckland, New Zealand), where I lecture in a variety of design fields (Graphic Design, Web Design, Digital Video, Creativity and Ideation, etc.).

I also carry out research on a regular basis, and am currently researching gamification, and in particular the gamification of education. I am presently working on the design of an app for the teaching and learning of typography.

This blog was created as a more creative, accessible means of doing research. I also wanted to do something that could be seen by a larger audience, as well as being open to feedback.
