IMG_9963Louise is a design researcher at the University of Dundee, Scotland. As the first doctoral student at the University of Dundee to embark on a PhD focusing on the practice of designing and the experience of being a designer (1999), she has also successfully completed two part-time post-doctoral positions (2005-10, 2010-12) while being a Principal or Co-Investigator on six funded research projects (since 2007). She is editor of ‘Prototype: design and craft in the 21st Century’ (2013, Bloomsbury), Associate Editor of The Design Journal (Bloomsbury) and co-editor of ‘Past, Present and Future Craft Practice’ (2010, NMS Ltd). In November 2003 she gained her PhD which investigated how we communicate design as, 1) a concept development process, 2) a concurrent process of learning and problem solving, and 3) a meta-language – specifically, the way a designer uses visual thinking, intuition and technology to conceive ideas and solve problems. Since then, she has continued to investigate and communicate the value of design and designers.

  1. Dear Dr. Louise Valentine

    I was trying to get in contact with you regarding a publication request for an exhibition catalogue about Bauhaus and the role of crafts and would be very pleased if you could imagine to contribute to that book. I sent my request a couple of weeks ago. Looking forward to hear from you.
    With kind regards
