Our Next Guest Speakers

Dr Claire Timpany – Senior Lecturer of Design, University of Waikato

Dr Claire Timpany is a Senior Lecturer in Design at the University of Waikato. She never planned on working at the University, instead wanting to work in branding, publication or interaction design, but she took a chance and discovered she enjoyed the combination of teaching and research. Her love of books, especially interactive books, the design of books, and the typography used in books, has led her into research how people interact with information.

The current focus of Claire’s research is how the typefaces we choose, and the way we visually show the structure of a document will impact how easy it is to access and understand the content. Lately this has specifically meant she has been exploring how best to emphasise headings within text to help people search for information.

In her teaching at the University she covers a range of areas; she runs the Internship programme, teaches Design History at first year and, and with the second year students teaches a course raising the awareness of cultural and social issues within design.

Jordan Foster – Lecturer, Wintec

Jordan is a designer turned lecturer at Wintec. His educational passion is driven by seeing his students come up with creative outputs to things that never thought they could before. He loves the meticulous attention to detail that designers need to have as well as the process of response in a collaborative environment.

His industry experience is broad. Having worked for a couple companies he decided that he enjoyed the freelancing environment the most as it gave him the freedom to work alongside clients in ways that he found engaging. His creativity doesn't have an off button, always focusing on creative projects on the side - he particularly enjoys working on books and the design of communication.
