director of the field school

Russell is a designer who approaches design as a holistic activity and practice. Today, most of his students go into the digital design field, specifically in user experience design, a discipline he is deeply invested in, along with visual design. As design is a holistic activity and practice, he has taught his students that as digital space shifts, the need to pivot to new spaces of innovation is crucial. Russell's background is architecture and graphic design. He is passionate about design that is centred in and respectful of culture, and design that is made to sustain.
