Biography

Valerie is Course Leader of the BA (Hons) Design for Branded Spaces at the London College of Communication. This innovative course integrates interdisciplinary practices - brand communication, spatial experience design and scenography - to inform the design of immersive and interactive spaces. Previously, Valerie ran the BA (Hons) Spatial Design, the FdA Graphic and Spatial Communication and the Interior Design Diploma courses at LCC.

As Course Leader Valerie has gained extensive experience in teaching and curriculum developments. She also initiates collaborations with external partners - Southbank University acoustic lab, Southwest Trains, Team London Bridge and, in Singapore, The Foreign Design Policy Group - and develops international partnerships for the Design for Branded Spaces course with a network with universities across Europe and further afield in Indonesia, Australia and India.

Valerie's research interests are situated in spatial and sensory practices with a focus on atmospheres, sensing and wellbeing. In her work, she investigates ways to document and enrich our experience of spaces through practice-led research that integrates interdisciplinary practices to provide new understandings on ways in which spaces resonate with our senses. She is currently enrolled on a doctoral research degree at Central Saint Martins.
