Lisa Baumgarten (*1988, Frankfurt am Main) lives in Berlin and wears many hats. She was trained as Communication Designer at the Department of Design in Darmstadt, the University of Portsmouth (UK) and the Estonian Academy of Arts (EE), from 2008–2014.
As Art Director and Creative Consultant, she works for cultural institutions and corporate giants on analog and digital projects.
Lisa is a notorious question-asker. As a part-time student at Humboldt-University Berlin, she researches into feminist design theory and design pedagogies.
In 2019 she co-founded Teaching Design – a collectively gathered bibliography & conversational format focusing on design education from intersectional feminist & decolonial perspectives – together with Anja Neidhardt.
As design educator she focuses on pointing out scopes of action and empowering students to question and break through consolidated structures. Lisa gives lectures, organizes workshops, performs critical dialogs and – in the course of her teaching assignment at the HFK Bremen in Integrated Design – reflects with students on appropriation in Typography.
