Claire Ironside is a designer, artist, and educator who’s academic focus draws on her diverse history and practice in environmental, spatial, and communication design. Specializations within her core area include visualizing data/information as a form of storytelling, parametric and systems-based design, and advancing sustainability and entrepreneurship through curriculum design and community involvement and collaboration.

Her creative practice focuses on the design of objects, installations, experiences, and processes which co-exist at the intersection of design, art, craft – to engage in new and emerging forms of trans-disciplinary cultural production and partnership. Before teaching, she worked professionally as an urban designer and landscape architect in both the public and private sectors.
