Eric Thompson

Eric has been a practicing designer and educator for the past 25 years and is committed to interdisciplinary, co-creative design and sense of place. He had his own design practice in London before returning to New Zealand where he concentrated on ensuring industry was a collaborative partner in the design and implementation of university courses. After working as a programme manager at Massey University’s Auckland School of Design he moved to the Media Design School and is now director of Innovation, Industry and Employability at the Billy Blue College of Design in Sydney; part of Torrens University. He is the catalyst for innovation and leads the development of the Design facility's industry relevant course portfolio (building external relationships with companies, agencies, associations and industry boards) to make sure Billy Blue meets the needs of not only the design industry, but business in general to ensure the employability of graduating students.
