About

I am the Leader of Design Programmes and Senior Lecturer at the Elam School of Fine Arts, in the Faculty of Creative Arts and Industries, at the University of Auckland. I have a Doctorate in Development Studies and a Masters in Industrial Design. Originally from South Africa, I worked for 18 years as a design academic at the University of Johannesburg. My university lecturing, practice-based research and freelance design experience is passionately focused on local and sustainable innovation at the complex nexus of social, technological and ecological systems.

Projects

Practice

“My projects are a village.” – Susan Wakhungu-Githuku

I am a designer and a pragmatist: I have a desire to change existing situations for the better whilst being conscious that this is relative; and, as per Dewey’s pragmatic philosophy, I understand that knowledge and practice are intertwined and inseparable.

A core outcome of the interconnection between my practice and research was my co-founding of the Design Society Development (DSD) Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability (DESIS) Lab in FADA, UJ in 2014. The lab not only promotes practice-based design research in our faculty but also creates an opportunity for staff and students to refine their research amongst peers.  As one of 53 international DESIS labs based at design schools, it is a place for transdisciplinary and international practice-based design research engagement. As per my interests in contextually relevant design research, I currently lead the DSD DESIS Lab’s LOCAL Design in the Global South focus area.

Past practice has included,  my co-founding of the Izindaba Zokudla (Conversations about Food) project focused on innovation in Soweto’s food system, and my role as a non-executive board member of the Museum of African Design (MOAD), before it closed in 2017.

The Industrial Design industry in South Africa, and hence what I teach and practice, is extremely broad. Being a generalist allows me to have a wide understanding of multiple facets of design practice and is important to help navigate the constant change of the 21st Century.  I’ve continued to undertake industrial design freelance work whilst being an academic, however in the last few years, most of my professional industrial design work has inherently been integrated into practice-based research projects. Past freelance design work has included the following clients: SAB Miller (SA), Jacqueline Rabun (UK), MacMillan Publishing (UK), WAACS (NL) and Phumani Paper (SA).

Education

The more I learn, the more I realise how much I don’t know.” – Albert Einstein

During my entire academic career, I have continued to learn. My Master’s in Industrial Design (Technikon Witwatersrand, 2003) is titled Developing new stylistic possibilities for African product design inspired by African cultural heritage and foregrounded my transdisciplinary Doctorate in Development Studies (University of Johannesburg, 2021) titled Designing development: Technology innovation by small-scale urban farmers in Johannesburg.

I have taught in the field of Industrial Design firstly as a part-time Lecturer at the Technikon Witwatersrand (2001-2003), then as a Lecturer (2003-2009) and finally as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Johannesburg (2010-) after its merger with the aforementioned institution in 2005. I have taught across the majority of modules and year groups in the Department and currently am the Postgraduate Coordinator (MA Industrial Design, MA Design and PhD in Art & Design).

Multiple students have been awarded under my lectureship in national and international competitions including the Good Design Award (2019); Association of Rotational Moulders of Southern Africa (ARMSA) Student Design Award (2005, 2007, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015); the Plastics Institute of Southern Africa (PISA) Student Design Award (2004, 2006, 2008, 2012, 2013, 2015); The Eco Design Competition (2011, 2012); Designboom Seoul International Design Competition (2010); Eskom Energy Efficient Lighting Design Competition (2010); INDEX: AIGA Aspen Design Challenge: Designing Water’s Future (2009); and DESIGN 21: Social Design Network: Power to the Pedal (2008).
