Lisa Baird

Lisa Baird is a UX designer and design-strategist with a passion for new-venture design. Lisa started her career in investment banking before eventually joining design consultancy IDEO in 2012. Lisa began her own practice in 2016 and now does work for IDEO, among other design studios, as an independent consultant.

Lisa earned her MBA from the University of California, Berkeley and her Master of Design from the California College of the Arts. She earned her bachelor’s degree in finance as well as a bachelor’s degree in journalism from The University of Texas at Austin. ​She occasionally writes for Fast Company on topics like the future of work. She lives in Oakland with her husband and two children.

The name says it all—creativity exists inside every person, and it's worthy of exploring. It can sometimes be hidden, suppressed, or ignored, maybe because it isn't what others expect of this person or that person, but creativity is a natural part of every person, and that's what I appreciate most about Creativity Explored. It acknowledges the creative spark within every person and simply says, "Let's explore."
