Dr Rob Potts
I am lecturer in Creative Digital Design at School of Digital Arts (SODA) at Manchester Metropolitan University. I have a cross-domain and post-disciplinary approach to research focusing on collaborative innovation and a broad specialist practice profile.
As a creative director and studio practitioner, I consult on design projects, make innovative films and interactive experiences. Through research and practice, I am motivated to explore collaboration across boundaries in creative environments and critical territories, expanding the thresholds of learning, design and leadership.
