Van Kampen is an Assistant Professor of Visual Communication at San Francisco State University’s School, of Design. She is focused on research projects that investigate grassroots initiatives that define community spaces and how educators can help create the next generation of creative thinkers to be socially and ethically driven in terms of inclusive and sustainable design outcomes. Her research into creative practice as protest has been disseminated internationally through conferences and journal publications. Van Kampen is also a contemporary feminist artist, using traditional sewing techniques such as embroidery, needlepoint, and quilting to deconstruct messages found in contemporary commercial design. Since moving to San Francisco she has joined the AIGA and works closely with the SFSU AIGA student organization.
