"Knowledge is power

Dr. Xenia Danos

"Xenia brought considerable teaching skills with her to Loughborough Design School. Xenia made very effective contributions to the teaching of engineering drawing at Loughborough and to the PGCE programmes at Loughborough and Sheffield Hallam Universities."

Emeritus Professor Eddie NormanDesign Education Loughborough Design School

"Xenia is an excellent colleague who excels both as an independent practitioner and as a member of a team. She will always make that extra effort to ensure the success of a student or a research project."

Professor Ken BaynesRoyal College of Art

"I would definitely recommend Xenia and her seminars to anyone wanting to improve their techniques. She had a great impact on my teaching; she would identify areas for improvement and help improve and expand my teaching skills without me even noticing that I was using her new techniques! I’m sure my students would also appreciate the impact of your work!"

Erasmia VassiliadouLecturer at a VET College Co-Owner of a Beauty Salon

"Within a semester Dr. Danos completely reformulated our course in Design and Technology so that, for the first time, it placed emphasis on Visual Communication and the development of Graphicacy Literacy. Her course structure and content was highly appreciated by the students and is largely used to this date for our School Practicum"
