Zac DeLane is a designer based in Austin, Texas. He's an educator and design researcher that's interested in understanding how we as humans make things, and how we interact with things. Things that are designed by everyday people.
Zac DeLane is a design educator working to help train, inform and develop the everyday generation of students, thinkers, educators, and humans into everyday designers. Through his human-centered design process: questioning, researching, prototyping and making, students and the public learn about how we can question the everyday objects we look at and observe every day. By noticing, as Zac says "the little things" (and what his Mom calls 'over-reacting'), Zac believes that anyone can be a designer. His interest and research focuses on the field of civic design, specifically wayfinding and design systems that fuse the practices of industrial, graphic, and interaction design into one comprehensive system. Through this fusion of practices and core beliefs in human-centered design, his work leads to empathetic and seamless experiences of his end users.
He's currently studying design at UT Austin and is on track to graduate in 2024. He hopes to become a high-school or college educator in the field of design and engage in freelance work.
