Hello! My name is Zack Tucker (he/him).

I'm a national leader in design education, civil rights activist, transdisciplinary designer, and Assistant Professor of Communication Design at Miami University in Oxford, OH USA.

I also serve on the AIGA Design Educators Community (DEC) Steering Committee.

What I Do

I utilize immersive, narrative, and autoethnographic research methodologies to explore civic engagement through a transdisciplinary practice in experience design. In particular, I engage communities around lessons learned from Freedom Summer 1964 and their relevance to contemporary racial justice and civil rights work. My work tends to be interactive, collaborative, and reflective. By conducting research through design, I enact theory into practice through radical hospitalityinviting everyone into the joy of discovery and inquiry through collaborative and inclusive design activities aimed at repairing harms perpetuated by white supremacy, building relationships, and activating a shared future.
