UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS

Zack Peacock is a senior graphic design student, expected to graduate in spring 2020. Growing up, Zack was always into his own thing; uninterested in team sports, he always felt like a bit of an outsider. When he was 10 he discovered skateboarding, and since he was always into drawing would draw on his boards or paint over the existing graphics. In high school he took a digital arts class and found that there were careers in the art world that interested him more than anything else. During his sophomore year at the UArts, Zack was introduced to typography. Although thrown off guard, he fell in love with it. Zack is interested in all things print, especially editorial work. Outside of design, he still spends his free time skateboarding, as well as taking photos. Both skateboarding and photography play a big role in his design work and Zack continues to use those skills to push design forward.
