Zachary Faust is a senior in the Graphic Design Communication program at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University). He is currently the President of the AIGA Student group and works diligently to help strengthen the student AIGA body. Although creativity is in his blood, he has a strong passion in science that led him to start off his college career in pre-medical studies. Despite switching programs since then, he maintains his interest in trying to understand the natural world better each and every day. His other passions in life include black coffee, ball pythons, black and gold pens, spending all of his money on books he has no time to read, and quoting outdated vines on the daily.
