William VanderVeen

Pronouns: he/him

Research interests:

Hello! My name is William and I’m a digital product designer by trade (UX/UI/apps/web) currently pursuing a master’s degree in Anthropology at NSSR.

Originally from North Carolina, I graduated with a Bachelor of Graphic Design from NC State in 2015. Since then, I’ve worked designing for a variety of different companies including Ticketmaster and the educational technology company Zearn. My hope in pursuing a master’s in Anthropology is to improve the quality of the field of design by further incorporating its most important element: people. Without an anthropological understanding of the subjects we are trying to design for, we have little hope for improving the field of design.

I’m very excited to be at NSSR, studying with some of the brightest in the world. Cheers!
