Leah Zhang-Kennedy, Lecturer, University of Waterloo Stratford School of Interaction Design and Business

Ever wonder how you can create professional, unified, and interesting layouts without a background or formal training in design? Whether you want to make an attractive presentation, build a prototype, set up your resume, make a poster, create a personal webpage, or format your term paper, design is embedded into many things we do. It is my goal that after you attend this workshop, you will have a more concrete and clear understanding of design and be able to apply the basic principles in your personal and professional work.

Leah Zhang-Kennedy is a lecturer at the University of Waterloo’s Stratford School of Interaction Design and Business. She has a Ph.D. in Computer Science and a Masters in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) from Carleton University. She uses an interdisciplinary approach to problem-solving by bridging her experience from Computer Science, HCI, and graphic design. Her research and teaching interests include user experience (UX), interaction design, graphic design, and digital media literacy.
