Zak Weiland


I’m an interaction/user experience designer with over nine years experience in designing for healthcare, finance, IT, education, and e-commerce. I'm currently living in beautiful Austin, TX. I’ve helped build products for clients ranging anywhere from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies.

I help strategize user experience and user-centric design with clients, stakeholders, product owners, engineers, and designers through group discussions, interviews, and workshops to find the most effective balance between user needs and business goals.

Before making the transition to UX, I was a Visual Designer & Front-End Developer. Designing beautiful interactions and writing the cleanest code possible were a way of life.

I have a Bachelors Degree in Web & Digital Media Development from the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point.

When I'm not researching the mating rituals of interaction design and psychology, I'm an obsessed road cyclist, music lover, and comedy nerd. Not surpisingly, I also have a semi-inappropriate love affair with coffee.
