I am Aaron Ganci, an Assistant Professor of Visual Communication Design at Herron School of Art and Design, part of Indiana University, in Indianapolis, IN. My expertise is the area of in the visual design of online environments (user interface design).
Coming from an educational background (MFA 2011, Ohio State University; BA 2006, Eastern Illinois University) encompassing print, interaction, and user experience design, I am well-positioned to document design’s transition to new on-screen and interactive environments.
My current research interests include:
- The role of the designer in web development
- Visualization tactics for large data sets
- Interaction design, experience design, and general on-screen design curriculum
- Team-centric design processes
In addition teaching, I also consult on a variety of digital design projects. Most recently, I have been consulting on the development of a visual design system for a worldwide suite of digital library tools (including WorldCat and FirstSearch) produced by the Online Computer Library Center, Inc. in Dublin, OH.
