Hi, I’m Zach! 👋

Design education at Figma in Amsterdam.

Previously, I led the communications design team at Square. I also work with the modern parfumerie Call of the Vialed.

My writing on design tools and presentation design can be found on Medium. And I just launched a new project to share resources and guidance called presentation.design.
