About the Book
Vic is a Peruvian-Chinese queer creative human from Lima, Perú, living in one of the suburbs in the Austin area, Leander, Texas. Vic grew up in Dallas and has worked as a designer and art director in the Dallas and Austin areas since 2008. They recently finished their MFA in graphic design at Vermont College of Fine Arts in the spring of 2022. They currently teach full-time as an associate professor of practice at The University of Texas in Austin in the School of Design and Creative Technologies. Their areas of concentration of their research, passion projects, and community service-based work have always focused on using design principles and design thinking to problem-solve and bring awareness about issues faced by vulnerable communities such as theirs. Vic’s creative approach always comes from an empathetic angle or reaction to the matters they have personally experienced as a queer, nonbinary, immigrant, Latinx human being with a disability living in America today.
