Zev Powell

ZEV 1000 X1000small

Associate Service Designer

A deep thinker and a natural problem solver, Zev is able to reframe complex problems while keeping users at the forefront of design.

Originally from the US, Zev gained a Bachelor of Anthropology before going on to complete a Certificate in Interaction Design and Social Entrepreneurship at the Austin Center for Design (AC4D).

At AC4D, Zev designed and piloted a digital tool (SELect) that helped college academics assist ‘non-traditional students’—those who faced social and emotional barriers to their studies. He was the design researcher on a project aimed at encouraging younger repeat blood donors (for ‘We Are Blood’), and honed his skills as an interviewer at several research companies in Melbourne.

At Today, Zev has been involved in projects such as Zero Net Carbon Homes for Sustainability Victoria, and working with the University of Melbourne to improve the taxonomy of their courses.
