Professor Ganci received a B.A. in Fine Art/Graphic Design from Eastern Illinois University and an M.F.A. in Design Development and Research from The Ohio State University. With professional experience in graphic, interaction, and user experience design, he is an expert in both the visual design of digital interfaces and in the translation of user needs into useful, usable, and desirable experiences.
