My name is Zachary Reese and I'm a designer from Philadelphia. I work at a University of Pennsylvania think-tank where I create projects like the political literacy site and the teaching tool Civics Renewal Network. I also founded Sport, a design agency specializing in virtual reality. My work has been featured on CNN, MSNBC, PBS, MTV, USA Today, and tons of other places. I feel like I'm doing okay for myself.

Leftover Soundtrack Snippets

I needed to come up with a ton of “harsh, youthy” soundtracks to 30-second ads for a big grant project I’m working on. These were rejected for not being abrasive enough. What I ended up going with was essentially a feedback loop with tons of distortion swells. It’s so easy it almost feels like cheating, but if it works there’s no shame in easy.
