Delana (Lanie) Gabbard is an associate professor of graphic design with a specialty in typography. After several years of working professionally as a designer, she gave up fame and fortune to give back by teaching. She’s charismatic and what she lacks in tact she makes up for in encouragement of her students.
Currently pursuing a couple of passion projects, revolving around hand lettering, Lanie is constantly pushing her own capabilities by learning and experimenting with all things typography.
She's a typographic gangster, an award-winning designer and has been published academically and online.
