Hello! I'm Nancy Rasche.

I'm an Interaction Designer, an Industrial Designer, and a Design Educator.

I currently teach at Purdue University's Polytechnic Institute in the HCDD Department.

  • As an Interaction Designer, I have worked in a variety of different areas. My research is focused on the development of mobile apps for children with autism.

  • As an Industrial Designer, I have worked at a consultancy and as an independent contractor. Primary fields of design included juvenile products and toys.

  • As a Design Educator, I find the intersection between Interaction Design and Industrial Design my focus. I have taught classes ranging from Freshman Design Drawing to Graduate Interaction Design Studies
