Lead Designer @ 8th Light
Eva PenzeyMoog is a Chicago-based activist and designer working to make digital spaces safer for everyone through centering the safety of survivors of domestic violence. She’s a Lead Designer at 8th Light, a custom software consultancy, where she specializes in user experience design and creating products focused on safety and inclusion.
In the past, Eva served as a rape crisis counselor, where she served as an advocate to sexual assault victims in emergency rooms. She also delivered a workshop on domestic violence and survivor support information to hundreds of participants, including educators, school support staff, and union groups. After entering the technology field as a designer, she began to focus on the intersections of technology and domestic violence. In 2019, she created the “Framework for Inclusive Safety,” which aims to help other technologists create safe and inclusive products. She is currently creating a set of standards for online and digital safety aimed at helping designers and programmers create safe products.
When not designing and thinking about safety, she can be found making cyanotype prints, consuming as much zombie media as she can get her hands on, and hanging out with her pit bulls, Hamlet and Horatio.
