I’m a designer with 20 years of experience in brand, product design, and creative direction. I have an international reputation for creating warm, smart, and effective design for a variety of companies in technology and publishing. Among these is Abstract (acq. Adobe), which I co-founded in 2014. I’m head of brand at Modern Treasury.
I also write and speak about design. Several of my essays and lectures are assigned in design classrooms around the world and act as foundational texts in the web design industry, including Everything Easy is Hard Again, The Web’s Grain, and What Screens Want. In 2012, I wrote, illustrated, and published The Shape of Design.
