Get to know our fantastic speakers a little better

We’re excited about the speaker line-up we’ve got for you, and about a few surprises yet to come. But it’s still a while until September, so we wanted to whet your appetites, and perhaps get you a little more familiar with the speakers, their work, and their philosophies. To that...

Speaker announcement: Glen Drummond of Quarry

Given the comparisons in his self-bio, we expected Glen to be swarthier and possibly fictional. But designers are nothing if not adaptable, and given he’s been an innovator for three decades, Glen’s a master at it by now. Not content to rest on his laurels in his wide-ranging role at...

Speaker announcement: Michal Levin of Google

For a moment we thought we’d stumbled on to the secret of Michal’s success in great UX design… but then we realized that the psychic Michal that Google coughed up wasn’t her. Probably a good thing. Her talk might have been a bit creepy… As it is, she has invaluable...

Speaker announcement: James Wu of Kobo

James can read you like a book, though we’re not yet sure if people are more like eBooks or the traditional paper kind. (Our guess is Choose Your Own Adventure). James originally got into the “better mousetrap” game designing tools for software developers, and these days focuses on the digital...

Speaker announcement: Todd Zaki Warfel of Inflection

Speaker announcement: Whitney Quesenbery

We think Whitney has the best librarian name ever. We’re only off by a generation, though, as she’s the daughter of one. Before turning her focus to user experience and usability matters online, she honed her sense for storytelling and user experience on a very different stage — literally —...

Speaker announcement: Jessica Ivins of Happy Cog

Don’t ask Jessica to design something pink for you without a darned good reason. One of her most popular speaking topics is on designing for women and our tendency to shrink and pink everything. (The Fluxible logo is… umm… deep cerise. Honest…) Given her fondness for red wine, craft beers,...

Speaker announcement: Gene Smith of nForm

You can tag this speaker profile under: user experience, social, and the letter N. Given that Gene literally wrote the book on metadata and the social web, we’re sure he can tweak them as need. As President of nForm, Gene straddles business and design, as well as the left and...
