Original Post

Join Steve Johnson, Director of User Experience Design at LinkedIn for a lunch time lecture!

Johnson is a pop culture fanatic, and avid musician whose career in user-centered design started as a Skills Trainer with Autistic children. By redesigning and tweaking everyday objects for children with mild to severe autism, he developed a design philosophy focused on observing behaviors, mapping patterns, identifying goals and testing key assumptions. After Pacific Autism, Johnson worked in interactive gaming with Electronic Arts, and later moved to Adobe Systems where he led the User Experience Design Group, a team responsible for Adobe's Mobile, Consumer, and Professional product lines. Now with LinkedIn, Johnson leads a multi-disciplinary team of User Experience Design (UED) professionals, made up of Marketing & Brand Communication Designers, Voice and Tone Specialists, User Researchers, and Product Designers. Responsible for creating experiences across Mobile, Desktop and Web, the UED team plays an integral part in improving usability, growing member engagement, and increasing revenue across Linkedin.

Co-presented by the Arts + Design Initiative, Berkeley Center for New Media, and the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation.
