Jacobs Design Conversations: Steve Johnson

March 4, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Steve Johnson’s 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, Steve 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 Mobile, Consumer, and Professional product lines.

Now with LinkedIn, Steve 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.

Johnson will share his insights on “What We Look for in World-Class User Experience Professionals” on March 4, 12-1pm. Registration will open roughly one month prior to the talk; to receive a reminder when registration opens, sign up here.
