I love to make things.

Here are some examples. I worked at the Art Institute of Seattle for a year teaching designers about code, designed an email game called The Long Talk, have given many talks including one at SXSW called How Great Design Ruins Experience and another one called Design While Shipping, am writing a book I'm jokingly calling I Hope You Like Words, ran a short lived and beloved blog called Fuck Jetpacks, wrote a book on design called The Thing About Jetpacks, give away all my sketchbooks, created a micro-blogging site called Yay Bouquet, have three children, draw an ongoing comic called Yet Another Comic, wrote a design blog and book called Design Dare, wrote an essay named Design Courage, wrote an essay called McDonald's Theory, worked at frog design, wrote an essay called "Of Course" Design, currently work at Twitter, redesigned the mainframe for Computer Associates, designed an app for a voice transcription company called Jott that launched on the app store on day one and was #1 in productivity for a while, designed and wrote the code for TV's Big Brother 3, am the co-author of Design Explosions, a new kind of design critique,, designed several board games when I was a kid, launched three successful Kickstarter campaigns called For One Hundred Of Our Closest Friends, run a company called UX Launchpad, was a design lead on Windows Phone, have three email lists called Big New Things, New Things, and just Things, designed a concert poster for an anonymous musician named Slow Magic, host a monthly meetup called Design Play Seattle that's a lot of fun, and I wrote this silly webpage.

My current status:

I'm currently enjoying the remaining 69% of my leisure time this evening.

I like to write, speak at events, and read your email. I'd love to hear from you at jon@lot23.com.
