Katherine Liu

Hi there! I’m a designer and illustrator in the Bay Area, and I’m currently in the process of starting my own company (just started in June!). Before that, I was a senior product designer at Instagram, and have also spent time at Facebook, IDEO, and Salesforce. As a product designer, I worked across product strategy, interaction design, and visual design. In my free time, I do freelance illustration (client work and running my own small art business)—would love to chat about any or all of these things if they match your interests!

Mike Jongbloet

Hi, I’m a UX and strategy focused designer with over a decade of experience working in digital. Whilst I’ve spent most of my career in agency environments; first as a designer/developer, then as a User Experience Lead, and most recently as Head of Design, I’ve also worked in the corporate environment and have most recently taken on a new challenge in a start-up, where I’ve chosen to make the unusual move from a leadership position back to being an individual contributor. As well as practical design skills and approaches, I’ve also got experiences and lessons to share on being the first design hire, being a design team of one, leading a design team and growing a design team.
