  • To learn FROM USERS what makes a design compelling, usable, addictive.
  • To create digital experiences that help people do amazing things with grace and panache.

  • Dumb, old, slow, wasteful waterfall processes that produce things that aren't compelling
  • Traditional creative pretensions and dogma
  • Design that looks pretty but doesn't really solve problems

...and in your job, you want:

  • To work on visible, awesome projects
  • To occasionally travel to interesting places, but because you want to - not because you have to.
  • Great colleagues, office, location, and parties.
