In the past five years, I have dedicated much of my effort to helping people learn the skills they need to succeed and pursue their passions, both in professional practice at frog, as a teacher at California College of the Arts, and as a writer of design books that encourage learning by doing. That's why I'm excited to announce that today I joined Lynda.com as their Director of User Experience. In my new role at Lynda.com, I am responsible for the design of their product across devices and platforms, leading a team of UX designers that want to help people around the world reach their fullest potential.
If you're like me, Lynda.com has been there for you when you needed it most. At pivotal moments in my career, Lynda.com has provided me with the training that I needed to advance in my career. Lynda.com has been a premier resource for advancing our individual and collective practices as designers, creators, and businesspeople. For this reason, I'm thrilled that I'll be able to collaborate with their team to make it even better. (And if you're passionate about making a difference in the online learning space, you should join me! I am currently hiring a few UX designers and senior UX designers to join our San Francisco office.)
In addition to this, I have other news. Upon leaving frog as a full-time employee, I have been named a frog Fellow. I am humbled to have been chosen for this rare honor, and will continue to advise select social impact, design education, and project-based learning initiatives at frog in the coming year.
Thank you for supporting my efforts for these seven years I've been blogging about design on ChangeOrder, and here's looking forward to many more!
