AWCPS Event: Evening with Google and Girl Geeks at Google in Fremont

User Experience Design: The Way of the Geek Artist



The best of both worlds: how minimalist design and "form becomes function" make applications fast and elegant, as well as usable. We’ll also discuss how having geek skillz lifts a designer out of the "make it pretty" ghetto in product teams.


Dorothy Nelson

Dorothy Nelson is a User Experience Design Manager at Google. She has been programming and designing user-focused front-end interfaces since the mid-1980s, from Bell Communication Research and Oracle to uber-dot-bomb Webvan, then to eBay (designing the selling experience) and Google. In her spare time, Dorothy enjoys traditional "dirty-hands" arts involving charcoal and ink and the non-traditional art of Silly Putty sculpture, as well as horsing around with her non-artistic but lovable husband and yellow Labradors.
