Come meet Khoi Vinh, Director of Mobile Product Design at Adobe and one of the most influential product designers working today. At Adobe he's been putting the attention back onto designers and the needs of the design community, working directly to create tools that move interaction design forward at a global scale.
Khoi is internationally recognized for bringing the tried-and-true principles of the typographic grid to the World Wide Web. He writes and lectures widely on design, technology, and culture, and has published the popular blog Subtraction.com for over a decade.
His career is global but started in New York. He was a founder at Behavior Design - a studio he helped manage and run for four successful years before leaving to become the design director for NYTimes.com. During his five-year tenure, he remade the way design is practiced at Times. He is also the author of a book, "How They Got There: Interviews with Digital Designers About Their Careers", the definitive look at how creative careers in digital media are built.
In 2011 he co-founded Mixel, which released a deeply influential iPad app combining the power of social networks and multi-touch tablets to let people from all walks of life make art. Khoi continues to work with, advise, and support startups and designers in New York City and around the world, and, with Adobe, he is helping to build the next generation of software for creative professionals.
