LOCATION: Capital One 1680 Capital One Drive McLean, VA 22102 ABOUT THE TALK: "We shape our tools and, thereafter, our tools shape us." —John Culkin Designers today have more power than ever to impact the way humans use technology. The tools we create can impact millions of people around the world. We'd better do it well. Tom Giannattasio has spent his career designing tools for professional creatives. Through success and failure, he's established a design philosophy for delivering tools that people want. Join us as we discuss how to design tools that stand out in the market and deliver highly-satisfying, highly-productive experiences. ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Tom Giannattasio is a fanatical tool designer. He's a Director of Product Design at InVision where he leads efforts on InVision Studio. He founded and built Macaw, which InVision acquired in 2015. Earlier in his career, he helped design and build products for Apple, Oracle and MIT. SPONSOR - INVISION: InVision is the Digital Product Design platform used to make the world’s best customer experiences.

That includes more than 80 percent of the Fortune 100, and organizations like Airbnb, Amazon, HBO, Netflix, Slack, Starbucks and Uber, who are now able to design better products, faster. SPONSOR - CAPITAL ONE: Capital One Design brings humanity, simplicity, ingenuity to Capital One products and services—and impacts lives by empowering people to have better control over their money.
