john-angelo-300

John Angelo is a product design lead for Facebook News. He uses his specialty with emotive psychology and interaction design to make sure users are not just easily using the service, but that they’re happy while doing it.

John started off telling me about his passion for news and about how growing up all over the world left an impression on him as a designer. We also talked about the ins and outs of interaction design, how he approaches new projects, and some of the highlights of his career. John’s had a really interesting career, and I’m looking forward to seeing what he’ll bring to Facebook!

karla-cole-300

I first heard about Karla Cole through a past guest — Allan Cole (no relation). As one of Facebook’s newest product designers, Karla works on one the composer unit, one of Facebook’s most vital features that asks “what’s on your mind” when you want to make a Facebook post.

Karla and I touched on a lot of topics, including design curriculum, how she approaches new projects, some of her dream projects, and her journey as a designer from North Carolina to Virginia to NYC to Facebook. Karla has some big goals for the future, and the combination of her enthusiasm and talent make her a force to be reckoned with in the design industry!

reggie-murphy-300

Last month, I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity — visiting Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, CA! I recorded some interviews while I was there that will air this month, and I spoke as part of Facebook’s Design Lecture Series. First up, I’m talking with UX research manager Reggie Murphy.

We started off by going into what UX research is and why it’s important for designers, and Reggie shared how studying radio websites in the mid-90s turned into the career he has today. Reggie also gave some great advice and resources for those of you interested in UX research and how it’s used to make design decisions at Facebook on a regular basis. Thanks to Facebook for helping make this month’s interviews happen!

kingsley-harris-300

If you’ve been listening to the show for the past few months, you’ve heard me doing short interviews with designers at Facebook. This week, I’m really glad to have the chance to interview one at length — Kingsley Harris.

Our conversation started off with Kingsley talking about what he does at Facebook, and then we spoke about how he got into design, his early days at social networking pioneer BlackPlanet, and talked about how we can get the next generation interested in design. Kingsley might not be the typical product designer, but it’s his mix of experiences and perspectives that make him stand out!
